What Prison Do You Serve In? 

OCTOBER 9 & 10, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Acts 16:25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    Spending time with a bunch of inmates does not sound like a lot of fun to most people. Being confined in one place all day, being told when to eat, and what to do is not most people’s idea of good time. The thought of having to be so close for long periods with the sinful wickedness of the world makes it even less appealing to most believers.

    Now admit it, you have a picture of a jail cell, prison, or dungeon in your mind, right? However just think on this for a moment. Most places of employment or education could be described in the same manner. Confined in one place all day, told when to take break and eat, when to work or go to class and what to do. Sounds like most factories, offices, and schools I know of. The similarities go on. Things such as having to be so close for long periods of time with the sinful wickedness that surrounds us in this world. If you work in a secular job or attend public education, then you most likely rub shoulders everyday with the sinfulness that is trapped in the hearts of people around you every day. They are imprisoned by sin just like an inmate who is behind bars. They are just as miserable and need just as much to be set free.

    So now, let me ask you the all-important question. Do the prisoners around you hear you praising God and singing as those around Paul and Silas did? Or do they hear you grumbling just like they do about your surroundings and work conditions? What do the prisoners in your world see of your Saviour in you?

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    There is a little phrase most of us have heard, and most of us forget. It goes something like; “I might be the only Jesus the world has ever seen.” This is so true. Brighten the corner of the world where God lets you serve today. Praise Him, sing, and be happy. Rejoice in the Lord always… again I say REJOICE.

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
