How to Know Jesus

Path to Salvation

According to the book of Romans (also known as “The Roman Road”)

Step 1 . . . Realization of Sin (Why do I need to be saved?  The Bad News)
Romans 1:18       “The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and                                   unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness.”
Romans 3:10       “There is none righteous, not even one.”
Romans 3:23       “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Romans 6:23a     “For the wages of sin is death…”
Step 2 . . . Realization of God’s Mercy (The Good News)
Romans 5:8         “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were
                                yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 6:23b    “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in                                    Christ Jesus our Lord.”                                                                                       Reception of this free gift requires repenting from sin and trusting in Jesus!

Step 3 . . . Realization of how to Receive New Life (Your Part in the News)                           Romans 10:8-10 “The Word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart – – that is,                                           the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with                                         your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God                                                 raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a                                             person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he                                         confesses, resulting in salvation.”                                                         Romans 10:13     “Whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Step 4 . . . Realization of a New Standing before GOD (The Great News)                   Romans 8:1        “There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”       Romans 8:28      “God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God,                                    to those who are called according to His purpose.”

 Step 5 . . . Realization of Security in Christ (The Lasting News)                                   Romans 8:38-39 “I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor                                                        principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor                                    height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate                                    us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Step 6 . . . Realization of a Continuing Relationship with Christ  (The Living News)   Romans 12:1-2   “Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your                                     bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your                                           spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but                                 be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove                                     what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.”
