This morning a giant went to be with His Lord. Evangelist Billy Graham died at the age of 99 leaving behind him a rich history of faithfulness to Christ.
I never had the opportunity to see him in person. The closest I ever came is that his son Franklin once waved hello to me at a rally he held in Madison, WI last summer. Yet, the well-known evangelist had a profound impact on my life. My Dad was led to Christ during a Billy Graham crusade. It was because of this that I was raised in a Christian home and was exposed to the gospel at an early age. My Dad and I would watch many televised crusades together along with several movies produced by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association such as Joni and Time to Run.
Thank you, Dr. Graham, for your passion for the gospel and commitment to the Kingdom. Someday we will meet around the throne of God worshipping the savior you’ve been pointing us to for so long.
