Know that if you call on the Name of Jesus, then you will be saved. Saved from death, sin, guilt, hell, and separation from God.

Those who seek will find. Knock and it will be opened to you. God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.

This is a promise fulfilled in Christ. You can and must trust it. Act on it!

Romans Road: Step 5

Confession is a true and accurate statement about self. If we confess Jesus as Lord, then we are admitting that Jesus has authority and the right to rule over our life. It also means we should be willing to live with His will over ours.

Believing in your heart that God raise Jesus from the dead is essential. If you believe God raised Jesus from the dead, then you must first believe that Jesus died for your sins.

If we confess Jesus’ authority over our life and believe in his atonement and resurrection (victory over sin and death), then we will be saved.

When someone dies for another, it means that they have judged the person for whom they died as worthy of the sacrifice. But what makes the sacrifice of Jesus so remarkable was that we are so unworthy.

Scarcely would we die for a good person, but Jesus died for bad people. We who were sinners, were undeserving. But God who is love demonstrated his love towards us because he is love, not because we were worthy of love.

Isn’t it wonderful knowing God loves us even though we didn’t deserve it!?

Romans Road: Step 3

God not only made us, but in the perfect creation He also sustains us. Something bad happened. Because we are separated from God by our sin, we begin to die the moment we sin. We are separated from our source and sustenance of life. ‘Wages’ implies a just and deserving outcome to our sin.

Because we are separated from God, we are separated from life, peace and joy.

But there is good news.

That separation that caused death was overcome when Christ took on human flesh and died for us, uniting us with God. ‘Gift’ means undeserved. We sinned and deserved to die, but God, at great cost, has given us THE free gift of eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Proof of God

What they look for through the telescope, they already see through the microscope. Out there in space, they reason, if there is intelligence, there will be some kind of code. And we will know it is a code if some sort of natural pattern occurs that carries information. Information carrying codes can only be designed by intelligence and therefore, they conclude, it will indicate an intelligent source. If it were seen, they think it would suggest aliens exist. Bright minds of science have rallied to this idea, yet funny enough they have missed the most beautiful hallmark of supernatural intelligence.

No need to look out to space. We have already an amazing code carrying complex designer information, the genetic blueprint of our bodies. Every single cell has it. This library of information found in each of our cells didn’t come about by chance. It demands intelligence to write a code.

You see the Bible tells us that (Heb 11:3) “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”

But of course! Only a God who authored life could account for the amazing way that we are made by information written in a code in our cells.

Yet, they still keep looking for magic Martians out in space, hoping, wishing we’re not alone.

Who was this intelligence?

It’s simple. Everything that begins to exist requires a cause. The universe began to exist. Therefore, the universe requires a cause. This cause had to be timeless, spaceless and immaterial (because the universe is all that is time, space and matter). Moreover, since intelligence is required to author our DNA, a cause that is intelligent is required. So who fits this description perfectly? That’s right, God.

Since God is eternal (timeless), omnipresent (spaceless), Spirit (definitely not material), and intelligent the answer is obviously Him.

Not everything requires a cause, just all things with a beginning. So God Himself does not require a cause, because He had no beginning.
