God’s word will never come back void

I was the St. John Parish Sheriff Department Chaplain under the Wayne Jones’ administration. My friend, Danny Louque and I did a Bible sharing meeting in the jail for the men every Wednesday night for eight years. It was a volunteer program for inmates and the maximum amount we could have in attendance was 45. We had a waiting list of men who wanted to attend. This was one of the most exciting meetings of any that Get High on Life held.
I realize that all good things come to an end. When Mike Tregre was elected, he discontinued the spiritual program.
Over the years, many people who attended these meetings tell me how much the meetings encouraged them.
Last week, I received a call from Texas from a man named Roy who was passing through the area and wanted to stop and see me. He had attended the meetings while incarcerated for three years.
We agreed to meet at Wendy’s and he, his wife, his two children, my wife and I spent some time together. He said how much the Get High on Life spiritual meetings meant to him and talked about the people he remembered who were incarcerated with him.
The bottom line is that he was doing extremely well and gave God the glory for helping him.
Needless to say, that call and visit encouraged me that sharing God’s Word will never come back void.
I thank God for allowing me to work in His ministry of Get High on Life. It’s been a blessing.
