Romans Road
 

How do I reach God for never-ending life? 

God created all people and loves all people.  God desires an ongoing relationship with creation. Follow us down the Romans Road and learn how to receive never-ending life with God.

The first stop on the Romans Road to never-ending life is Romans 3:23, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." We have all sinned. We have all done things that are displeasing to God. There is no one who is innocent. Romans 3:10-18 gives a detailed picture of what sin looks like in our lives.

The second stop on the Romans Road to never-ending life, Romans 6:23, teaches us about the consequences of sin - "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." The punishment for our sin is death -- not just physical death, but eternal death.

The third stop on the Romans Road to never-ending life picks up where Romans 6:23 left off, "but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 5:8 declares, "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Jesus Christ died for us! Jesus' death paid for the price of our sins. Jesus' resurrection proves that God accepted Jesus' death as the payment for our sins.

The fourth stop on the Romans Road to never-ending life is Romans 10:9, "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." Because of Jesus' death on our behalf, all we have to do is believe in Him, trusting His death as the payment for our sins - and we will be saved! Romans 10:13 says it again, "for everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." Jesus died to pay the penalty for our sins and rescue us from eternal death. Never-ending life, the forgiveness of sins, is available to anyone who will trust in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

The final stop on the Romans Road to never-ending life provides wonderful results. Romans 5:1 says, "Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." Through Jesus Christ we can have a relationship of peace with God. Romans 8:1 teaches us, "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." Because of Jesus' death on our behalf, we will never be condemned for our sins. Finally, we have this previous promise of God from Romans 8:38-39, "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Would you like to follow the Romans Road to never-ending life? If so, here is a prayer you can pray to God. Saying this prayer is a way to declare to God that you are relying on Jesus Christ for your salvation. The words themselves will not save you. Only faith in Jesus Christ can provide never-ending life! 

"God, I know that I have sinned against you and I deserve punishment.  Jesus Christ took the punishment that I deserve, so that through faith in Him I could be forgiven.  I turn away from my sin and place my trust in You for never-ending life.  Thank You for Your wonderful grace and forgiveness - the gift of eternal life! Amen!"
