Romans 3:10KJV As it is written, there is none Righteous, no, not one
Romans 3:23KJV For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God.
Romans 5:12KJV Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
Because we have sinned God expects a payment (wage) for that sin. The only payment He accepts is death. The place that God has prepared for sinners is called HELL. All of humanity has a destination in Hell because we are sinners. Death is what we deserve because we owe a debt for our sin.
Romans 6:23a For the wages of sin is death
There is good news! God loves us so much that He offered His only Begotten Son , Jesus to pay our sin debt for us. This is a gift.
The gift is available to every person. When we believe that Jesus died for us on the cross to pay our debt, personally, we can have life ETERNALLY. At the moment we believe in what Jesus did on the cross our destination changes from Hell to Heaven when we leave this earth.
Romans 6:23b but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord
A couple more steps on the Romans Road show us more promises from our Heavenly Father.
Romans 5:8KJV But God commendeth His love towards us, in that, while were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 10:13KJV For Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved
God wants to hear it from you. He wants you to confess (profess) that Jesus is the only one perfect enough to pay for your sin debt and that you believe Jesus died on the cross for you. God wants you to make it personal. When you feel that nudging at your heart it is because the Holy Spirit is calling you to believe. You believe in your heart and when you say it out loud that is so that everyone else around you can rejoice in your decision to accept Jesus as your savior.
It is not necessary for you to do anything but believe.
You do not need to join a church.
You do not need to walk an aisle.
You do not need to complete a decision card.
You do not need to do anything but call on the Name of the Lord.
Romans 10:9-10KJV That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe that God has 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.
When we walk the Romans Road and believe on Christ as our personal Savior we enter into a new life. The Holy Spirit comes into our heart and gives us the power to walk in newness of life here on earth.
The next thing to do is find a bible-believing church and learn how to walk in this new life. Learning about the Lord and HIS ways is essential to growing as a new Christian.
We here at Safe Harbor Baptist Church in Cochranville, Pa. are praying for folks every day and if you have entered into this newness of life with Christ call or email us that we may rejoice and pray for you as you grow in the faith and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
