No Pit Too Deep: A Redemption Story
People who don’t know Jesus, who have never had an opportunity to hear the Gospel and find the hope and life He offers…well, they often live in very deep, dark spiritual pits.
Yet they’re not beyond God’s reach, they are not beyond redemption.
Luc, a Global Disciples’ Discipleship Program Director from the Democratic of Congo shares what God did when their disciple-makers went on outreach into their communities.
“After winning many souls to Christ,” he wrote, “our church planters entered the jail. They met Mr S who was a big leader of a gang of robbers.”
According to Luc, these were no small-time petty thieves, but a gang notorious for violence and criminal activity.
Mr S was their chief—he was in jail because he’d been arrested for rape.
Two of his right-hand men had come to visit him that day. Then in came these newly-trained disciple-makers!
God gave the disciple-makers grace in the eyes of these notorious criminals, and the three men all heard the message of the Gospel that day.
Not only that, but each one of them received Jesus Christ as his Savior!
A Gang Leaders Story Of Redemption
Mr. S, the gang leader, testified about his life—his journey into crime, confessing his sins and all the terrible things he had done. It was a long story to tell, but he praised God for saving him, for reaching into his dark and sinful pit and pulling him out with the love and salvation of Jesus.
What a glorious story of redemption that took place in that jail that day!
Corrie ten Boom was right—God’s love is deeper than any pit we fall in or make for ourselves out of our sin and rebellion. His reach is long, and His arm is strong to save each person who calls on His name. And He calls us to share that message with anyone we meet, wherever we are today!
Global Disciples Canada is a Christian mission organization that trains local leaders living near least-reached communities to multiply disciples for Christ. One-third of our world hasn’t heard the Good News of Jesus. Yet. Global Disciples refers to these as “least-reached” people, and fewer than 10% of all missionaries work among these groups. We live in a time where many of these people are within reach of a local church. Through our simple and effective strategy of training and coaching, believers share the Gospel in their own nations and cultures. Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations,” and we’re committed to doing just that. If you are looking for a Christian mission organization to partner with to become a better disciple and help make disciples, connect with us today!
