**** 1ST TIMOTHY 4:12 "DON'T LET ANYONE LOOK DOWN ON YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE YOUNG. INSTEAD SET AN EXAMPLE FOR THE BELIEVERS THROUGH YOUR SPEECH, BEHAVIOR, LOVE, FAITH, AND PURITY." ****
Romans 10:9 says, "Because if you confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, and you believe in your heart that GoD raised Him from the dead, YOU WILL BE SAVED!"
As I sit in my office at a maximum security prison for young men between the ages of 14-20, I wonder where God is in all of this crisis? That is a difficult question for me because I know that He is in control. Then my mind immediately reminds me that the problem lies within us as a nation! We are all in this together so we must all share some of the blame. Hebrews 13: 8 reminds us that, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever!" So the problem lies within us. For a country, that claims to be "One Nation Under God," I am just not seeing it. As Christians, we have allowed the Liberal Army in our schools, government, and society dictate what our children learn. We have hidden under the disguse of "Separate of Church and State." to lure us into a situation that only the "Second Coming of Jesus" can rectify.
I can tell you from the inside of a maximum security facility , WE ARE IN GRAVE DANGER IN THIS COUNTRY! There is a whole generation of young people locked up and what happens inside these mamimum security facilities is not pretty! I cannot and will not accurately describe what goes on between these walls; you would have to experience for yourself. I promise you, you do not want to be here! I could give you a mountain of statistics but those statistics only state the problem and that is useless.
Now that I tried to give yo a glimpse of the reality of our dire situation, There is Hope! That Hope lies within God and His Son Jesus Christ. GOD always has His soldiers working in the worst environments. There are many people here and in other facilities working feverishly to share the Gospel and to help these young men discover WHO THEY REALLY ARE IN CHRIST! James 1:2 states, " Count it joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds." I tell this to some of my students and they find it difficult to comprehend; some even laugh. But, we will continue to press on. I am totally convinced that the only solution for these young men and this generation is The Gospel.
WHO IS GOING TO STEP UP?
