Living On Death Row
To those who are in jail, in prison, or on death row,
we are not here to condemn you, or to judge where you have been,
but rather to offer you hope;
hope that is found in Jesus Christ.
May our words be a source
of comfort and encouragement to you
through this difficult time.
A Letter from Death Row
Oh mama, you wouldn't believe how hard it's been
living on death row.
Its dark cell of cold steel metal, it sickens me.
Yet, I only have myself to blame.
I never dreamed that I could become such a monster,
that I was capable of taking another person's life.
One bad decision in a heated moment caused such anguish.
Now I must pay with my life.
I await like a spider hovering over a flame
for the messenger of death to tell me it's time.
My eyes are parched, mama,
searching endlessly for materials to plan my escape.
I've climbed these walls a thousand times in my mind.
Night after night outside my window,
I hear the voice of the preacher
pleading with me to accept God's mercy.
He calls out to us relentlessly.
His convicting words laced with compassion.
"No matter how far into the pit you have fallen,
God's grace is greater still.
Come to Christ with nothing to offer.
Come to Him just as you are."
One endless night flows into another.
I cover my head with my pillow to drown out his words.
I think the preacher is right mama.
In a strange way we are all on death row.
Sinners condemned to die by a Holy and Just God.
The preacher says there's no locks, no bars in heaven.
The gates of the City are open day and night.
The evil ones shall be cast into the fire.
No one shall look longingly through the windows.
Oh mama, I miss your touch! I miss your smile.
I'm sorry for the anguish that I've caused!
I see my sin, I've dismissed my appeals.
Now, I'm in agreement with God.
When the messenger of death tells me its time
and I shall walk its darkened hall,
I won't be alone mama.
I will be escorted by the angels
into the presence of God!
The Lord desired that you'd be here tonight
for our steps are ordered by the Lord.
No matter how far into the pit you have fallen,
God's grace is greater still.
The Scripture says,
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."
~ Romans 3:23
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus
and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,
thou shalt be saved."
~ Romans 10:9
Tonight, if you would like to receive the gift of eternal life
first you must believe in the Lord.
You have to ask for your sins to be forgiven
and put your trust in the Lord.
To be a believer in the Lord, ask for eternal life.
There's only one way to heaven and that's through the Lord Jesus.
That's God's wonderful plan of salvation.
You can begin a personal relationship with Him
by praying from your heart a prayer such as the following:
"Oh God, I'm a sinner.
I've been a sinner all of my life.
Forgive me, Lord.
I receive Jesus as my Savior.
I trust Him as my Lord.
Thank you for saving me.
In Jesus' name, Amen."
If you have received the Lord Jesus as your personal Savior,
after reading this invitation, please let us know.
We would love to hear from you. Your first name is sufficient.
"Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved"
~ Acts 2:21b
Welcome to the family of God!
We are excited about your decision to accept the Lord Jesus as your Savior,
and would like to encourage you to find a church that you could be a part of
to help you grow in your new walk with Him.
Also, we encourage you to develop a personal relationship with the Lord
by reading the Scriptures and praying to Him often.
Talk to Him as you would talk to a dearest friend.
He desires that closeness and intimacy with you!
"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd:
he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them in his bosom,
and gently lead those that are with young."
~ Isaiah 40:11
