2018 FEB 21 – Matthew 22:14
For many are called, but few are chosen.
Today, Billy Graham took his turn. Some would say he will be remembered for being on the wrong side of history. Does it matter for a man who had done so much good and had such an impact on Christians and their faith for almost 75 years? Instead of focusing on his positions, I chose to think about what he did well. And honestly, it is most than the writers and critics had an impact in their profession.
I admire that he did not want to be in the same room with another woman alone. That he influenced Presidents. That he spoke to millions. Wow!
Johnny Cash and Billy Graham did a song together, The Preacher Said, ‘Jesus Said’
Well with everybody tryin’ to tell us what to do
You wonder how are you to know whose word is true
But the preacher just keep on a bringing us a very same word
And from St Paul to Billy Graham the same is heard
And the preacher said of truth Jesus said
(And Jesus said I’m the way the truth and the life).
Come on, anybody who sings with an outlaw like Johnny Cash must be cool.
