At the age of 95 Billy Graham has lived a full life. He has seen a century of change in America and around the world. He has befriended the rich and the powerful, and he has preached the Word of God in every corner of the planet. Billy Graham has influenced millions and changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people, and now his time is short and he is closing the book on his life’s work with a final sermon.
In a last message that has been in the works over the last year, he is going to tell everyone he can about the life, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, one more time. However, it seems that this last message may be focused towards his fellow American citizens.
In a video that was recorded over the past year, Graham delivers his familiar message about the saving power of Jesus Christ and expresses concern about the nation’s direction. “Our country’s in great need of a spiritual awakening,” he declares. “There have been times that I’ve wept as I’ve gone from city to city and I’ve seen how far people have wandered from God.”
His final sermon entitled, My Hope America, aired November 7th on Fox News and will continue to air across a diversity of television networks over the next few days and weeks.
As he turns 95 (11-7-2013) let us wish the Reverend Graham a happy birthday and thank him for his life of service.
