The Romans Road to Salvation

The Romans Road method is a simple way of explaining God’s plan of salvation through Bible verses taken from the book of Romans. The Romans Road is often used by evangelists, Bible workers and lay people to share the gospel. For it answers important questions about salvation and invites the hearers to respond. The following is a Romans Road explanation of salvation:

1-Who Needs Salvation?

Everyone needs salvation because all have sinned. The Bible says, “There is none righteous, no, not one; there is none who understands; there is none who seeks after God. They have all turned aside; they have together become unprofitable; there is none who does good, no, not one” for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God(Romans 3:10-12, 23).

Response: Admit you are a sinner.

2-Why Do We Need Salvation?

The consequence of sin is death. The Bible says, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 6:23).

Response: Understand that as a sinner, you deserve death.

3-How Does God Provide Salvation?

Jesus Christ died to save us from our sins. By His sacrifice, He paid the penalty for our transgressions. The Bible says, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

Response: Believe Jesus Christ died on the cross to save you from the penalty of your sins which is eternal death.

4-How Do We Receive Salvation?

We receive salvation and eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ’s redemptive death on our behalf. The Bible says, “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be savedFor with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:9-10, 13).

Response: Repent by forsaking your sins and accept a new life in Christ through His enabling power.

5-What Are the Results of Salvation?

Salvation through Jesus Christ brings us into peace with God as we walk in His path of holiness. “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1).

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit” (Romans 8:1).

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,  nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39).

Response: Receive, through faith in Jesus Christ, his free gift of salvation and walk through His strength in obedience to His words.

A Romans Road Prayer

The Romans Road method have helped millions of people around the Lord to understand and accept God’s gift of love and salvation (John 3:16). If you are not part of God’s family and would like to accept Him in your heart, start by praying this prayer:

“Heavenly Father, I am a sinner that deserves the wages of sin which is death. I believe that Jesus Christ died to redeem me from death. I confess that Jesus Christ is my Lord and accept by faith His sacrificial death on my behalf. I accept your power to overcome sin in my life. Help me to daily connect myself to You. I thank you for Your love, forgiveness, peace, and eternal life. In Jesus’ Name Amen!”

To maintain your connection with God, study the Scriptures daily and pray in order to be empowered to overcome sin and all temptations (John 15:4). As men abide in the Lord, Christ dwells in them and they become partakers of His divine nature (2 Peter 1:4).
