Today Billy Graham turns 97! Happy Birthday, Billy. May God bless you today and always.
Billy Graham is the epitome of integrity—both in life and as a Christian. He loves God, has served faithfully, is leaving a great legacy, and through it all has remained humble.
His ministry affected me! In 1981, Billy held a crusade in San Jose, California at Spartan Stadium. My husband, Fred, and I went. My mom sang in the choir during the services. I was already a Christian but did not fully understand what being "saved" really meant. After Billy's talk, the choir sang "Just As I Am." I had no intention of going forward…but in a short while my heart was moved and my feet started moving. I went forward. Fred went too. We recommitted our lives to Christ. It was real. It was meaningful.
After recommitting to Christ, my life really changed. I grew rapidly in my relationship with Jesus. My desire was, and still is, to live for Him and have my life count and produce much fruit. The Billy Graham Crusade really was the beginning of a life lived in service to Jesus. All I can say is, Thank you!"
"Thank you, Billy Graham. Thank you for faithfully preaching the Gospel. Thank you for allowing God to use you to get a hold of me. May God bless you. Happy Birthday!" #BG97TH
