I had always liked the Romans Road to Salvation and so one day while listening to lectures I decided to draft up some graphics. One thing you’ll note about the Romans road elsewhere is that they differ here and there. I thought about how I would articulate each point, usually adding what I thought was missing, and so I made some adjustments here and there. Some key things:
Stay in Romans. I wanted to be sure to stay in Romans because one of the cool things about the Romans is that it is all based in romans (do I get captain obvious points?). I wanted to keep that focus on Romans.
Stage six. I wanted to include stage six because many of the Romans Road I found neglected this stage and I thought it was quite bizarre. I felt like the Romans Road should logically have the outworking of genuine faith expressed.
Mention context of passages briefly. Specifically in Romans 5. While you can weave the texts of the Romans road into a gospel presentation, many of the texts are already in a redemptive context. So I just wanted to briefly add in that “this text discusses this, but we’re sitting here for this purpose”.
Explain some concepts that are often left out – describing repentance, faith, confession, heart, etc. This seemed important because honestly, it seems like many people don’t know the language and this makes it meaningless if we don’t include it.
That said, here’s my “Romans Road”. It’s backwards (right to left, bottom to top) because it was designed for instagram.
