A man who came to mock the sacred things of God was convicted by God. He converted the next day.

Following excerpt from 60% into Recollections of an Evangelist by Robert Gribble
Among the crowd was a man who came with the avowed intention to mock this sacred ordinance, though entreated by his wife, who knew something of the power of truth, not to do so. But the Lord met with him in the way, and exhibited the power of His grace in subduing the enmity of his heart, and making him willing to follow Jesus. It is remarkable that the few words which I felt to be so powerless were those to which he attributed his conversion. On the following Lord’s day he purposely came to meet me in the road, and to tell me what the Lord had done for his soul, and he soon after made an open profession of faith in Christ, by being himself baptised in His name.
