DO YOU WANT TO BE SAVED!

ROMANS 6:23

Romans 6:23

(NKJV)

23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I. The Approach

A. Be Complimentary

1. From the moment you walk on a person’s property, look for something you can compliment them about. A new home, pretty yard,

nice car, their children, etc.

B. FORM

1. Remember these 4 letters---F-O-R-M

a. F-BEGIN WITH THE LETTER F which stands for family. Ask questions about their family.

b. O-STANDS FOR THEIR OCCUPATION OR JOB. Ask about the husbands or wife’s job. This is a good and easy talking point

c. R-STANDS FOR RELIGION. This does not mean you get into a discussion on religion. This does not mean to begin talking

about the Bible, your religion or theirs. This letter refers to such questions as:

1. Mrs. Jones, what church do you attend”

2. Have you attended very long?

3. Do you attend regularly?

4. This will give you an insight to this person’s thoughts.

d. M- Last is the letter M = Message. THAT IS WHY YOU CAME

Example: Mrs. Jones, we are so glad you visited First Church. Mrs. Jones we’ll be going now, but it has been

so nice visiting with you. OH, by the way, may I ask you a question please? (Usually the answer will be

yes) At this time begin the presentation.

II. THE PLAN

A. Mrs. Jones, do you believe god can do anything? (usually the answer is yes).

B. Do you mind if I show you something that has been a real blessing to me” (again, normally the answer is yes).

C. Heb. 6:18 “…That by Two unchangeable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie((NLT). If this is true THERE IS SOMETHING GOD

CANNOT DO!! God cannot lie!

D. Do you mind if I show you something else?

Romans 6:23 (Let the read it for themselves) “…for all have sinned and come short of the grace of God….” If God can’t lie then it

must be true…We have all sinned.

E. Romans 6:23 says “For the wages of sin is death..How do we know everybody has sinned? Because we die—death is the penalty for sin.

“But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

AT THIS POINT ASK THE QUESTION:

“How long is eternity?” Eternity is for ever and ever isn’t it?—that’s a mighty long time)

F. 1 John 1:10 says “If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His Word is not in us. “

(You are at this point trying to make them realize they are a sinner)

Refer back to Heb. 6:18—GOD CANNOT LIE!---it must be true ---God cannot lie—We have all sinned!

As black as it looks, Mrs. Jones, (have her read) 1 John 1:9 says ,” If we confess our sins he is faithful

and just to forgive our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

If that is true that God cannot lie and Heb. 6:18 confirms it, then by a simple confession of our sins (this does not mean naming our

sins one by one, but by a general admission ‘that we are sinners, confessing it to Christ and inviting Jesus into our hearts we can
