What is the Romans Road?
Simply put, the Romans Road shows the path to Heaven. It uses points from the book of Romans in the Bible to explain God’s gift of salvation. At each stop we learn something new about why we need salvation, how God has provided for it, and how we receive it.
As you look at each of the six points outlined here, take time to reflect on what God’s Word has to say. Remember that the book of Romans was written to people just like you and me: people living in a busy culture, trying to make sense of what is true and what is most important in life.
The Romans Road describes the only way to Heaven. Study it, learn it, and follow it!
1. Everyone Needs Salvation
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
2. Jesus Died For Our Salvation
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
3. Salvation Is A Gift
The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23)
4. We Are Saved By Grace
And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. (Romans 11:6)
5. Salvation Comes Through Faith
To him who … believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness. (Romans 4:5)
6. God Saves All Who Call Upon Him
Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)
The Bible says there are two roads in life: one is the way to eternal joy in Heaven, and the other leads to eternal punishment in Hell. Which road are you on?
Follow the Romans Road to salvation today. Recognize that you are a sinner and that your sin must be judged by God. See that Jesus died to pay the penalty for your sin, but that you must choose to accept His provision. Understand that you cannot earn your way to Heaven through good works or religious activity. Now turn to God and put your faith in Jesus Christ who died for you and rose again.
If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9,10)
