The Romans Road to Salvation

 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.   Romans 3:23

This includes you:

10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Romans 3:10-12

“But,” you say, “what about all the good I’ve done?   Surely it will outweigh all my sins. . .”

But we are all as an unclean thing, and ALL our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. Isaiah 64:6

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.   Rom 6:23

Not only can’t your good works save you from your sins, your sins condemn you to eternal death in Hell
“Whoa,” you say, “enough bad news!   Don’t you have any thing have any thing good to say?”

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.   Romans 5:8

The good news is that God loves you, and He in no way wants you to burn in Hell:   The Lord . . . is longsuffering to us-ward [patient toward us], not willing that any should perish [in Hell], but that all should come to repentance. II Peter 3:9

“Okay, what should I do?”

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God
hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.   Rom 10:9

and

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.   Rom 10:13

Jesus Christ lived a perfect life, without any sin (. . .and in him is no sin.   I John 3:5), and he suffered and died on the cross for your sins.   He, being the very Son of God, was the perfect sacrifice before God, and anyone who repents (gives up) of their sins and trusts Him as their Lord and Saviour He gives eternal life.   (That means you go to Heaven and not Hell.)   The ONLY way to eternal life is Jesus Christ.

Neither is there salvation in any other [besides Jesus Christ]: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.   Acts 4:12

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.   John 14:6
