Every Tuesday night the Gideons have a jail ministry. last Tuesday brought a surprising turn of events. The president of the will local chapter of the Gideons is a man of about 70 years of age. A strong, committed, hard-working Lutheran, who is very interested in Scripture and what different people believe. At last Tuesday's meeting the Gideons had more than enough to men for the number of cells available in our local jail. The president was assigning cells to different people,and he and I ended up going to the same cell together because of the number of men available. In this very seldom happens when it does somebody has to double up and it was for this reason that we ended up doubling up. No sooner had we entered in the cell than one of the new inmates in the cell said, oh I recognize you because I accept the Lord Jesus Christ when you were preaching on the street. . Immediately the Gideon president perks up. What is this man talking about the president asked me? Well you know I said that I'm a street preacher and I go around witnessing to people on the street and apparently although I don't remember him this man was one of the people who accepted Jesus Christ on the street. Well said the president tell me exactly how this would happen? I told him. He thought about it. And then he said, I have never been to church service where an altar invitation call was offered. And I vaguely know what an altar call is.. Later after we both had our turn speaking I gave a call to the inmates and low and behold this Lutheran president of the Gideons answered that call and said I want to say the sinners prayer. Later after some discussion I discovered that he did not believe in baptismal regeneration, nor did he believe what the Lutheran Church believes about the elements in Communion. He had been a member of the church of course all his life. But after hearing an invitation to be saved he changed his mind about his what his church told him concerning his condition (salvation).
