Behind bars

Jim is constantly trying to work himself out of a job here as all preachers should be. 😀  You see the goal is not for us to hold their hands while they worship Jesus. Even though we are happy to. The goal is to teach them to worship God themselves. To find Him, to seek Him, to hunger for Him and to follow Him. Because especially for inmates we cannot always be there. But we know who can.

Jim encourages the guys in the prison to sing their own worship and to share lots of testimonies. We don’t like the one guy up front and the rest in the pews, everyone needs Jesus, and everyone needs to participate. Then long after Jim leaves the jail  Jesus is still there and they recognize it. They develop a one on one relationship with Him that will last a lifetime.
