283,000 people in Chattanooga plus 513,000 in Dallas, plus 363,000 in Detroit, plus 318,000 in St. Louis. Add hundreds of thousands in each of North Carolina, Florida, Texas, Arkansas, and Kansas to sum up a good year in 1953. Two million in London (along with hundreds of thousands in a European tour, plus Nashville, New Orleans, among many) in 1954. 2.6 million in Scotland (along with hundreds of thousands in Canada and again in London, Paris among other European cities – and don’t forget tens of thousands at several locations of U.S. military bases) in 1955. How did one man have such an influence? Billy Graham spoke a Message to stadiums filled with people. The seeds planted by his preaching have grown around the world. Some receive accolades; others – just like anyone who makes a difference – receive criticism. But the message on this video points to One. I encourage you to watch.
“I am not told that I have to understand it all; I am told that I’m to believe, and anybody can believe. A blind man can believe. A deaf man can believe. An old person can believe. A young person can believe. And that word, ‘believe,’ means ‘commit.'”
Although I did not come to Christ in my younger years, when I did accept Him as my Savior at age 29, I then remembered all the times I heard Billy Graham on radio and saw him on TV. What a great man of God! I am so thankful for salvation in Christ and His faithful servants who continue to spread the Gospel today.
That was my absolute favorite quote in that video. What a phenomenal video at that! What an amazing influence Billy Graham has had!! Thank you for sharing.
