As you have probably heard this past week Reverend Billy Graham died, as he would say, his home was in heaven and he was just passing through.
Over the course of his ministry it is estimated that he preached to over 200 million people at more than 400 crusades. A poll in 2005 said that 1 in 6 adult Americans had heard Billy Graham speak, not to mention the thousands of others he impacted around the globe.
What did he preach to all those people? A very simple message, The Gospel.
‘For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life’” (John 3:16).
Many people can point to the fact that Billy Graham’s ministry was used in their life, to help them find redemption through Jesus Christ.
