May we be encouraged by the words of Billy Graham himself:
“I’ll preach until there is no breath left in my body. I was called by God, and until God tells me to retire, I cannot. Whatever strength I have, whatever time God lets me have, is going to be dedicated to doing the work of an evangelist, as long as I live.”
Inspiring. Faithful. Committed. These are just a few of the words that describe Billy Graham, a man who faithfully loved and followed Jesus. We celebrate his life today– a man who shared Jesus with millions, so many putting their faith in Jesus.
Just as the Lord had great purpose for Billy Graham, whether we affect millions or even one person, the Lord also has great purpose for you. May his life give us and our children a new zeal and eagerness to spread the Good news and love of Jesus.
