The minister apologetically turns him away. Two days later, Maxwell delivers his sermon to the First Church of Raymond, and at its conclusion, the same tramp unexpectedly appears and addresses the congregation. This man, Jack Manning, relates how he lost his job as a printer and that his wife has recently died.
Maxwell takes the tramp to his home to convalesce, but Manning dies a week later. This experience effects a great change in Maxwell. He realizes that Christian disciples should be willing to sacrifice and consecrate their lives.
He invites members of his congregation to take a pledge for one year to ask the question, What would Jesus do? In His Steps depicts how those who choose to accept this invitation not only influence the community of Raymond but also begin a movement that will spread throughout the entire country.
Among that initial group of nearly fifty souls in Raymond who take the pledge is Rachel Winslow, a gifted singer who chooses to forgo a promising career in order to consecrate her talent to God.
In addition to singing in the First Church of Raymond, she volunteers to help Mr. Gray with tent revival meetings in the decayed Rectangle District, and her music touches the hearts of those affected by life in the slums and saloons; in the process, she helps bring souls to Christ.
