You need to be saved

A Bible Study by Adam Osborne, Jr.

Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Adam Clarke’s Commentary, Abingdon Publishing, Nashville, TN. – “All have sinned. Consequently all are equally helpless and guilty. God is no respecter of persons. All humans are equal. No one preferred over another. Therefore, God’s endless mercy has embraced all.”

Hebrews 9:27 “It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this is judgment.”

    • Death in this world is not the end. There is an “after this”.
    • Judgment = There will be a judgment day. All sins will be confronted and judged by Jesus. But, through Jesus Christ we believers will be forgiven.
    • John 3:3 “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
    • Clarke – “Every man must have two births. One from heaven, one from earth. One for his soul, the other for his body. Just like when you are born into the world you see the light of this world, you need to be born again to see the light of heaven, or right and wrong.? Without being born again, you can never see heaven. Heaven is a place of holiness, and nothing but what is like itself can ever enter into it.”

Ecclesiastes7:20 “There is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.” 

    • Clarke

      “There are no just men on the earth. So we should all continually watch and pray, and depend upon the Lord for his guidance, leadership and grace.”

    • Isaiah 53:6 “All we like sheep have gone astray: we have turned every one to his own way.”


      Proverbs 14: “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

    • We, mortal men and women, can not know God’s mind or plan. We, can not save ourselves. If we do not have the atoning blood of Jesus Christ in our blood, we will die.
    • Titus 3:5 “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us.”
    • Clarke
    • “Not by works of righteousness = Jesus died for us as sinners, not people doing righteous acts. Murderers, disobedience, foolishness, deceivers. They have no righteousness to deserve his saving grace, but through Jesus, God allows us to enter his kingdom. They are saved by mercy.”

      Ephesians 2:8-9 “By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not of works, lest any man should boast.”

    • Clark

      “The original Greek text also stated that … faith…. is the gift of God. God by his mercy, gives you the power to believe. When man chooses to accept God, man glorifies God. God never believes for any man, no more than he repents for him. That is something he gives us power to do, but we must do it ourselves.”

      James 2:10 “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.”

    • Clarke

      “The truth is, any sin against God is punishable by death. For if God should be obeyed in any one instance, he should be obeyed in all. His authority and reason for obedience are the same in every case:

      • World is and was in a ruinous, condemned state. Man has no power to save himself.
      • Through God’s love, he provided the ultimate sacrifice.
      • Jesus was the only answer.
      • Sin must be an indescribable evil when God himself died to make atonement for our sins.
      • No man is saved by this act unless you choose to believe and thus give God the glory and credit for your salvation. When you do, you are exempted from eternal perdition and you may have everlasting life in glory.”


      John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

  • 1 Peter 3:18 “Christ hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God.”
  • 11 Corinthians 5:12″ For He (God) hath made Him (Jesus) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.



  • Acts 16:31 “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”


  • Acts 17:30 “In the past God overlooks such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent.”


  • 1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just forgive? us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”


  • Romans 10:13 “For whosoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved.”

    Comments:The book of Romans is an outstanding testament on the path to salvation. The “Roman Road” has been used for generations by all denominations as a pathway to Jesus, our Savior.

    • Who has sinned?

      Romans 3:23-24 “For all have sinned, and come short of the Glory of God; being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Jesus Christ.”

    • Where sin came from?

      Romans 5:12 “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and; so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.”

    • God’s price on sin.

      Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

    • Romans 8:13 “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die, but if ye through the spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.”

    Our way out!

    Who is good

    Romans 3:10? “As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one.”

    • Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
  • Romans 10:9,10 “That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.”

  • Romans 10:11-13 For the scriptures says, “Whoever believes in Him will not be disappointed. For there is no distinction between Jew or Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call upon him.? For whosoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved.”
