Freedom for Prisoners (Luke 4)
About the Guest
Jesus proclaimed good news to the poor, freedom for prisoners, and sight for the blind. That good news means that churches today should be full of ex-convicts (figuratively and literally), people who were spiritually blind to their own sin, and those pushed down by society. "Well, that's just great; Ron, but I don't want them in my church." It's funny how we draw lines of who's acceptable and who's not. Which families fit and which don't. But, then, anyone making those judgments is still blind.
Every church…is a prison ministry.
