Wales, c.1904. Being specially burdened for the youth of his congregation, the pastor called together his young people. He asked if they could tell him what the significance was of their relationship with Jesus.
When he called individually on a couple of the boys, they mumbled evasively, fading into the crowd. The conversation seemed to be at an impasse.
Right then, 14-year-old Florrie Evans spoke up. “I don’t know about anyone else,” she said, “but I’m not ashamed to say that I love the Lord Jesus Christ with all my heart!”
With that, a Spirit of conviction fell upon the group, and one after another gave a bold profession of faith. The entire atmosphere changed in the youth group. Parents, sensing the change in their children, began to make inquiries. Soon the whole congregation was caught up in the fervor.
Within a few weeks, a renewed sense of divine love was spreading from parish to parish, all across Wales. Within two years, 100,000 converts had made professions of faith. The entire nation was aflame with revival!
What if God…wants to do it again in your church?
In a hundred years, will your name be known to history as the flame that set a whole nation on fire?
