Why are prisons the most spiritually fertile harvest field on this planet? Part 3 of 10
If you have valuable seeds to plant a garden, where is best place to plant? On concrete, or hard ground, thorny ground, or nice fertile ground that has been turned over?
In different ministries, I have experience different spiritual harvest fields. Right now with our prison ministry, we seen amazing results of transformed lives and huge rewards for the invest we make into lives of women and men behind bars that want to know God and turn their lives around!
People have asked me, why do I say that prisons are the most fruitful spiritual harvest field on this planet? I would like to share 10 reasons with you over the next 10 weeks and thank you for investing prayer, money and time to help us bring Glory to God as inmates and their families come to faith in Christ.
For review here are two from past two weeks:
1. Most inmates are very discouraged. They need to hear the Good News and Hope that only comes from God’s Word.
2. In prison, plenty of time to study God’s Word.
This week we look at #3.
3. Many are looking for purpose and meaning to life (Living for Christ gives an eternal purpose) Ephesians 3:9-13
When a person who feels there is no meaning to life and does not care about anyone or anything any more hears that God loves them and has a purpose and meaning for their life, its an amazing the transformation! Seeing God work not only in the inmates life but those around them and their family! Faith in Christ makes all the difference!
Next week we will look at reason #4. Please continue to pray with us and our vision to see Godly leaders developed and churches planted in the prisons as we follow God’s leading. We need more prayer partners, financial support and volunteers to help us reach this goal of spreading the Good news of the Gospel of the Grace of God!
