Step Two on the Roman Road

Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God
is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.   
In step one, we are called to acknowledge that we are all sinners. That by ourselves none of us is good enough to save ourselves.
We all know that there are rewards and or consequences for our actions.
If we put in a good days or weeks work we get a paycheck .
If we get caught speeding down the road in our car we get a ticket.


Step One on the Roman Road

Romans 3:23

“For ALL have sinned and fall short
of the glory of God.”
Every journey starts with a single step. Here in Romans 3:23 we find our first step on our path to salvation.
 Like always the first step is never easy.
How often have we heard or thought one of the following?
“I’m a good person, I don’t lie or steal, I’ve never killed anyone. I keep the ten commandments. I donate my time and
money to help those less fortunate.
“God is good, He loves us all, I’m sure when he sees how hard I worked and tried, there is no way I’ll be sent to Hell”
“I know soo many people who are no where near as good as I am.”
“I’m good enough.”



“True repentance is a turning from sin
–a conscious, deliberate decision to leave sin behind
–and a conscious turning to God with a commitment to follow His will for our lives.
It is a change of direction, an alteration of attitudes,and a yielding of the will.”
 Billy Graham,
The Secret of Happiness (New York: Doubleday,  1955)
