The Roman Road
God’s Plan for the Salvation of Mankind as presented in the Book of Romans

Romans 1:20-21 (NIV) 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.

  • God is the creator of the world. As a matter of fact, the bible proves that God is the creator of “everything”. As the creator, we our our lives to God. He is our ruler and our maker.

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

  • We all have sin in our hearts. We all were born with sin. We were born under the power of sin’s control.

Romans 6:23a “…The wages of sin is death…”

  • Sin has an ending. It results in death. We all face physical death, which is a result of sin. But a worse death is spiritual death that alienates us from God, and will last for all eternity. The Bible teaches that there is a place called the Lake of Fire where lost people will be in torment forever. It is the place where people who are spiritually dead will remain.

Romans 6:23b “…But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

  • Salvation is a free gift from God to you! You can’t earn this gift, but you must reach out and receive it.

Romans 5:8 “God demonstrates His own love for us, in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us!”

  • When Jesus died on the cross He paid sin’s penalty. He paid the price for all sin, and when He took all the sins of the world on Himself on the cross, He bought us out of slavery to sin and death! Believe in Him and what He has done for us, understanding that we are now joined with Him, and that He is our life. He did all this because He loved us and gave Himself for us!

Romans 10:13 “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved!”

  • God has reconciled us to Him through his son Jesus. If you ask Jesus to come in to your life, and give your life to Him, you shall be saved!

Romans 10:9,10 “…If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus 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.”

  • See how easy God has made it? Just confess and believe!
