Billy Graham went to be with the Lord this past week. He spent many decades using his calling to bring people to Christ. He truly lived out the Great Commission.
So those of us in Christ, should heed the words in Colossians:
“Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on
Earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with
Him in glory.” (Colossians 3:2-4 ESV)
Rev. Graham made people realize that they were sinners and the only cure for that was to accept Christ’s sacrifice. We need to repent and turn to God.
“Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality,
impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.
on account of these, the wrath of God is coming.” (Colossians 3:5-6)
Rev. Graham and his ministry showed the world what God’s love looks like by the words he used, but more importantly, the way he lived his life to the end.
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” (Colossians 3:16-17)
Thank you for leaders like Billy Graham who take the Gospel to all the world and are not willing to compromise on Your Truth. As believers, help us all be as bold and uncompromising.
