There have been several times when prison or jail inmates have hit me with this challenge question: “Are you a volunteer, or do you get paid to come and talk with us?”

One of the challenges that we frequently face in sharing the gospel is how to minister to inmates in prison, who are repeatedly exposed to what Paul describes as, “persuasive speech that sounds reasonable,” but in truth, is just another veiled attempt by Satan to move them “away from the hope of the gospel” — the certainty that through Christ, forgiveness, life and salvation are ours.

Opening Doors During a National Crisis

Wow! God has certainly been busy turning evil into good during this national health crisis! While most of us have been sequestered in our homes by government restrictions, God has blessed one of our volunteers with a unique opportunity to serve at a county jail. Having been deemed an essential worker by the jail where he volunteers, Luke has been able to minister to a fledgling group of Christians, and God has been busy pouring out his blessings.

In Acts 16, the Word of God tells us that the Holy Spirit twice prevented Paul and his co-workers from going where they wanted to go to share God’s Word with people. For this reason, Paul went to Troas where, one night, he received a vision of a man urging him to come to Macedonia to share God’s Word with the people of northern Greece. So, that’s what Paul did.
