The Roman Road
The bad news: We are sinners
“As it is written, ‘there is none righteous, not even one” (Romans 3:10); “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23)
“Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned” (Romans 5:12)
Jesus died for you
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23); “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8)
How can I be sure of going to heaven?
“If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation” (Romans 10:9-10)
“For whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
How do I become God’s child?
“For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:26)
“And I will be a father to you, And you shall be sons and daughters to Me,” Says the Lord Almighty.” (2 Corinthians 6:18)
The promises of Jesus
Jesus said, “A thief comes only to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance;” (John 10:10) “He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.” (1 John 5:12)
“Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son;” (John 3:18)
“Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.” (John 14:21, NIV)
