Billy Graham passed away yesterday (21st February) at the grand age of 99. This is my tribute.
Thank you for defending the rights of the outcast and the downtrodden and for standing up for freedom and equality.
“Christianity is not a white man’s religion and don’t let anyone tell you it’s white or black, Christ belongs to all people.”
Thank you for your willingness to befriend ‘the enemy’ and for taking the gospel and light of Jesus to the darkest parts of the earth.
“I want to go as their friend. I want to see some of the positive things there, come out and report on them, because there has been so much negativism about North Korea.”
Thank you for being a role model and example for Christian men and husbands.
“We pledged among ourselves to avoid any situation that would have even the appearance of compromise or suspicion. From that day on, I did not travel, meet or eat alone with a woman other than my wife.”
Thank you for remaining humble and for openly confessing weakness in human knowledge and understanding.
“I have been asked hundreds of times why God allows tragedy and suffering. I have to confess that I do not know the answer.”
Thank you for openly demonstrating repentance and returning to ‘the call’ of God on your life.
“If I had to do it over again, I would also avoid any semblance of involvement in partisan politics. An evangelist is called to do one thing, and one thing only: to proclaim the Gospel.”
Thank you for reminding us that heaven is our real home.
“I know that soon my life will be over. I thank God for it, and for all He has given me in this life. But I look forward to Heaven.”
What a legacy this man has left behind and what an imprint he has made on the hearts of so many people.
Bye for now, Billy.
