Remembering Billy Graham

“So when my earthly life has ended and you wonder where I’ve gone, this will be the answer: I will be with Jesus — that’s where I am.” — Billy Graham, Where I Am

Remembering Billy Graham (1918-2018)
“My one purpose in life is to help people find a personal relationship with God, which I believe comes from knowing Christ.” —Billy Graham
A few years ago, Billy Graham proclaimed with resolve, “When I die, tell others that I’ve gone to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ—that’s where I am.” 

The greatest promise ever given to the human race came from the lips of our Redeemer when Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me…I go to prepare a place for you…I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also” (John 14:1–3).

Billy Graham preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ to some 215 million people through his crusades and simulcasts around the world. He passed away today, February 21, 2018 at his home in Montreat, North Carolina. He was 99.

Although we are grieving, we know Heaven rejoices. Here is one of our favorite devotions by Dr. Graham. We hope it will uplift and comfort you today.


God is Love 
by Billy Graham

From Billy Graham


Who can describe or measure the love of God? Our Bible is a revelation of the fact that God is love. When we preach justice, it is justice tempered with love. When we preach righteousness, it is righteousness founded on love. When we preach atonement for sin, it
is atonement necessitated because of love, provided by
love, finished by love.

When we preach the resurrection of Christ, we are preaching the miracle of love. When we preach the abiding presence of Christ, we are preaching the power of love. When we preach the return of Christ, we are preaching the fulfillment of love.

No matter what sin we have committed, no matter how black, dirty, shameful, or terrible it may be, God loves us. We may be at the very gate of hell itself, but God loves us with an everlasting love.

The proof? Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, went to the Cross for us.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
