One of the most influential gospel preachers of our century has gone on to His reward in glory.  Pam and I had just finished up our early van run and I was checking Facebook while waiting for the bank to open when we learned of his death.

Back in the early 90’s, Billy Graham came Philadelphia.  If I recall correctly, our church made two separate trips to Philadelphia. It was amazing to see Veterans Stadium filled.  Sandy Patti was the guest musical artist on a very warm Sunday afternoon.  It was amazing to here this man of God in person.  I do remember him making a comment on the heat radiating off the field and something about the Phillies.

Billy Graham preached the Gospel and many, many, many people came to know Jesus as a result.  It is reported that Billy Graham preached to more than 200 million people in the 185 countries.  Well done, you good and faithful servant.  

“It is the Holy Spirit’s job to convict, God’s job to judge and my job to love.”
