How To Be a Missionary Without Ever Leaving Your Cell

A tract made to encourage prisoners to share the gospel with others. Comes in a pack of 50.


“The Apostle Paul was a mighty man of God. He was often in jail, and actually did his most effective and far-reaching work while in a prison cell in Rome.

How can a prison inmate be a missionary for Jesus Christ? Well, the invitation in the Bible reads like this: “Come unto Me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 28:11). Christ said it. Note that there is a gift involved. Have you received this special gift from God? If not, why not?

The invitation does not say, “You may not come if you are in jail.” The invitation does not suggest that you have to be living a good, clean life. If not, why not?

In Romans 5:8 we read: “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Further, it is clear that we are all sinners. “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). AND, “For the wages of sin is death but the GIFT of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

If a man recognizes his own condition, that of a sinner, and chooses to ask God to give him that FREE gift, even Jesus Christ, then he can be sure his life will change (2 Corinthians 5:17). And with that new life will come a great new joy (Galatians 5:22-23). As we sense the life of sins forgiven, we will wish to tell others.
So, today, as with the Apostle Paul, a man or a woman, may be a missionary even though he/she is in a cell. But how, you say? Just tell of what Christ has done in your life. He is the One Who came in and brought peace to your heart. He brought an inner joy that cannot be taken from you. He is the One Who put His LOVE in your heart. What a wonder of wonders! A miracle of God’s love and grace. And is it any wonder that we wish to tell others of so great salvation?

“For whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).

One way to serve the Lord as His child, and in a missionary ministry, is to encourage others to take the free Bible courses offered by Prison Mission Association. We invite you to team up with them for Christ our Lord.
Are you free now in Christ? So was Paul (Galatians 5:1). He spoke of REAL FREEDOM. It is well to remember that Paul was often in prison, yet he could say by God’s Grace, that we find real freedom when we trust Christ.

The Scriptures give us Christ’s own words like this:

“Ye shall know the Truth, and the
Truth shall make you free.”
John 8:32”
