Welcome to the final Romans Road post. We have come so far! Today I am going to share a few final verses with you, give you some homework, and a little food for thought.
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." - Ephesians 2:8-9
These two verses aren’t always considered part of the Romans Road, but they go hand in hand with the Road.
We are saved by faith. We believe that Jesus Christ died and then rose from the grave three days later. That’s what I have been telling you throughout this verse series. We didn’t do anything to be saved. What could we do to make up for sinning against a perfectly holy God? Ephesians 2:8-9 tells us that we can’t be saved through works. It has to be through faith. We have to believe that what God’s word says is true, and then tell God that.
Now, I gave you the food for thought so it’s time for the homework. I didn’t give you all of the verses in the Romans Road, because that would take us several more months to get through. I want you to look up the rest of the Romans Road and read through it. If you have any questions about salvation, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can talk with you.
