Dr. Billy Graham is now with the Lord. What an amazingly wonderful reception that must have been!
What can we do to honor this servant of God? We can continue his legacy of making Christ known. Billy shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ with an estimated 200 million+ people in his lifetime. This was a passion of Billy’s, a deep commitment he lived out faithfully and well.
At One Mission Society, we along with many partners want to follow in Billy’s footsteps. While we may not have the packed stadiums, communication skill, and evangelism gift Billy had, we can have the same passion, the same heart for lost people. With hearts filled with the love of Christ, we can be used to help them understand and respond to Good News. A redeemer has died for all of us, the just for the unjust, to bring us to God! May we honor Billy, and more importantly honor the resurrected Christ, by having a heart of passionate love for people far from God. Every believer has a part to play, a contribution to make. May we never shrink back from making Christ and his salvation known to our family, friends, coworkers, and neighbors . . . and to the millions around the world who have not yet had the opportunity to hear, understand, and believe!
“For I am not ashamed of the Gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile” (Romans 1:16).
