The American Evangelist Billy Graham was one of the most important
religious figures of the past century. He preached the simple message of
the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world.
Offering an altar call at every crusade, taken the invitation literally to”come just as you are” to Jesus Christ.
In 1975 Billy Graham said, “I believe that every problem facing us as Americans is a spiritual problem. Crime is a spiritual problem. Inflation is a spiritual problem. Corruption is a spiritual problem. Social injustice is a spiritual problem. The lack of will even to defend our freedom is a spiritual problem.
Billy Graham was once asked if he was a pessimist or an optimist?
He said, “I am an optimist because I’ve read to the last page of the Bible.”
If our only hope is in this life guaranteed, you’ll be miserable.
Do you look at this world and feel hopeless?
We not only see the world’s problems, but we also have the personal load we carry.
How do we hang onto hope?
Where does your hope come from?
My hope does not come from an organization, not in a plan but a man,
a person who sits at the right hand of God the Father, Jesus Christ.
There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under
heaven by which we must be saved.
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life
through Christ Jesus our Lord.
And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?
So come, just as you are today.
Come. Oh Lamb of God, I come, I come.
Until next time, Pam
