Less than 24 hours ago, i.e., Friday morning (March 2, 2018), the world and foreign dignitaries joined Americans from coast to coast and of every class and ethnicity as we came together, some in person and many others through our tv sets, to pay our final respects to the Reverend Billy Graham.
The service was as spiritual as it was uplifting. Reverend Billy Graham’s children and friends shared memorable moments giving the world insight into the man, Billy Graham. The service was not so much a moment to mourn but to celebrate the life of the Son of God’s most famous cheerleader.
Thus, it is only fitting that on Reverend Billy Graham’s grave and marker will be the inscription:
November 7, 1918-February 21, 2018
Preacher of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ
John 14:6 reads, “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’” It is only fitting as Reverend Graham has quoted this passage hundreds if not thousands of times over during prayer, at crusades throughout his life.
See video below of Reverend Billy Graham’s sendoff. [Note: I have cued the video to begin at the commencement of the funeral service (01:6:50) of video.]
