Roman Road

While doing an overview of Romans I typed the following chart known as the Roman Road to Salvation. It is something that I have not taught for several years, at least, not step by step. It was very refreshing to look the verses up and type them out. I thought it would be good for everyone to review it for their own understanding and know it so they can explain our salvation to today’s culture. The way of salvation is both simple and very deep with the richness of God’s wisdom and power.

The Roman Road: The Way of Salvation

Death came to all men
“Sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned”

All men have sinned
“There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

No one will be declared righteous by obedience
“Therefore, no one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law.”

Christ died for us
“God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Christ died for our sins;Christ rose because we were justified
“He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.”

Wages of sin is death; God’s gift is eternal life
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Righteousness from God through faith
“Now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify.”

Gospel is the power of God for everyone who believes
“I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God, for the salvation of everyone who believes . . . For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last.”

Confess Jesus and be saved
“The word of faith we are proclaiming: That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in you r heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be save.”

Sin shall not be your master
“Sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace.”

All things work together for good of those who love God

“We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him . . . if God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all – how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?
