Welcome to all who are reading my blog...
"The Contented Woman"
and this is in no means the ONLY way to lead someone to Salvation....
The following Scriptures are known as the Roman Road to Salvation. They are Scriptures from the book of Romans which show God's wondrous way of salvation. It is important that we know these Scriptures. It is most important that our children know these Scriptures. It shows them the way to experience salvation through Jesus Christ. It shows them how to lead another person to Christ.
It is so sad that many Christians today do not even know Scriptures that can help lead someone to Christ. When I talk to young people I find that most of them don't even know these Scriptures, and these are young people who have been brought up in homeschooling families. This is unbelievable! Don't let this be the testimony of your children.

I will list the Scriptures for you. Print them out. Go through them with your children. If they have not yet received Christ into their lives as their Lord and Savior, encourage them to do this. If they are already born again, they need to not only know about, but to memorize these Scriptures so they are equipped to lead another person to Jesus.

1. All have sinned
We have all sinned and therefore fall short of God's standard.
Romans 3:10; 3:23; and 5:12

2. There is a penalty for sin.
If we remain in our sin, we will die, but if we repent and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we will have eternal life.
Romans 6:23

3. Christ died for us
Even though we are sinners, God loves us and sent His Son, Jesus Christ to die in our place and take the punishment of sin.
Romans 5:8

4. Call upon the Lord
We must call upon the Lord. God promises that when we call upon the name of the Lord we will be saved. There is no other name through which we can receive salvation.
Romans 10:13

5. We must believe and confess
We must believe in our hearts that Jesus died, was buried, and rose again for our sins (1 Corinthians 15:1-4), but we must also confess out loud with our mouth that He is Lord and Savior.
Romans 10: 9, 10

6. It's a faith walk
We receive God's salvation by faith. When we are saved, we keep walking by faith which grows stronger as we read God's Word every day.
Romans 10:17

If you have never received Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God into your life and been born again, or if your children are not yet born again, here is a prayer to pray:

"Dear Father, I know that I have sinned and deserve the punishment of my sin which is death. But I thank you that you died in my place and took my sin upon yourself as you died upon the cross and shed your precious blood. Please forgive me for my sin and cleanse me with your precious blood. I thank you that you died, were buried, and rose again for me. I ask you to come into my life and to be Lord of my life. I confess right now that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD AND SAVIOR OF MY LIFE. Amen.,"

When you are born again into God's family, you are a new baby in Christ. A baby only grows by drinking milk. The more you feed from God's Word the more you will grow strong in your faith and in your walk with God. Read God's Word daily.

  1. Dear Terri ~ It was lovely that you stopped by at my place and left a sweet comment to let me know you had been by. May the Lord comfort you and give you His continued peace and presence in this journey of grief. Keep your heart and mind fixed on those eternal things. How precious it is to know that our loved ones are HOME and one day...the Lord will call us there, too. In the meantime...may you know His loving care in your by day. Hugs, Camille
