The Roman Road of Salvation — bible study outline

By


THE ROMAN ROAD OF SALVATION

Verses to use to lead someone to Christ

1. THE BIBLE SAYS ALL HAVE SINNED
Romans 3:23   For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

- A person needs to have the conviction that they have sinned and are lost without Christ. This is the work of the Holy Spirit as you share God’s Word with people.

2. THE BIBLE SAYS SIN CARRIES THE PENALTY OF DEATH

Romans 6:23   For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord

-Explain to people that sin has a payday and that the payday is death.

3. THE BIBLE SAYS ETERNAL LIFE IS GOD’S GIFT THROUGH JESUS CHRIST

Romans 6:23   For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord

-Stress to people that salvation is God’s gift. It cannot be earned because it has already been purchased. It is to be
recieved in humility and faith.

4. THE BIBLE SAYS CHRIST DIED FOR SINNERS BECAUSE OF GOD’S LOVE
Romans 5:8   But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

-We do not need to do anything to convince God to save us or love us. He has already demonstrated this to us and made the gift possible for us to receive.

5. THE BIBLE SAYS WE MUST CALL UPON THE LORD TO BE SAVED
Romans 10:13   For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

- Just as a drowning man cries out for help to be rescued, so must we call to the Lord to save us. He stands ready to do so as soon as we ask.

6. THE BIBLE SAYS WE MUST CONFESS AND BELEIVE IN JESUS AND HIS RESURRECTION

Romans 10:9   That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Romans 10:10   For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto
salvation.

-To confess means you agree with what God says about who Jesus is and what Jesus has done for you. To believe means you entrust all that your life to Jesus.

QUESTION — Are you ready to confess that Jesus is Lord, that he died for you and that God raised him from the dead? Will you call upon him as the Lord who is alive and ready to save you?

This can be done through prayer by praying something like this:

"Dear God, I know that I am a sinner. I agree with you that death is the payday I should receive for the life I have lived. I thank you that you love me as a sinner and sent Christ to die for me. By an act of my will and in faith, I now call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Dear Jesus save me from my sins. I confess with my mouth that you are Lord of my life. I believe in my heart that God raised you from the dead. By faith, I now receive the gift of eternal life from you. Thank you Lord Jesus for saving me. Amen!"
 

If you prayed for Jesus to save you, tell another Christian about it. Begin to read the Bible starting with the four Gospels in the New Testament. Find a good Christian Church to get involved in. And begin praying by sharing your heart with God. Also, talk to a pastor about being baptized and how to grow as a new Christian.
