What is the Romans road?
Maybe you’ve heard a friend talk about the Romans Road to salvation and you’ve always wondered what it was. In a nut shell, it’s verses from the book of Romans that walk you through the path of salvation.
The Romans Road
Here, let’s take a walk down the Romans Road. It’s made up of eight Bible verses, all found in the book of Romans that illustrate five main points.
1.) We are all sinners
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,Romans 3:23
2.) The wages of sin is death
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.Romans 6:23
3.) Jesus died for sinners (that’s us)
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.Romans 5:8
4.) When we put our faith in Jesus, we are saved from our sins
Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.Romans 10:9
For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”Romans 10:13
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.Romans 5:1
5.) Once we are saved, we are saved forever
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.Romans 8:1
For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.Romans 8:38-39
There are, of course, slight variations of this, but each one walks through the path of Salvation in the book of Romans.
All have sinned -> The punishment for sin is death -> Jesus died for our sins -> When Jesus is the Lord of our lives, we are saved. -> There is no condemnation for those who belong to Jesus.
What is the Purpose?
The purpose of the Romans Road is clear, to walk you through the path of salvation in a clear and concise manner. After reading it, you know you are a sinner in need of a savior, and Jesus is that savior. You also know that if you accept Him as your savior, you are saved. End of story.
