Today’s devotional is about sharing the road to salvation. A recent study I completed through the Christian University Online referred to it as the “Romans Road to Salvation”. This is probably due to the fact that it consists of 8 different scriptures all found in the book of Romans in the Bible.
Follow me as we take a trip down the “Romans Road to Salvation” and dig into scripture to see what the Bible says about salvation and its importance in our life.
Recognize that no one is free of sin- no one is perfect.
Romans 3:23 NKJV- 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Recognize the consequences of sin without Jesus
Romans 6:23 NKJV- 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Acknowledge the sacrifice and love from God
Romans 5:8 NKJV- 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Accept and confess- you are a sinner and need Jesus to save you
Romans 10:9 NKJV- 9 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 saved.
Call upon Him-Invite Him into your life- You are saved
Romans 10:13 NKJV- 13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Gift of Salvation
Romans 5:1 NKJV- Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
You are free!
Romans 8:1 NKJV- 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.
Thank you for the gift of salvation. For loving me so much to send your son to die for my sins. Lord I recognize that I am a sinner and fall short of your glory each day. Forgive me Lord for the sins I have committed. Lord help to give me discernment, strength through temptation, and ability to withstand the deceit from Satan. I am so thankful you are a forgiving and gracious God, regardless of my many short comings. It’s in Jesus’ mighty name I pray.
