Witnessing tools are always helpful. on our site we have a page created to help witnessing the Wonderful Ever Present Lord, Redeemer and Friend we have. So over the coming few week we will go trough 7 witnessing steps based on the Roman Road. The Romans road, and a great version of the sinners prayer. We genuinely hope that through these tools, you are equipped and make a difference winning souls for the kingdom.
The only way into Heaven is through Jesus Christ. It’s made very clear and certain in the scriptures. Right along with the admission of sins. As a fundamental of Christian life, and the very beginning of your wonderful relationship, we all understand what’s involved with salvation, but how do you witness to those you know and love without being militant about it?
Take a walk with a loved one, down the Romans road. This is Our Second segment, Step Two, and over the coming Fridays we will go through to Step Seven. There are many wonderful ways to witness, and we hope this series is a blessing and help to many.
At it’s simplest the Romans road is group of bible verses found in Romans that explain the path on how to achieve salvation. It’s a great witnessing tool, and as with most walks, is better done with someone else. Lets go through each of the verses, and explore how we can become more effective in witnessing, without being a “Bible Basher.”
Step 2 – Romans 6:23a – ‘…for the wages of sin are death’
When we’re born into this world we are born into sin nature. We are under it’s rule. And until we accept Jesus into our life, we are subject to it, and had no way out. We are born as employees to sin. Everyday without Christ we outwork sins purposes and whims. Our sin nature and the voice of the enemy tries to compel us to do things that may feel rewarding and fun, but is only being rewarded with a big fat paycheck of eternal separation from Christ. Death. It’s important to note that this death isn’t our physical death, which we all must face, but spiritual. Our eternal life. And while we work under sins law, there’s only one place we can go. And it ain’t heaven.
Practical Witnessing Tip – The best way of approaching this is by letting the person you are witnessing to know that our sin nature, which we were born into, and had no choice about is actively trying to separate us from God. And that if you hadn’t asked God to come into your life, and were to have died, you too would end up in hell. No if’s, buts, or maybes. It’s black and white. This is a great place to share your heart, and let them know that it would hurt you to see them not make a decision for Christ and end up in a place that the bible describes as The Lake Of Fire where all the lost people will be in torment together. This is a great place to also point out that this lake, Hell, was never created for us, but for the judged angels. And that Satan won’t be ruler down there. He too will be judged and punished, and that he is all too aware that he faces eternal torment, and that he wants nothing more than to bring as many down with him as possible to stick it to God, because it is God desire that none of us perish and end up there. It breaks His heart!
John 3 Verse 16: “God so loved”, God made away, for us. But it is our choice to accept it.
