Conclusion

Jesus declared, “[The Father] hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised” (Luke 4:18). Christ brought a message of hope and deliverance to those who had no hope without Him. It is this same message that He calls Christians to share with those behind bars and elsewhere.

Christians have every reason to believe that God will continue to work mightily in jails and prisons in this country and around the world. After all, He has chosen to save the foolish, weak, and base things of this world so that no flesh may glory in His presence (1 Co. 1:27-29) The truth is that no matter how often jails are expanded, they will continue to fill to overflowing. The world is steeped in lawlessness. Depraved mankind is in the throes of rebellion against God. Yet, it is into this dark, rebellious, hopeless world that God is shining His light and finishing His program of redemption. Our responsibility is to do our part in completing the “Great Commission” as opportunity is presented in prisons and other places around the world that are seeking the Truth and Hope that the Gospel provides.
