Preaching in Prison

Mike Wittmer recently had the opportunity to preach at a prison in Muskegon, Michigan.  When he blogged about it, he noted how the prisoners worshiping there longed to hear truths that came straight from Scripture as opposed to creatively crafted messages that emanated in the imaginations of men.  Oh that this would be true of us all!  Mike went on to state,
Bottom line:  it’s wonderful to worship with a redeemed group of 75 prisoners, singing “I will rise when He calls my name, no more sorrow, no more pain,” because they sing like they mean it, as if they desperately need it to be true. God is working in our prisons, and if you ever get the chance to preach there, or even to worship there, take it. There’s nothing else quite like it.
