Matthew 25 The Sheep and the Goats 31 "When
the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the
angels with him, he will sit on his throne in
heavenly glory. 32 All the nations will be
gathered before him, and he will separate the
people one from another as a shepherd separates
the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the
sheep on his right and the goats on his left. 34
"Then the King will say to those on his right,
'Come, you who are blessed by my Father take
your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you
since the creation of the world. 35 For I was
hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was
thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was
a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed
clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you
looked after me, I was in prison and you came to
visit me.' Hebrews 3 Concluding
Exhortations 1 Keep on loving each other as
brothers. 2 Do not forget to entertain
strangers, for by so doing some people have
entertained angels without knowing it. 3
Remember those in prison as if you were their
fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as
if you yourselves were suffering.

  • Opening prayer
  • As we are gathered hear at your Church
  • Help us to focus on YOUR will . The CENTER of
    your will
  • Lord I am unworthy to stand before your people
  • Help me remove my pride and humble myself so that
    I may see the vision of your true WILL for your
    people here assembled and this ministry

Big / Little Things
  • Life is full of Big things and Little things
  • Ministry is the same
  • More often than not the little things were able
    to do make far more impact on our world than the
    seemingly BIG things
  • Remember those in prison via prayers / cards /
    letters
  • Pray for those in prison . . . inmates,
    volunteers and staff
  • Pray for the victims of crime who are left to
    survive the memory
  • Pray for those who are rebuilding their lives
    after incarceration
  • We all like our comfort zone
  • Its not about knowledge / Its all about
    relationship
  • Knowing about Jesus versus A relationship with
    Jesus
