Like many of you, I heard the sad news Wednesday morning that Billy Graham had passed away. Billy Graham left an incredible mark on our world and on this country. He was known by many as “America’s Pastor”. He was one of the pioneers of using technology and media to share a message of faith in Christ as far as he could.

He became the pastor to many of our nation’s Presidents and offered wisdom and direction to leaders across the globe. Throughout his ministry he did everything he could to preach to the masses and help lead people to a closer relationship with Christ. He would be the first to admit that he was not perfect, however, there are few who have done as much as he did to advance the cause of God’s Kingdom here on earth.

Today I am giving God thanks for Billy Graham and the influence he had on our world. I hope you will join me in lifting up his family and many friends in prayers as they experience the grief that comes with human loss, even knowing the great joy of resurrection. I have no doubt that Billy Graham heard those words from our Creator that we all hope to hear someday, “Well done good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your Master.”
