The Roman Road

The Bible lays out for us a picture of the natural condition of mankind and how we humans can take a first step toward changing our condition by trusting God with our lives now and our eternity. Romans, the New Testament Bible book, gives us a road map to trusting Christ and following Him in obedience. Here is a seven verse series from the Holy Bible that is often called “The Roman Road.”

Below is that series and a link to BibleGateway for each verse:

For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. [Romans 1:20-21 (ESV)]

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, [3:23 (ESV)]

but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. [5:8 (ESV)]

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. [6:23 (ESV)]

 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. [10:9-10 (ESV)]

For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” [10:13 (ESV)]

For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen. [11:36 (ESV)]
