Rev. Billy Graham passed away today, February 21, 2018 at his Montreat, North Carolina home around 8 a.m. After a fruitful life of preaching the word of God and teaching the love of Jesus across the world he is now rewarded his wings and stepping into his eternal life.
Growing up in a family that watched Reverend Graham on television and from being fortunate enough to experience seeing him as a child in person is a beautiful thing that not everyone is fortunate enough to say. Rev. Graham was a very humble spirit and you could feel it no matter how large of crowd you were in. I would like to believe that is what being “Christ like” is and the energy it gives off to the people around you.
Graham was a strong influence and friend to Dr. Martin Luther King and the Civil Rights movement. In the life of Dr. King, he mentioned that he considered Graham a friend and many times he was able to go on because of him.
Graham served as a nonpartisan Christian view, an amazing sense of humour, and this often created criticism of him. Though we can long remember and teach from his life of speaking out against segregation and forcing integration for attendance to his services.
Well done, thy good and faithful servant, Evangelist Rev. Billy Graham. We thank you for a long, fruitful life of love, unity and being an example of what “Christ Like” looks like. Rest well.
