Millions have walked down this simple road to find Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour. This Old Roman's Road is found in the Holy Bible. (The Book of Romans was written to lead you to Salvation.) If you will walk it with me, you too can be sure of Heaven. Believe and obey the signs along this road and you will gain Heaven. Won't you come with me? You have nothing to loose but your sins.
Jesus said, For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (Mark 8:36-37)
Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."
Please don't misunderstand. You might be a very fine person, you might even be very religious, but when a pure, sinless and holy God looks at us, He sees a sinner. God's first sign to you says WRONG WAY. God said through the prophet Isaiah, "Your ways are NOT my ways." As hard as it is to tell you, and as difficult as it might be to believe, you are a sinner headed the wrong way! Jesus said, those that aren't saved are on the broad road that leadeth to destruction. In other words, there is Eternal danger (just) ahead. This leads to the second sign...
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Look at those first few words for a moment. Wages of (your) sin. Your sin will bring you a wage or payment. That payment is a severe payment. DEATH! Jesus talked about this death. HE called it damnation (John 5:29); outer darkness (Matthew 25:30) and a place of unquenchable fire and Hell fire. (Mark 9:42-47) Saint John Referred to this as "the lake of fire." (Revelation 20:15)
The Bible says in Hebrews 9:27, "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment." Judgment of your sins and then ETERNAL DEATH a grim future for a lost sinner.
The next sign on this road points towards heaven and says ONE WAY. The only link between a sinner and a holy God is the God-man, the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus said in John 14:6, "I AM THE WAY, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." Saint Paul
declared in Romans 10:4, "For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness, to every one that believeth."
Payment in full was made for all your sins, when Jesus hung on Calvary's cross and shed his precious blood. His death, burial and glorious resurrection can save your soul forever, providing hope for a lost sinner.
The last sign on this Old Roman's Road says "STOP!" Please, stop and realize what God has done for you. Even though you are a sinner; even though you deserve Hell for eternity, Romans 5:8 "But God commendeth (directed) his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." WHAT A WONDERFUL GIFT TO YOU FROM A LOVING GOD. "The gift of God, (which is) Eternal Life, through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23b
You can't pay for it or earn it. If you could, God wouldn't have called it a gift?! This gift can ONLY be received or rejected. By accepting Jesus as your personal Saviour, you receive the gift of God.
"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name." (John 1:12)
Have you received God's gift of Eternal Life, Friend? If not, what better time to do it then right now.
While you are on this Old Roman's Road with me, simply bow your head to Jesus and PRAY this prayer with ALL YOUR HEART?
Dear JESUS, I admit that I am a sinner on my way to Hell. I'm sorry for sinning against You. I ask You to forgive me and save me. Please, take me to Heaven when I die. By faith, I now receive You as my personal Saviour, fully trusting the blood You shed on the cross as payment for all my sins.
Thank You, LORD JESUS, for saving me. Amen.
Romans 10:9 "That if thou shalt confess with mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."
Romans 10:13 "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord SHALL be saved."
"These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may Know that ye have eternal life" (I John 5:13)
Romans 9:33b "Whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed."
