"Today you shall be with Me in Paradise."
- Luke 23:43
In Luke's account of the crucifixion, Christ's final recorded deed before darkness descended and the Son of God bore the sins of the world was to affirm the salvation of a repentant criminal who was receiving the due penalty for his earthly crimes. The consequences of incarceration and the time to reflect are powerful catalysts for realizing one's spiritual imprisonment and the need for an ultimate Savior to usher us from captivity to eternal life. Thus, inmates serving time within the prison system make up one of the most fruitful mission fields that are ripe for harvest.
