Seeing as we are preaching through Galatians, the below is most apt. In saying that, Billy Graham might have died four years ago, but the true message of the gospel certainly hasn’t.
Billy Graham was a wonderful brother in Christ who never stopped speaking about the promises found in Jesus, even at the age of 99! And he made the most of opportunities, wanting others to know Jesus too. Read what he said and be encouraged, as I am, in my walk with Jesus, through thick and thin.
Billy Graham’s final column
Editor’s Note: The Rev. Billy Graham, who passed away on Wednesday, wrote this column before he died. Q. Mr. Graham, how would you like to be remembered? – D.F. A. I hope I will be remembered as someone who was faithful – faithful to God, faithful to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and faithful to the calling God gave me not only as an evangelist, but as a husband, father and friend.
I’m sure I’ve failed in many ways, but I take comfort in Christ’s promise of forgiveness, and I take comfort in God’s ability to take even our most imperfect efforts and use them for His glory.
By the time you read this, I will be in heaven.
But I won’t be in heaven because I’ve preached to crowds or because I’ve tried to to live a good live. I’ll be in heaven for one reason: Many years ago I put my faith and trust in Jesus Christ, who died on a cross to make our forgiveness possible and rose again from the dead to give us eternal life. Do you know you will go to heaven when you die? You can, by committing your life to Christ today.
