Sunday Evening June 12: I just left the prison chapel and I must bear witness to what I saw and heard.
I heard the Good News about the Miracle Worker from Galilee who stood up in the synagogue one Sabbath day and declared that He had come to proclaim good news to the poor, set the captive free, give sight to the blind, and bring freedom to the oppressed.
He promised to completely transform people’s lives.
And countless millions have testified in the 2,000 years since that day, that yes, He actually does bring about the very transformation He promised. The preacher this evening testified that it happened to him 35 years ago.
As sat there listening, I thought about what happened to me 35 years ago, and how He is still patiently helping me change.
Jesus is Who He said he was, no doubt about it!!
Tonight the preacher very clearly and very simply preached deliverance from sin, salvation from hell, and the hope of heaven for all who surrender to Jesus.
I also witnessed tonight that men still have a hunger to be changed. The preacher issued an open eye invitation for all who wanted to receive Jesus or re-dedicate their lives to Him. About 30-40 men stepped forward.
Please join with me in praying for these men, that every one of them could enter into true faith and repentance and a joyful life with Christ.
For all who are weary, overwhelmed and discouraged, and hardly able to go on, Jesus knows and cares!
