The Roman’s Road to Salvation

So you want to get saved, or want to know more about salvation.  You might have heard the term “saved” from many people, but what is it?  Each person will explain their salvation experience differently.  Some will say a weight was lifted off, others set free and others might say they felt cleansed.  When you go to the core of each person’s salvation there is one common link, Jesus Christ.  How can you get saved?  Well, let’s go on The Roman’s Road and find out:

  1. You need to recognize that you are living in sin and have sinned.  Not just you, we all have.
    As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.  Romans 3:10
    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.  Romans 3:23
  2. When we sin, there is a penalty or a price to pay for that sin:
    For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23).
    If we die in this sinful condition the price we pay is eternity, eternity in Hell.
  3. We must understand that God has made a way:
    But God commendth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).
    God sent His only begotten Son to die for our sins.  When Jesus died for our sins, He became the way to set us free from those sins.
  4. Since Jesus has made the way, believe in Him as your Lord and Savior and confess to  Him your every sin:
    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (Romans 10:9-13).

Now that you have walked the Roman’s Road and received Jesus Christ you are a born-again child of God, a new creation.  Is this where it ends?  No my friend, now you will journey here on Earth until you reach that Heavenly City.  How?  Take the seed that was planted in your heart and find a Bible-believing Church.  Let your roots grow deep.  If you are in the Kilgore, Texas area we would love to have you join us and make Old Paths Tabernacle your home.
