What a life.
What a legacy.
Imagine preaching the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ to millions of people around the world year after year, decade after decade. Yet...
Billy Graham made it clear in the early 1980s that his ministry could be over at any point. “If I should ever take any glory away from God, God would take up His hand off my life and my lips would turn to clay.”
It’s a sobering thought that the Lord could nullify what any given individual does best. It’s potentially even more sobering to ponder, What am I doing that has eternal value?
Thankfully, God doesn’t divide life into “sacred” and “secular.” Whether at home or work, whether in the community or church, the Lord can work in and through us for His glory and honor and praise.
All a person has to do is ask the all-knowing God, the Omniscient One, for His wisdom for life here on earth (James 1:5). The Lord is more than happy to answer such prayers. Thanks to Billy's example, I’ve prayed it many times.
