The Spirit of Billy Graham


Laura Ingrahm’s FaithZett has a timely article by Michael Anthony on what we can we learn from the life of Billy Graham. You can read the article here, but the important takeaways are listed below.

First, Billy Graham had an unwavering commitment to speaking the truth in love. He was a master at this dying art.

Second, Billy Graham never saw people as the enemy. He knew how to love the sinner and hate the sin.

Third, the source of Billy Graham’s humble courage was not his own. It was the byproduct of spending time with his Savior, Jesus.

Fourth, there were far better orators than Billy Graham. Yet, Billy Graham was used above them all. Why was this?

Finally, Billy Graham believed that truth was not relative. It was and is absolute.

It’s up to each of us to carry on the work of Billy Graham.
