The Prison Ministry of Love

Matthew 25

37 "Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’  NKJV

This week, we received our first known request for “The Circumcised Heart of Love” to be sent to an individual in prison.  Jesus in the above passage did not forget those in prison.  For GOD so loved the prisoners, HE gave…

What would happen if all the prisoners in a facility were to grasp the revelation of Love?  Every prisoner is there because he “took” something: life, money, safety, possessions.  He is a “taker” whereas Love gives.  The current system is not designed to rehabilitate but to remove and compartmentalize the problem.  The U.S. has one of the highest per capita prison populations in the world.  Houston, we have a problem!

The answer is Love.  If you change a man’s heart, you will change his direction.  Why not send copies of the book to the local prison?  After all, they are a captive audience.
