A friend of mine recently sent me some verses that she thought might help me have a faith conversation with some family. Today I was researching what the "Romans Road" was and realized it included many of these verses from my friend.
These are wonderful, foundational verses that, truly, we all should have memorized! They are also a great place to start if you ever want to have a salvation conversation with someone. They are verses that talk about our sin, what God has done for us and by whom salvation is found.
I was going to write out each verse, but I think you will get more out of them by looking them up yourselves in a Bible of your own (or go to biblegateway.com). Spend some quiet time this week looking up and writing down these verses. Or take one verse a day and read the Scripture surrounding the verse to gain some context. I pray you will be blessed and be able to use these verses to draw others closer to Jesus. - Tiffany
"The Romans Road to salvation is a way of explaining the good news of salvation using verses from the Book of Romans. It is a simple yet powerful method of explaining why we need salvation, how God provided salvation, how we can receive salvation, and what are the results of salvation." (contenderministries.org)
(The "Romans Road" only includes the Romans verses.)
Romans 3:10, 23
Would you like to follow the Romans Road to salvation? If so, here is a simple prayer you can pray to God. Saying this prayer is a way to declare to God that you are relying on Jesus Christ for your salvation. The words themselves will not save you. Only faith in Jesus Christ can provide salvation!
"God, I know that I have sinned against you and am deserving of punishment. But Jesus Christ took the punishment that I deserve so that through faith in Him I could be forgiven. With your help, I place my trust in You for salvation. Thank You for Your wonderful grace and forgiveness - the gift of eternal life! Amen!" (contenderministries.org)
If you just prayed this prayer for the first time, congratulations! Welcome to the body of Christ! Please share this good news with a friend.
