The Bible Tells us How we can Have a Relationship with God

It’s not just a systematic way to build highways inherited from the Roman Empire in the 1st Century, It’s God’s plan of salvation set forth in Paul’s letter to the Romans. Also known as the Roman Road, the following is a collection of passages that build a beautiful and systematic approach to the gospel of grace by and through Jesus Christ.

Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” 

We must all realize that we are sinners and that we need forgiveness. We are not worthy of God’s grace.

Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” 

Through Jesus, God gave us a way to be saved from our sins. God showed us His Love by giving us the potential for life through the death of His Son, Jesus Christ.

Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” 

If we remain sinners, we will die. However, if we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, and repent of our sins, we will have eternal life.

Romans 10:9-10 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” 

Just confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved!

Romans 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” 

There are no religious formulas or rituals — Call upon the name of the Lord and you will be saved! Roman Road: Are You Ready to Accept God’s Gift of Salvation? If you truly believe the message of the Roman Road, and want to accept God’s gift of salvation right now, it’s a matter of repenting of your sins and turning the rest of your life over to Jesus Christ. Again, this is not a ritual based on any specific words or prayers, but rather, a willful decision and a sincere step of faith. “God, I ask You to forgive me of my sins. I believe in Jesus Christ and in His death on the cross for my sins. I ask You to enter my life right now, and provide me strength as I commit my life to You this day. I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.” If you decided to become a Christian today, welcome to God’s family. Now, as a way to grow closer to Him, the Bible tells us to follow up on our commitment as follows:

  • Get baptized as a public statement of your new faith in Christ.
  • Tell someone else about your new faith in Christ.
  • Spend time with God each day. It does not have to be a long period of time. Just develop the daily habit of praying to Him and reading His Word. Ask God to increase your faith and your understanding of the Bible.
  • Seek fellowship with other Christians. Develop a group of Christian friends to answer your questions and support you.
  • Find a local, “Bible Believing,” church where you can worship God and fellowship with other Christians.
