It just takes 2 minutes …
I first heard about the “Roman Road” when I was dating my husband John.
Supposedly it’s this “path” of five Scripture verses through the book of Romans that you can use to explain the gift of salvation and lead someone to Christ.
Over the years, I’ve read Romans dozens and dozens of times and each of my Bibles now highlights all the key verses. But, yesterday morning I decided to get prepared–really prepared.
I found the Roman Road, and I wrote the first verse, Romans 3:23 in the inside cover of my Bible. This verse was already underlined, but to make it easy to remember what was next, I wrote Romans 6:23 in the margin (right next to Romans 3:23). At Romans 6:23, I wrote Romans 5:8 in the margin. (Are you getting the picture?) At Romans 5:8 I wrote Romans 10:9-10. And at Romans 10:9-10, I drew an arrow down to Romans 10:13. How easy was that?
At Romans 10:13 I also wrote a summary of what all these passages mean. There just a few words that will help me explain salvation to someone God will bring in my path.
So now I’m prepared. It seriously only took 2 minutes. But for someone that God leads into my life these verses could transform eternity!
So here is a summary of the verses, and a list of my key words I added to the margin of the last one. And, if I may be so bold, maybe you should prepare to. What are you waiting for?
–ASK FOR GRACE
–TURN OVER YOUR LIFE
–LET JESUS BE LORD
