Take a walk with me.

Tonight I would like you to take a stroll with me. We are going to walk down a road together. It is called The Roman Road to Salvation. Well make some stops along the way. Come on, it will be a learning experience.

Stop 1
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Romans 1:20-21
God reveals himself to us through creation. On our path to salvation we must accept God as the creator and the sustainer of life.
Stop 2
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 3:23
All men are sinners. We are born without sin but once we reach the age of accountability we become sinners.
Stop 3
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23
The penalty for sin in eternal death in Hell.
Stop 4
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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:9-10
Salvation is open to anybody. A person receives God's free gift of love and life by placing faith in Jesus Christ. To believe is simply to take God at His word. With our heart (whole believing) we believe that Jesus is God's Son who died for our sin on the cross and arose from the grave to live in us as Savior and Lord. It really is that simple.
Stop 5
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:13
This is our last stop and where we have to take our own path. On our walk we found out about God, death from sin, and how we can be saved. It is up to you now which path you take. If you are ready to accept Jesus as your personal savior and want God in your life, it is your decision. I cannot save you. It is between you and God.
If you are ready just say a prayer like this:
Lord, I come humbly before you. I know that I am a sinner and have not been living my life for you. I accept that your son, Jesus, died upon the cross to pay for my sins. I ask you Lord to forgive me and come into my heart. Amen.
If you have made the decision to become a Christian tonight wonderful. Now go into the bible and learn more. Find a local bible believing church and attend. Let somebody know about your salvation. Join a new believers class and look into getting baptised. You have started upon the most wonderful journey of your life.
If you are not ready to take that next step that is OK also. Join us again and learn more about Jesus and salvation.
God Bless You All.
