How To Be Saved

Sep 7, 2023

‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved.’Acts 16:31 NKJV

Have you heard of the ‘Romans Road’ to salvation? It’s based on four simple steps found in the book of Romans.

Step one: ‘For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.’ (Romans 3:23 NKJV) We are all sinners to the core, desperately in need of a Saviour.

Step two: ‘For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life.’ (Romans 6:23 NKJV) The gospel means ‘good news’. And here it is: all of your sins from your birth to your death have been paid for by Jesus.

Step three: ‘While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.’ (Romans 5:8 NKJV) You can’t earn salvation by good works; God gives it to you freely. All you have to do is receive it by faith.

Step four: ‘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. For… “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”’ (Romans 10:9–13 NKJV).

Does your life feel empty? Do you long for peace; to know your sins are forgiven and you have an eternal home in Heaven? Today, place your trust in Jesus, and make Him Lord of your life. Just pray these words: ‘Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to You. Come into my heart. By faith I receive the gift of eternal life. Thank you for setting everything right between you and Me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.’
