Jail Break

But an angel of the Lord came at night, opened the gates of the jail, and brought them out.  Then he told them, "Go to the Temple and give the people this message of life."  (Acts 5:19-20)

   The sirens wailed and red lights flashed on and off as the a loudspeaker squealed Jail Break.  Guards rushed to and fro shouting, "Where are the prisoners?"  This scenario could easily fit into the passage recorded in Acts 5:19-20 as stated above.

   This passage reminds me of my first experience in a jail -- not as a prisoner, but as a servant.  I was part of team that went once a month to share the gospel with prisoners at the jail in Belleville, Illinois.  We took a portable organ to each cell block and held a worship time with the prisoners.  I had the privilege of witnessing to an alleged murderer in a maximum security cell.  It was a scary but awesome experience.

   Did you know that God is still in the Jail Break ministry?  The Bible tells us that Satan has blinded the minds of those that do not believe, but Jesus died to set them free from the bondage of sin.  Now that's a glorious Jail Break, wouldn't you  agree?

 You can be set free from the shackles of sin by trusting in Jesus Christ as Savior.

Thought for the Day: Jail Breaks are a-okay when God is the liberator.
