Shownotes

The Importance of Prison Ministry 

  •  “Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them; and those who are ill-treated, since you also are in the body” (Hebrews 13:3)
  • “I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me” (Matthew 25:35)
  • And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me'”.  (Matthew 25:40)

Interested in getting involved in prison ministry? Make sure you don’t go into prison ministry alone. Partner with an existing ministry or organization that can guide and prepare you. Check out Kolbe Prison Ministries!

Finding a Priority in the Spiritual Life 

  • The enemy can easily distract us in our spirit lives by overwhelming us with a long list of action items. The best way to avoid this temptation is to focus on one goal at a time.
