I received this letter concerning the Roman Road and felt that others
might not be familiar with this term.. Here is Jackieís letter:
ďNow you have given me a puzzle. I don't understand , what is the Roman
Road to Salvation.? Is it just a Baptist thing? I've been a Christian a
long time and I'm not familiar with this saying.
Any way I pray for you and I would sorely miss you if you were not on
here. So take care of your self for you are such a blessing to a great
many. I learn so much from you, even though I'm Pentecostal. I love the
scriptures you put out, and all the wonderful stories of your every day
God bless you Jim Keeling and one day soon we will no longer have these
bodies with all this pain. For when we meet our Jesus face to face it will
all be gone. And as you so rightly say: ďWELL GLORY"
Your sister in Christ,
First let me say that the Roman Road isnít just for Baptist but is a great
set of verses to aid in leading the lost to Jesus Christ.. I also like to
use my personal salvations experience and what Jesus has done in my life..
The rest, of coarse is up to the leading and drawing of the Holy Spirit.
I have marked where to go to next, in my Bible beside each verse so as not
to confuse the lost person I am witnessing to..
Romans 1: 16-- 3:23--
3:10-- 5:12-- 5:8, 9-- 6:23--10:13-- I added this, my
favorite verse, next; Revelations 3:20 --- Romans
10:9, 10 and perhaps the most famous verse last.
Here is something I have found to help you be more effective in your
leading a lost person to Christ.. And that is, let them read these verses
with you. If you donít have two Bibles then sit beside them and ask them
to read with you and point with your finger to each word as you read..
There is something about reading the Bible yourself which stirs the Holy
Spirit and brings Godís Holy Word to life in a persons heart and mind..
Romans 1: 16
 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:
for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to
the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
 For all have sinned, and come short of the
glory of God;
 As it is written, There is none righteous, no,
 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the
world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all
Romans 5: 8, 9
 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that,
while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved
from wrath through him.
Romans 6: 23
 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of
God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 10: 13
 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the
Lord shall be saved.
Revelations 3: 20
 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any
man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup
with him, and he with me.
Romans 10: 9, 10
 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.
John 3: 16
 For God so loved the world, that he gave his
only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but
have everlasting life.
Here are a
few more tips in leading a lost one to Christ. This is from my own
Pray before you go and
ask the Holy Spirit to guide you and give you a loving and proper
attitude. This is so important. I have led people that I didnít really
care for to the Lord. But I never would have if the Holy Spirit hadnít
given me the correct mind set..
best thing here is to pick a quit place where you wonít be interrupted.
Remember that Satan hates you and even more so for trying to steal a soul
from him by leading them to Jesus, and is going to stop you if he can. I
have had loud TVís, phone calls, babyís crying, dogs howling, kids
fighting, neighbors drop in, etc. Iíll witness anywhere I can but I try
and control my surroundings if at all possible.
You cannot help to save anyone
UNLESS they first realize that they are lost. My question to them here
is; If you were to die in the next few minutes, where would you spend
eternity? In heaven or Hell?
Ask them to give you a truthful answer here because the answer to this
question is vital and the decision they are about to make is the very most
important one they will ever make in this life time. And let them know
that your not trying to belittle them or be a smart aleck but that you
love them and are concerned about their eternal destiny.
The next few minutes
after sharing the Roman Road is crucial. Look them strait in the eye, and
ask them if they would like to accept Jesus as their personal Saviour.
Explain to them that they can be saved right where they are as some people
think they have to be in a church. After all, the thief was saved while
hanging next to Jesus on the cross.. I have lead some to Jesus in schools,
colleges, jails, on the job sites, in campgrounds, while they were in the
hospital bed, and one fellow while we were driving to work. Had to stop
alongside the road and get my Bible out of my lunch box. I just have to
smile as I remember him sitting there in the truck, crying and asking God
to forgive him of his sins and accepting Jesus as his Saviour.. We were
late for work and when the foreman ask us what happened, He just yelled
out; ďJesus saved my soul and Iím going to go to Heaven.Ē (smile)
Tell them they need to tell someone that Jesus has saved them.. I usually
reread Romans 1: 16...
Then let them read Ephesians 2: 8, 10
and explain that this first work they should do for the Lord in to be
baptized into a local church to show the world that they have been saved
and born again and are now a child of God...
Ephesians 2: 8, 10
 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and
that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works,
which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Lastly, I explain the need to begin reading their Bible and I suggest
to start with the Book of John. This isnít necessary but I have made it a
habit to go and purchase a King James Bible as a gift for those I have
lead to the Lord to help get them started on their Christian walk..
Now that you have been armed with this information, what are you going to
do with it? Keep your salvation to yourself or share it with others? And
here is something for you to ponder over. Just where would you be if the
person who lead you to the foot of the cross had kept this knowledge of
Jesus and His Saving Grace to themselves?
Straight to Hell!!!
This is blunt but true... So let your light shine and share the love of
Jesus with all who cross your path..
this person that, you can be saved right there where you are. If you are
sincere and truly mean it why not pray this simple prayer with me.
The Sinner's Prayer
Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and I am sorry for my sins and I
ask for your forgiveness. I believe in your Son, Jesus, that He was born
of a virgin, suffered and died for my sins, but arose from the grave and
is alive and with you in Heaven right now. I accept you Jesus as my Lord
and Saviour and ask that you save my soul. Seal me with the Holy Spirit.
For I pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen..
And this my dear
friends is how to be a soul winner using the Roman Road for the cause of
May God Bless You as you witness for Him, is my Prayer! And all of God's
children say; Amen!
