People around the world are talking about the late Billy Graham, and why wouldn’t they? He’s been an inspiration to millions of people over the years, and I dare say he met many people in Glory that got saved after hearing a message the Lord placed on Graham’s heart. Regardless, there is coming a day when more people like Graham are no longer with us. AFA founder Don Wildmon comes to mind. So does Dr. James Dobson. The question is who will replace them? We can. We should. We are commanded to share the good news of Jesus Christ.
“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15).
I know what some people are thinking. “I’m just a (insert excuse here).” Moses did that too (Exodus 4:1-17). Look what God accomplished with him when Moses stopped making excuses. And yes, preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ will come at a cost. People will make fun of you or persecute you. Jesus tells us to expect as much (Matthew 10:22). Still, we need to keep in mind that people making fun of us or persecuting us do not know any better. They are lost. We all are lost people without Jesus Christ.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23)
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23)
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8)
“…If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” (Romans 10:9)
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16-17)
Share the gospel of Jesus Christ with someone. Billy did. Be like Billy.
“…Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk" (Acts 3:6)
