From Jody Welker:
Today let us give thanks for the life of Billy Graham. His preaching reached many people around the world and brought many closer to Christ. Many a person was transformed by the message of repentance that he preached as he shared the love of Christ for the world.
We will not likely see anyone like him again in our lifetime. He was a complex person with whom some Christians agreed and other Christians did not in terms of theology or politics or even how to approach the issues of our day. But what we agreed on is that the God we worship is a God of love.
He would be the first to say he was not perfect. But that could be said of all Christians, could it not?! After all, as Graham might quote Paul, "we hold this treasure in earthen vessels" (1 Corinthians 4:7) He would say we all stand in need of the grace of God. One of the things I grew to appreciate about Graham as he aged is that he displayed a sense of humility. He had a sense of peace. He even had the ability to change his mind as he continued to think critically about faith and life.
Today I give thanks that he was someone whose faith revealed someone whose desire was to follow the great commandment, to "Love the Lord your God with heart, mind, soul and strength, and your neighbor as yourself."
May he rest in the peace and the joy of the Lord he loved and knew. ... See MoreSee Less
