Are you looking for a different direction in life? Have you struggled with addictions, broken relationships, divorce, conflicts, arrest and incarceration? The “Roman Road”, named after the book of Romans in the Bible, gives us the path for changing our direction in life. It involves turning away from a sinful past and turning towards a relationship with Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who loves mankind.
Because of our sin, we are separated from God.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23) The Penalty for our sin is death.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23) The penalty for our sin was paid by Jesus Christ!
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8) If we repent of our sin, then confess and trust Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we will be saved from
For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)
…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. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9,10) (Retrieved from http://www.davidjeremiah.org/site/about/ becoming_a_christian.aspx)
If you have come to understand your sinful- ness, and believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins, then pray this prayer: Jesus, I un- derstand that I am hopelessly sinful. I believe that you came and died to give me hope. You came and died for my sins, and then rose again from the grave to reign in heaven. Your death for sins gives me forgiveness. Your res- urrection gives me a new life in you, both now and forever. Please forgive me of sins and take control of my life. I give myself to you completely. Show me your love and show me the right way to live. Amen.
After your prayer, be sure to talk to another Christian and become part of a local church to help you grow in your new relationship with Christ. Welker’s Crossroads welcomes you!
