“The vilest offender who truly believes
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives”
These are the profound words of a songwriter. We know it is true because we have experienced God’s forgiveness by the blood of Jesus Christ.
However, many out there have NO idea that God is willing and ready to forgive them and wash them clean of their sins. Top among these (and often most neglected) are prisoners.
Many see them as the scum of the earth who are where they deserve to be — Behind bars. But the truth is God loves them too. Yes, as much as he loves you and everyone else.
No one alive is beyond redemption. There’s NO life that our Lord Jesus Christ cannot transform. We know that but many prisoners don’t.
Yes, the Lord Jesus Christ can transform the vilest offender if he truly accepts the finished work of Calvary. But how would they accept what they don’t understand? How would they understand if NO one takes the time to explain to them in a language they can understand?
That’s what The Prisoner’s Journey is all about.
The Prisoner’s Journey (TPJ) is a program that brings about real transformation in a prisoner. This is achieved by bringing him/her in contact with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Through The Prisoner’s Journey, we are introducing many inmates to a fellow prisoner: Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Just stop for a moment and imagine what happens once one prisoner makes the decision to accept Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and savior. Consider the profound effect this decision has on his family and the community at large.
