The Roman road to salvation

‘…the gift of God is eternal life…’ Romans 6:23

Does your life feel empty? Do you long for peace, the knowledge that your sins are forgiven and the assurance of a home in heaven? Today place your trust in Christ and make Him Lord of your life. ‘How?’ you ask. Take the Roman road to salvation (found in the letter to the Romans.)

Step 1: ‘…we’ve compiled this long and sorry record as sinners…and proved that we are utterly incapable of living the glorious lives God wills for us…’ (Romans 3:23 TM). Face it, we’re all sinners to the core, desperately in need of a Saviour.

Step 2: ‘Work hard to sin your whole life and your pension is death. But God’s gift is real life, eternal life, delivered by Jesus’ (Romans 6:23 paraphrase). The gospel means ‘good news’ and here’s the good news: your sins (all of them) have been paid for at the cross.

Step 3: ‘God put his love on the line for us by offering his Son in sacrificial death while we were of no use whatever to him’ (Romans 5:8 TM). You can’t earn salvation by good works or deserve it by having good character. God offers it to you freely. All you have to do is receive it by faith.

Step 4: ‘You’re not ‘doing’ anything; you’re simply calling out to God, trusting Him to do it for you. That’s salvation…say it, right out loud: “God has set everything right between him and me!”‘ (Romans 10:9-12 TM). Now pray these words: ‘Lord, 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. http://www.ucb.co.uk/word_for_today
