The Challenge of a Lifetime

What’s the boldest thing you’ve ever done for Christ? When was it? Never be satisfied with either answer!


As Christians, we are all familiar with The Great Commission.

In other words, we are all missionaries. The question is how well are we doing?

I remember when my wife and I were on a bus tour of Europe. The bus was packed with over 40 tourists – most of them older than we were. During this 3 week bus tour, we found ourselves in a new country almost every day.

It was Sunday. We were traveling and I realized that I would not have an opportunity to attend a worship service. I felt almost guilty. It dawned upon me that we could at least do something. After wrestling with God. I walked to the front of the bus. As I made my way down the aisle to the back of the bus, I informed each of my fellow tourists that I would lead a short devotional service at the next stop. I invited them to meet with me to the left of the bus exit if they were interested.

Frankly I was horrified. What would these people think? After all, I was stuck with them for another 2 weeks!

The moment came. The bus stopped. I was the first on off the bus and stood to the left of the stairs that exited the bus.


It was not a profound sermon. But we closed with a hymn followed by a prayer. Oddly, just after the final “amen” dozens of clocks struck 12. We were at a clock factory in the Black Forest of Germany. The bells rang out.

From that point forward, Christians were everywhere on that bus. Bibles came out. I was called upon to say a blessing before meals. It was total and complete victory!

But it never would have happened if I did not overcome my fear. The boldness God gave me in that moment has lasted a lifetime. That’s why I wanted to share it with you here.
