One of the great tools of evangelism is referred to as the Romans Road. The reason for the name is simple: it gives God’s simple plan of salvation through a series of Bible verses, all found in the book of Romans. It tells us: Who needs Salvation, Why we Need salvation. and How we Get salvation.
Now I realize that for many of you this is nothing new, but there may be others who perhaps have never heard of it, forgotten it, or have need of it. (That is, have never come to faith in Jesus.)
The Bible tells us that we are all sinners and as a result of our sin we are separated from God.
“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:” (Romans 3:10)
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23)
Yes, we have all sinned and sin has consequences.
The Bible even tells the result of sin.
"Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” (Romans 5:12)
Yes, we will all die physically, but it is more than just that, here it is referring to eternal death, eternal separation from God. But there is good news.
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)
Yes, God made a way for us.
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
And now, because Jesus paid our sin debt we can be restored, made right with God!
“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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10)
The really great thing is, this is for everybody! Anybody can be saved!
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”(Romans 10:13)
If you have never confessed your sin and called upon Him then why not do it today?
