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. Our Seventh and last segment will be called step Seven, and over the previous Fridays we will have been through all the other steps ending with this final 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 7 – Revelations 3:20 – ‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.’
From the moment we were born God has given us opportunities to find Him and come into a relationship, and even if you turn your back on Him now, He will not turn His back on you. He will stand and knock and hope that you open the door to Him. His relationship is really so one sided. We open the door and He gives us the desires of our heart, dines with us, and ensures our place with Him for salvation!
Practical witnessing Tip – If the person you were talking down the Romans road wasn’t open or receptive, don’t force them. Love them! God hasn’t forgotten about them, and He will keep knocking and hoping that they will open the door to the them. But don’t stop witnessing either. God uses us as His tools on this earth. If you aren’t sharing the word with them, or telling them of his love, or of the miracles you’ve seen, there’s a good chance no one else will! Most importantly, be a good representative of Jesus. Don’t tarnish His image with your actions. Your life is a testimony. Don’t be afraid to share it!
“Dear Lord Jesus, I believe You are the Son of God and died to forgive me of my sins. I Know I have sinned. I ask You to forgive me. I turn from my sins and I receive you as my Lord and Savor and Friend. Thank You for saving me from an eternity without your love. I want to live for You now and in eternity Amen.”
