The Roamin' Road

Roam (rom): to walk or travel (over or through) without purpose or direction; wander. This is the definition for the word roam as defined by Webster’s Dictionary. In life, many people are traveling down the Roamin’ Road. They are wandering aimlessly through life without purpose or direction, totally oblivious and without concern when it comes to the matter of where they will spend all of eternity. Some people don’t believe in an eternal state of existence. Some don’t believe in heaven or hell. Some believe heaven is a state of mind. Some believe that being a good person and doing good deeds will get them into heaven. Some believe all people will go to heaven: Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Catholic, etc. Some don’t believe in God. Some believe in a false god. Some don’t believe Jesus is the Savior of the world. So many people are roamin´ on different roads. Many believe they have the correct map and are traveling in the right direction, not realizing they are lost on the way. Others realize they are lost and are looking for the map that will lead them down the right path. We are all travelers journeying down a road which will eventually lead to an eternal destination. The sad and frightening reality is that most people will remain on the Roamin’ Road until they die. Listen to what the Son of God, Jesus Christ, has to say to all travelers, “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14)

Follow the map of Jesus Christ and take the straight and narrow road that leads to life eternal and bypass the broad road to destruction. Buckle your seatbelt and turn the lights on. It may seem a bit bumpy and dark at first, but if you travel the whole road, it will lead you to a most glorious eternal destination. Be sure to read and follow the signs carefully so as to stay on the right course; beware of detours!

The Roman Road

Romans 1:10 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men,…” This 1st sign shows the certainty of God’s judgment upon all people who are ungodly and unrighteous.
Romans 3:10 “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” The 2nd sign shows that we are all unrighteous in God’s eyes. This means God will have to judge all of us since, according to the first sign, God’s wrath is upon all who are ungodly and unrighteous.
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” The 3rd sign shows the universality of sin and guilt. All people are sinners and thus stand guilty before God. Except for the sinless Christ, not one person is exempt from this truth.
Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” The 4th sign shows God’s love for sinful humanity. God could have left us to die in our sins and then sentence us to an eternity in hell; however, He has provided forgiveness through the death of His Son on the cross. That’s love!
Romans 6:23a “For the wages of sin is death.…” The 5th sign shows the payoff for sinning against God. It is both a physical and spiritual death. Spiritual death leads to the second death: an eternity in the lake of fire.
Romans 6:23b “...but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” The 6th sign shows eternal life is a free gift from God. It is not something you can earn by doing good deeds. It is Christ who did the good deed by paying the penalty for your sins when He died on the cross for you and then rose from the dead. Therefore, eternal life only comes through Him.
Romans 5:9 "Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.” The 7th sign shows it is only through Jesus Christ and the blood He shed for you on the cross that can save you from God’s wrath.
Romans 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” The 8th sign shows you what to do to be saved. You must call out to the Lord Jesus. Notice also the certainty of the promise: you “shall be saved”.

The Cross Road

You have come to a cross road my friend. To your left is the Roamin’ Road. The devil is holding out his hand and is offering you independence from God. He is offering you the lusts, pleasures and sins of the world. But he has lied to you. He has not told you that God’s eternal wrath and judgment are also on this road. This is hell’s road.

To your right is the Roman Road. Jesus Christ is holding out his hand and is offering you union and fellowship with God. He is offering you God’s love, mercy, forgiveness and salvation. The One who has sent His Son to die for you has not lied to you. Turn from your sins, and take Jesus’ right hand of fellowship. Confess you are sinner and tell Jesus you want to receive Him as your Lord and Savior. This is the only way you will be saved from God’s wrath and receive eternal life with Him in heaven.

What will you do? Which road will you take? We plead for you, in the name of Jesus, to turn right.
