If yesterday’s message left you wanting to close the door of sin in your life— that’s really good. If it left you wanting to put out the welcome mat for God’s presence at the door of your heart— that’s great. If it left you aching to share what Jesus did on the cross with someone you know— that’s tremendous.
Here’s a tool called the “Roman Road” to help you do that. It’s just a road map, really, through the pages of Romans that can keep you focused as you talk through the amazing gift of salvation with someone who needs to hear it. Print it out and keep it handy, jot it down in the back of your Bible, put it in your smartphone, or memorize it completely. But, whatever you do, be prepared to testify about how this journey has changed your life and get ready to see it transform someone else’s.
- Romans 3:23
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
- Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
- Romans 5:8
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
- Romans 10:9-10
That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
