1 Samuel 12:24 (ESV)
Only fear the Lord and serve Him faithfully with all your heart. For consider what great things He has done for you.
I had the privilege to attend the Billy Graham crusade when it was held at the Pontiac Silver Dome in 1976. It was fun to be part of one of the first events held at the new home of the Detroit Lions. They were expecting about 30,000 to be there and were shocked when the total attendance topped 70,000. What a tribute to the power of God using a man that gave his all to serve his Lord and Savior.
Billy Graham has been named by Americans as "One of the Ten Most Admired Men in the World,” over 59 times with the Gallup poll. He has been known through the years as not only a world renowned evangelist, but as a kind, non-judgmental, accepting, and humorous soul. His message is timeless, powerful, and relevant for today. The phrase, “the Bible says,” resounds throughout his sermons, and the truth he has preached for years still transcends all barriers of denominational differences, age, nationality, and culture. It has stood the test of time and generations, pointing millions to Christ.
Dear Lord, we thank You for the men and women that stay faithful to the call that You put on their life. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
