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 Fifth segment, Step Five , 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 5 – Romans 10:9-10 – ‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.’
This is probably the most vital step, followed of course by the recognition of having sinned and needing to be forgiven. This step requires all travelers down the Romans Road to confess that Jesus is their Lord and Savior and that they believed He was raised from the dead. Confessing this, is as the rest of the scripture says the way to salvation. In doing this step, you’re also acknowledging that you are your life is forfeit and that you are taking on Christ likeness, meaning that you know you weren’t living your life right, and that has to change.
Practical Witnessing Tip – If you’ve made it to this stage they are probably already at a stage where they understand that they have lived a life of sin and that Jesus is the only way out of that sin. It can also be the hardest step, sometimes people require a demonstration of power before they will believe, but that’s okay. Our God is God who likes to show himself. He likes to prove to us that he is real and living. This is a great time to ask Him for a word of knowledge, pray for a healing, or just ask for the holy spirit to touch them and invite God to reveal himself. Don’t worry, He Will. He’s got your back!!
