Billy Graham, 1918-2018
Today we both mourn and celebrate the passing of a modern-day saint. He shared the story of Jesus' love with MILLIONS through his evangelistic ministry and I can only imagine the party happening in heaven right now!
Through the years, Billy witnessed to countless people through televised crusades. I remember seeing them on our own TV as a child. Thousands of crying men and women flooding the aisles of stadiums, stepping forward to ask Jesus into their hearts as the hymn, "Just As I Am" filled the air.
I was thinking how good it would be to listen to that music again today--honoring, nostalgic. But I can think of a much better way to celebrate the faith of Billy Graham--by sharing Jesus with someone you know. I make no claims to be an evangelist. It is not where I was gifted or called, but that doesn't mean that I don't have the responsibility to proclaim the Good News until Jesus comes again. If each of us would adopt the attitude of Billy for just one day, to reach just one person for Christ, would the world change? I promise it would change the world of that one person.
So my friends, For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him will be saved! (Jn3:16)
Jesus loves you, and God is waiting to forgive your sins and take away the pain. He promised you a clean start here on earth and a home in heaven when this life is over. Will you make the decision to follow Him today? It starts with a prayer. Admit you are a sinner, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, Confess your faith in Him.
