When I received this letter from Jacob, something stamped on the front of the letter in red caught my attention; it said “not responsible for contents”. Why are those words important? Keep reading and I will explain.
“Hello, my name is Jacob and I’m writing to you from prison. Yes, I have made some mistakes in my life, but who hasn’t? This place is not fun, but I thank God every day for the opportunity I’ve had to change my life and get to know Jesus.
“I had never really listened to Christian radio before my trip to prison. I was placed in a zone where radio reception was terrible, except your station. It came in crystal clear. Instead of watching television and playing cards like everyone else did, I decided to read my Bible and listen to American Family Radio. So now after about a year of that, my whole life has turned around; my thinking process, my language, and the way I carry myself. My family, along with the people in prison can see a huge difference.
“I just wanted to say thank you. I would give you some of the credit for my life-changing recovery, but I give God all the glory!”
The contents of the letter explained how the life of one prisoner was changed. Neither the prison nor American Family Radio was responsible for that. God is the one who changes lives. Of course we need to do great radio, but in the end it’s God who does the work. It’s a good thing to remember that ultimately, we are not responsible for the “contents”, its God who does the work. That’s true in our radio stations and true in our personal lives as well.
