†The Roman Road
Ever felt like you got hit by a truck? That's me! I painted my entire room (including ceiling) yesterday and I feel about ready to die... The gloomy weather out here isn't helping either... Anyway I just wanted to write because in all my babbling last week I forgot to put in any kind of plan for salvation. The easiest one to follow is what we call "the Roman Road", it's a set of verses in the book of Romans (in the Bible) that spells out why we need salvation and how to get it. So here it is for you.
Just in case you can't get your hands on a bible I'm going to write out the verses for you, but it's always best to check your facts against the actual scriptures (Bible, otherwise known as the Word of God)
Romans 3:23 (what we are)
"for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God"
Romans 6:23a (why that means we need help)
"For the wages of sin is death..."
Romans 6:23b (how God can help)
"... but the gift of God is eternal life."
Romans 5:8 (the plan for help)
"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
Romans 8:9-10 (how we should live when we believe in Jesus)
"You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ. But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness."
The 'a' and 'b' just mean before the comma and after the comma... it's two halves of the same verse.
