One of the main targets of Christ's ministry was prisoners: "To open blind eyes, to bring out prisoners from the prison and them that sit in the darkness of the prison house". --Isaiah 42:7
Prisoners need "regeneration", not rehabilitation, and Jesus has commissioned His followers to reach beyond the barbed wire and the bars to touch the lives of men bound by the shackles of sin. Even while dying on Calvary's cross, Jesus took time to reach out in love and concern to a prisoner. As a result, that convicted criminal experienced God's love, grace, and forgiveness. Between His death and Resurrection, Jesus "went and preached to the spirits in prison" -- Peter 3:19
We should follow the example of Christ by administering to prisoners. Numerous religions and cults are reaching out to them. We must get there first with the Gospel of Jesus Christ to lead inmates to experience the life-changing power of God that will free them from guilt, shame, negative emotions and addictions.
