Today a legend has passed into glory. My heart is hurting for us as a nation as we need more men like Billy, but my heart is also happy with what he is seeing. Billy is finally laying eyes on the hope that he preached about for decades.
Know this! Billy Graham has never been more alive than he is today. He is in the presence of Jesus Christ, the author, and sustainer of life! His ministry spanned decades he preached to over 200 million people in his live crusades. And counseled and prayed with every sitting President from Truman to Obama.
May his passing challenge and encourage us to be missionaries where we are.
