One of the greatest tools to lead someone to the Lord is the Roman Road. These are verses that appear throughout the book of Romans that outline the primary principles of salvation. Explain to the person that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and begin to walk through the following steps.

Preparation: If you know that you are about to reach out to someone spend some time in prayer. Pray for strength. This is no easy task, but it is what all have been called to do. “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19).

Recognize your sin: The first step to salvation is recognizing that there is sin in your life. The following verses identify that there is sin in the lives of all men and women.
“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
“There is no one righteous, not even one” (Romans 3:10).

Penalty for Sin: Based on the following verse, explain that the death is not a worldly death, but it is an eternal death; separation from God for eternity.
“The wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23(a)).

God’s Gift: God’s gift to man is salvation, eternal life, through the death on the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God’s son. We are not deserving of this gift because we are sinners, but God gave us this gift because of his love for us.
“The gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23(b)).
“God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

Become part of the family of God: These verses identify the need to take action in order to find salvation.
“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9).
