1 Corinthians 1; 18:

« For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God »

In a early morning me and my partner received a call for a young person getting caught with drugs at school. What you should know is that this school was his last chance to have a diploma having been expelled from all other schools for the same reason. When I arrived at school I did not see a "kid" who was doing the attitude but an 18-year-old adult who was constantly watching the ground knowing what was waiting for him.

Something in me told me to talk to him about Jesus but I did not know where to start or what to tell him. So, since we were on a Friday, I simply invited him to join us that night in our youth group at the church. Against all expectations he showed up and I had the chance to learn a little more about him and his situation with his family. We gave him a bible and he began to cry, saying he had never received so much love; Even from his own family. Then, through a contingency contest, I never heard from him again.

It was only 5 years later via a common friend that I learned that he had made a 180° turn in his life, that he had put all the drugs aside, that he had joined to a church, had accepted Jesus in his life and was actively involved in his church.

God has told us that it is not a spirit of timidity that He has placed in us but a spirit of strength. Dare to open your mouth for Jesus!
