Deb’s Dozen: Billy Graham: called by God to be the evangelist to the world.
Billy Graham has been often called America’s pastor and an evangelist to the world. Most of us have heard of him; some have heard excerpts from his crusades; while others are fortunate enough to have heard him in person. The Billy Graham Evangelical Association and Virgil Films have produced the story of Mr. Graham’s life from farm boy to student to preacher to evangelist. He spoke where the Lord called him: in the US, North Korea, London, Moscow, South Africa, and more. As a result, he fulfilled the Great Commission to go unto all the world.
The Evangelist’s Message:
Billy Graham‘s message was simple. God loves you. He loves you so much He sent His son to die for your sins on a Roman cross. He raised His son from the dead to reign forever with Him in Heaven. Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to God the Father but through Him. And those who are in Him are a new creation, because the old has passed away, and all has become new. He closed every message with an invitation to come to Christ.
The Evangelist’s Mission:
Billy Graham said, “My one purpose in life is to help people find a personal relationship with God, which, I believe, comes through knowing Christ.” The film inspires reflection because through his life we are reminded of those events in our history we may have forgotten. Martin Luther King and segregation, the Oklahoma City bombing, 9/11, and more. America’s pastor Billy Graham went to these places shortly after the events occurred and helped bring comfort to the suffering and to the nation.
Every president from Dwight Eisenhower to Donald Trump confided in Billy Graham and called him friend. As an evangelist, he took the message of the gospel all over the world. The film reminds us of how far our nation has progressed, however, we have so far yet to go. Billy Graham taught us that God is love and for us who love God, the fruit of the Spirit is love, and we will demonstrate that by loving others. How much today we need to practice that love for all humankind.
Billy Graham: An Extraordinary Journey will release on DVD and digital HD on November 6–one day before what would have been Billy’s 100th birthday. The Billy Graham Evangelical Association created this documentary, which features sound bites, news footage, interviews, and video clips from his incredible career and life. This humble man and great evangelist impacted world history and the entire world for his Savior, Jesus Christ. Certainly, his life was an extraordinary journey. You will want to purchase a copy of this DVD for your own.
COLLIDE Media Group gave me the opportunity to screen the film Billy Graham: An Extraordinary Journey, but I was in no way obligated to write a review. I have purchased a copy to view again. Watching the story of his incredible life has been a blessing.
