Recently, in response to a survey I sent, someone asked me to explain the Romans Road. I know that many of you are familiar with the Romans Road to Salvation, but there may be many others that have never heard of it. So, I'm sending the explanation that I give to everyone. If you have any questions about a specific subject, ask. I'll be honored to answer them if I am able. If I'm not able, I don't mind passing it along to someone else who possibly can.
The Roman Road to Salvation:
The Romans Road to salvation is one way of explaining the good news of salvation using only verses from the Book of Romans. It is a simple but powerful method of explaining why we need salvation, how God provided salvation, how we can receive salvation, and what are the results of salvation. And it allows a person to learn the plan of salvation through just one book of the Bible.
That makes it easy for a person to learn how to share the Gospel. Depending on who you are learning it from there are 4-6 verses, all in Romans, that give the outline you have to learn to share the Gospel. There are some variations plus there are other verses in Romans that expand on the basic concepts.
This is the outline:
Romans 5:1 and/or Romans 8:1.
If you will ask me, I will give you a Scripture booklet that we use in the truckstop ministry that has The Gospel of John and the Letter to the Romans in it. It has instructions that take you step by step through the Roman Road and then continues in John. After the verses in Romans 10, it goes on to John 1:12, then to John 3:16-17 and so on to fill out a Gospel presentation.
I get these free from a ministry/church down south of Canton, near the community of Phalba. If you will use them, I'll provide as many as you can use. In the back of the Scripture booklet, it has a page titled, "Five Things God Wants You to Know" and another page titled, "Five Ways to Make The Most Of Your Life After You Have Become A Christian."
That's the Romans Road in a nutshell. Ask me to show you one. I'll give it to you. I've got a lot of other tracts that I use to leave with people I meet that explain the Gospel in different ways.
There is no one right way to share the Gospel. There is only one Gospel but many ways to present and explain it to someone. I would love to teach you how to do it, if you want to learn and put it into practice. You can learn how to use just John, chapter 3 to do it. Then there's no turning a bunch of pages to distract you or the person you are talking to. Let me know how I can help.
If anyone has a question, please leave a comment or two (if you have more than one) and I'll do my best.
