The Book of Romans was written by the Apostle Paul. Paul was not one of the first disciples who walked with Jesus in person. But Paul was a man of education and very religious in the Jewish faith. He did not believe that Jesus was the promised Messiah and he was vicious in his persecution of Believers, throwing them in jail, having them beaten and sometimes even killed!
God knew that Paul was essentially a good man so, on the road to the City of Damascus where he was hunting for Believers, God blinded him with a powerful beam of holy light and Jesus’ own voice asked him, “Why are you persecuting Me?” Acts chapter 9.
From that time on Paul traveled from city to city preaching and leading people to eternal salvation through Jesus Christ. The Book of Romans was written by Paul to the Christian Church in Rome, the Capital city of the Roman Empire. Following are some of the most powerful verses which will help anyone to become a Born Again Christian:
- Romans 3:23 “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” All of us!
- No one can ever earn their way to salvation.
- Romans 6:23a “The wages of sin is death.”
- Everyone actually deserves eternal Death because we commit sins.
- Romans 6:23b “But the Gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
- You can’t earn this gift, but you must reach out for it.
- Romans 5:8 “God offers His Love for us, while we were sinners, Christ DIED for us.”
- Jesus suffered the horrible punishment that we deserve for our sins.
- Romans 10 13 “Anyone who will call on the Name of the Lord (and ask for forgiveness) will be saved.”
- Anybody, no matter who you are or what you have done.
- Romans 10:9-10 “If you speak with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God brought life into Jesus again, you will be saved, Because with the heart a person believes, resulting in his doing good, and with the mouth he declares it which brings salvation.”
- Revelation 3:20 Jesus says, “Look here, I am standing at your door and knocking If anyone hears My Voice and opens the door (to your heart) I will come in to you.”
- John 3:16 “Except a person is Born Again he cannot see the Kingdom of God…. For God so loved (the people of) the World that He gave His only Son that anyone who believes in Him will not have eternal death but will have Everlasting Life!”
