Behind bars

The other morning Jim was preaching at the county jail. He is in a separate room where the lawyers meet with the inmates one on one. Kind of appropriate don’t you think? The ultimate defender meeting with them one on one, but in a group? God is so good 🙂 . Anyway some sort of ruckus, well actually a near riot broke out outside the room. The whole group, Jim and the inmates were all so focused on the presence of God they never knew what was happening. The whole jail was locked down. No other ministers were allowed in that morning. No one knew until they left the room and the guards were waiting to make sure Jim got out safe.

We are always saying that what God does with these inmates is a lesson for all of us. Get focused, and stay focused. Who cares what is going on outside the door, keep your eyes on His face.
