Witness to Prisoners

My wife gave me a note she had got from a friend at work the other day. He had written it down on a small paper plate that was torn in half and had some Strong words written on it. The person that gave it to her has been going to a prison to witness and share God’s word to them. Just as the bible says, “Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God.” 2 Timothy 1:8 KJV Which means giving testimony of our Lord (The Gospel ) and testifying the truth of it all men. Nor of me, the cause of the servants of God doing His work, cannot be separated from the cause of God Himself. But be thou partaker of the afflictions, which I endure for the gospel’s sake, according to the power of God. So back to the paper plate. Now this is what the prisoners have learned from the bible and by servants/witnesses, and this is what was “WROTE ON THE PAPER PLATE”  1) GRACE God’s Riches At Christ Expense  2) BIBLEBasic Instructions Before Leaving Earth  3) FAITH –  Forsaking All I Take Him.  I thought this was very interesting and very thoughtful by the prisoners and I thought I would share it with you. Just as I had a calling from God to share his word so did my wife’s friend at work. The bible says, “Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus.”  2 Timothy 1:9 KJV  So if you don’t have Jesus Christ in your life today, now is the time to ask Him for forgiveness of you sins. For He alone was sent here to put all of our sins on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. To have Jesus Christ as your personal Savior is the only way for eternal life. Amen
