Thank you for taking the time to visit our site. We pray this resource can be a tool you can use to lead your flock down the road to righteousness no matter their age. As an AnchorMAN, I Chris Treborn wanted to share the good news of Jesus with my family, especially my young children.
At first this was a hip-hop project of a Gospel message & Rap lyrics. Although these lyrics are scripture heavy, the words are simple enough to memorize especially with the beat.
My plan slowly faded and God took control. It turned into a site and a resource. It turned into a leader’s guide to help people like you understand the scriptures found in the book of Romans, and some key words that helped define each step. I even researched illustrations for us to share with our kids to help them relate to the message here.
The more I share The Romans Road To Salvation, the bigger the vision becomes. I am currently finishing up the recording of the Soundtrack to this project, and I pray we can help launch a discussion with your family, a small group, a bible study, or even a sermon series. Only God knows the limit to what TRRTS can do for you and your flock, your family, your community.
With your help, we can do the great commission and go and make disciples. And not only that, but we can teach these simple truths that will help lay the foundation and provide a road map for their road to righteousness. Of course there is only One Way. Through Jesus Christ. So let’s unite in the Holy Spirit and go forth.
We have been called to be AnchorMEN. Men and spiritual leaders anchored into Christ as our solid rock. We are breaking the chains of disconnected generations and connecting to the cornerstone.
Let’s do what AnchorMEN do, and share the Good News.In Jesus’ name! A-MEN!!!
STEP I. FALLEN
The first step on the Romans Road to Salvation is Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” We have all sinned. We have all done things that are displeasing to God. There is no one who is innocent. Romans 3:10-18 gives a detailed picture of what sin looks like in our lives. Keywords: Sin, Fallen, Short, Standard.
STEP II. DEATH
The second step on the Romans Road to Salvation, Romans 6:23, teaches us about the consequences of sin –“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” The punishment that we have earned for our sins is death. Not just physical death, but eternal death! Keywords: Debt, Wages, Death, Eternal.
STEP III. GIFT
The third step on the Romans Road to Salvation picks up where Romans 6:23 left off, “but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 5:8 declares, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Jesus Christ died for us! Jesus’ death paid for the price of our sins. Jesus’ resurrection proves that God accepted Jesus’ death as the payment for our sins. Keywords: Gift, Life, Love, Paid.
STEP IV. CALL
The fourth step on the Romans Road to Salvation is Romans 10:9, “that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Because of Jesus’ death on our behalf, all we have to do is believe in Him, trusting His death as the payment for our sins – and we will be saved! Romans 10:13 says it again, “for everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Jesus died to pay the penalty for our sins and rescue us from eternal death. Salvation, the forgiveness of sins, is available to anyone who will trust in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Keywords: Call, Confess, Believe, Rescued, Saved.
STEP V. JUSTICE
The final aspect of the Romans Road to Salvation is the result of salvation. Romans 5:1 has this wonderful message, “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Through Jesus Christ we can have a relationship of peace with God. Romans 8:1 teaches us, “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” Because of Jesus’ death on our behalf, we will never be condemned for our sins. Keywords: Justified, Faith, Peace, Relationship, In Christ, Separation.
Finally, we have this precious promise of God from Romans 8:38-39, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Would you like to follow the Romans Road to Salvation? If so, here is an example of a prayer you can pray to God. Saying this prayer is a way to declare to God that you are relying on Jesus Christ for your salvation. The words themselves will not save you. Only faith in Jesus Christ can provide salvation!“God, I know that I have sinned against you and am deserving of punishment. But Jesus Christ took the punishment that I deserve so that through faith in Him I could be forgiven. With your help, I place my trust in You for salvation. Thank You for Your wonderful grace and forgiveness – the gift of eternal life! Amen!”
