What do you mean there’s a simple path to salvation?
The Romans Road is one of many different tools to use to help understand how someone experiences salvation. This article will give you a simple overview of the Romans Road. If you are reading this and do not even believe that you need to be saved then you’re at the perfect place. The Romans Road does not just give instruction on what you need to do to be accepted into Heaven, it also tells why you must make yourself right as well as the sacrifice that was necessary so that you can become right in the sight of God.
First off, the Romans Road Must be Seen as it is Intended
If you think the purpose of following the Romans Road is to get to Heaven, than you are wrong. As a Christ follower, the goal is not to get into Heaven. Sadly enough this is how many Christians are trying to live. They make all the “sacrifices” necessary in life to get into Heaven. That is not what God wants though; he isn’t looking for people who can make it into Heaven. He’s looking for those who desire relationship with Him. He’s looking for people that choose to accept Jesus as the only way they can become forgiven for their sins. Sin is not disqualification for Heaven. Sins are actions that separate you from God. As one can see in the Romans Road, sin causes us to fall short of what God intended. So when we ask for forgiveness, it’s not that it keeps us from sinning but it restores our relationship with God.
Heaven is a place for the people that are united with God by accepting the sacrifice of Jesus as atonement for their sins. Heaven is where God exists and where relationship someday will honor him without the destructive nature sin offers. Until then, God gave a way to become united with him again through the restorative process of forgiveness.
The Romans Road
All have sinned. No one is worthy of relationship with God because we are naturally sinners.
We deserve death for our sin, but we receive eternal life as a gift from God.
God loves us so much that even while we continue separating ourselves from Him through sin, he sent his son Jesus to become the sacrifice for us.
If you declare Jesus as Lord and believe that he was raised from the dead than you will be saved.
Everyone who calls on Jesus’ name will be spared
Since we are made right through faith, we have peace with God because of Jesus.
