Roman's Road to Salvation
21 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. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory ofthe immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
9 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. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.
“Speak to the entire assembly of Israel and say to them: ‘Be holy because I, the LORD your God, am holy.
But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment,
Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
1 PETER 2:24
“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on
him, and by his wounds we are healed.
1 PETER 3:18
For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit.
2 Corinthians 5:21
God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.
Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.
Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.
They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.”
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind
by which we must be saved.”
I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.
Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon.
1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool."
2 Corinthians 6:2
For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.”
I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.
1 John 5:12-13
Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.
The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.
Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
2 Timothy 1:12
That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet this is no cause for shame, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until
