When we arrived at the Daniel College, a Christian school in Guebwiller, Alsace, I must admit that I was not in great shape. Some days are like that…

Dozens of teenagers sat in the room, and I said to myself: ‘They are a bit turbulent; it won’t be easy to get them captivated.’

I went up to the front, trusting the Lord for help.

Thirty minutes later, I gave an altar call. Deep down in my heart, I didn’t have much faith. But then, one hand went up, then another…

More than half the students were on their feet at the end to confess their commitment to follow Jesus for the rest of their lives.

God sometimes surprises us. It is He who, by His Spirit, convicts of sin. Our role is simply to proclaim the Gospel, even when we are not always feeling great!
