Biblical, Practical & Evangelical
There’s an age-old evangelism tool that’s been used by missions and evangelical organizations for decades. Perhaps, many of you reading this post have heard of or used an evangelism method called “The Romans Road”?
Now there are quite a few versions of The Romans Road. But the basic concept is using the book of Romans, or key passages from the book of Romans, to accurately and adequately explain or present the Gospel message.
When God led Paul to write the book of Romans, it’s clear from the content that an all-encompassing blueprint for Salvation (Creation to the Cross, and the Cross to Eternity) was to be included.
This was obviously vital to the Roman church at that time.
In the book of Romans we find answers to key questions about salvation:
- Who needs salvation.
- Why we need salvation.
- How God provides salvation.
- How we receive salvation.
- The results of salvation.
Hence the reason for title, “The Romans Road to Christ“, “The Romans Road to Salvation” or simply stated “The Romans Road“.
Before we jump into the book of Romans and walk down this Romans Road (pun intended), I want to include a caveat:
“The Romans Road is not the only evangelistic tool or method out there.”
If there is a method or set of verses that you prefer and that is working for you; then please continue to share the Gospel in the way that works best for you.
That being said, there are numerous success stories of Christians using The Romans Road to explain the Good News of salvation, and in turn lead many people to Jesus Christ. But the choice is up to you.
Like I stated above, there are a variety of versions of The Romans Road. However, most of them, at minimum, carry these 4 steps or what I refer to as “The Basics”:
- All Have Sinned from Romans 3:23.
- Christ Died for Our Sin from Romans 5:8.
- Penalty for Sin, Gift of Life from Romans 6:23.
- Confess, Believe & Be Saved from Romans 10:9.
A Little More
For us, over the next few posts, we’re going to unpack a fuller, more inclusive version of The Romans Road. This version carries 6 components instead of the basic 4. We’ll be looking at the following:
- “The Beginning” from Romans 1:20.
- “The Need” from Romans 3:23.
- “The Solution” from Romans 5:8.
- “The Options” from Romans 6:23.
- “The Appeal” from Romans 10:9.
- “The End” from Romans 11:36.
