He was a faithful man. Faithful to his Lord and his wife and his ministry.
He was one of the few “famous” evangelists who never seemed to stumble–who never got caught in a moral quagmire.
A lesser-known fact about evangelist Billy Graham is that he worked with Cardinal Karol Wojtyla in Poland to take the Gospel behind the Iron Curtain. When Graham landed in Wojtyla’s Poland, however, he was unable to meet with Wojtyla–who had been called to Rome to became Pope John Paul II.
Billy Graham preached in Wojtyla’s pulpit. He carried the Gospel wherever God led him–wherever people let him.
He was America’s pastor. He was the world’s pastor too.
He belonged fully and completely to Jesus Christ.
May we follow in his footsteps.
