Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Tim 2:15 KJVOften times we are asked, "What do you teach in the jail"? Or, "Do you have written lessons/lesson plans"? The answer to the first question is we share lessons from the Bible. Could be about God's love for us, his plan for our lives, or how we come into fellowship with Him. Any subject you have heard from the pulpit or through Bible studies one of us have used as a study/lesson in the jail over the years. The answer to the second question is yes and no. Yes, we do have written teaching material that each of us have developed over the years, but no, not the same material that we all use or share or are even aware of.
This sometimes, the lack of written teaching material, is a stumbling block to people who might otherwise be interested in becoming involved with the jail ministry. Some people would prefer to have lessons readily available for them to use. That's understandable.
So to that end, every month or so we will post a lesson one of us has used so that it will give you an idea of what we teach. And, hopefully, encourage you if you are interested in jail ministry to know that you are not alone; we will come along side you to assist you in any way that will help you grow in this ministry.
And here is an opportunity to serve with the jail ministry without ever hearing a heavy steel door clanging shut behind you. If you have a gift for writing Bible lessons, write us a few. All of us would appreciate it.
Lessons from the Bible are infinite. This posting is just one example.
