Billy Graham’s Last Sermon to America

Every time my great-grandfather purchased a new pair of shoes (he called them brogans), he would say, “Daughta, this is the laaasst pair of brogans your old Pappa will ever buy.”  Of course, Pappa didn’t leave his earthly home until he was close to 90, so we heard that comment quite often throughout the years.  I really hope that Billy Graham calling this his last message to America is like those brogans. 

The video entitled The Cross is about 30 minutes and worth every second.  Those who take the time to click on the link and listen will hear once again a man who is not ashamed of calling on the name of Jesus.  He is not afraid of the truth.  Oh that our modern day preachers were so bold.  Billy Graham is proof positive that preaching the real Gospel Message is the only evangelism program a church ever needs.

What a blessing that this man of God does not shy away from the hard things.  May God bless us with many more willing to follow in Billy Graham’s footsteps - not because of his success - but because he was not afraid to place his feet where Jesus tread.

If it turns out this is Billy Graham’s last message to America, it will be our loss.  Let us pray that America listens well.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  I grew up in Episcopal Church Sunday schools.  But it was Billy Graham who explained to me who Jesus was and why He was important.

This great man is preaching two sermons. One is about Jesus and the Cross. The other one is about being old, feeble, yet faithful. He fits none of our cultural icons: young, strong, vital, in charge, so he bears witness to the great dignity of age, the strength in weakness, and the beauty of our fragile humanity.

I owe my dear husband, humanly speaking, not just to his parents, schools and education, but supremely to Graham’s preaching in the mid-1950s through which he was converted.

In my younger days, I thought the guy was a crack pot.  Now…after what I’ve been through with TEC…he’s one of the few guys on the planet that I actually trust.
