REPENTANCE

 

DEFINITION:  Repentance is the act of expressing sorrow for something wrong you have done.  Biblically, it is a change that occurs in the mind and heart, permeates the soul and spirit, and results in changes in outward actions and spiritual direction. Conversion is a similar word, meaning to turn from the wrong way to the right way, from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 11:21, 26:18).

 

FACTS ABOUT REPENTANCE:

Repentance is not just an emotional response.  Some people associate repentance with emotions like shedding tears and feeling sorry for wrong actions and thoughts. Repentance is not an emotion. It is a decision. Emotion sometimes accompanies repentance, but it is possible for a person to feel great emotion and shed many tears and yet never truly repent.

SALVATION

                   

DEFINITION:  Biblically, salvation means the act of snatching others by force from serious spiritual danger, saving a person from spiritual death, and delivering one from the penalty, peril, and power of sin.

 

FACTS ABOUT SALVATION:

Salvation implies that you are delivered from something to something.  You are saved from sin and reconciled with God.  You are saved from the Kingdom of Satan and born-again in the Kingdom of God.  You are delivered from spiritual death to spiritual life.

 

Salvation is a gift.  There is nothing you can do to earn it (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9).

God’s goodness leads you to repentance.  Romans 2:4 indicates that it is God’s goodness–not His judgment–that draws you to repent.

ASSURANCE

 

DEFINTION:  Assurance means to be convinced of something, to have absolute faith in it.  Biblically, a lack of assurance causes one to doubt their salvation as well as other spiritual works God has done in their lives.

 

FACTS ABOUT ASSURANCE:

Lack of assurance is doubt and is generated by Satan.  He will even try to make you think you have committed the unpardonable sin, but God’s Word says that if you come to Him, you will be received  (John 6:37).  You also can be assured that:

-Jesus paid your entire sin debt and obtained your full pardon:  Colossians 2:13-14.

-Your pardon is based on God’s grace, which always exceeds your transgressions: Ephesians 1:7; Romans 5:20.

LESSON ONE: SIN

Man's greatest problem is sin: In Romans 3:23 we read, "All have sinned and fallen short of

the glory of God." The Bible says all people are sinners and sin separates them from God.

The end results of sin: "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in

Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 6:23). The end result of sin is spiritual death separation from

God.

The Roman Road provides a detailed map for our salvation and eternal fellowship with God. Just follow these steps: 
 
1. We must acknowledge God as the Creator of everything, accepting our humble position in God's created order and purpose. Romans 1:20-21
 
"For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened." 
 
2.We must realize that we are sinners and that we need forgiveness. None of us are worthy under God’s standards. Romans 3:23
