The Romans Road, Pt. 1

I am going to be away from the computer this week, so I am posting a series on what is commonly called “the Romans Road” to salvation.  It is a series of verses from the book of Romans dealing with sin, guilt, and, most importantly, salvation through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ.  As always, thank you for reading and feel free to comment.

Who Needs Salvation?

As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God

Romans 3:10-12, 23

The simplest answer to the question “who needs to be saved” is this: everyone.  Every single one of us is in desperate need of a Saviour.  The great issue of life is this: sin and righteousness.  Sin is anything that goes against the laws of God.  Righteousness is the opposite of sin.  As it tells us in verse 23, “…all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”  All of us have sinned.  None of us are perfect.  God’s righteousness demands absolute perfection and we all miss that mark by a long shot.

We are all, in our natural state, separated from God.  We are all sinners by birth and sinners by choice.  We all need a Saviour.  The Bible could not be more clear on this matter.  I believe that the more important something is, the easier God makes it to understand.  Over and over again we are told that there is “none righteous.”  And, if we somehow don’t understand that, God immediately repeats Himself – “no, not one.”

We are all sinner and we all need a Saviour.  Understanding this is the first step toward accepting that Saviour!
