Christians Worldwide Celebrate The Life of Billy Graham

Join us on our podcast each weekday for an interesting story, well told, from Charisma News. Listen at charismapodcastnetwork.com.

Prominent evangelist Billy Graham died Wednesday morning at 99.
As news circulated the globe, Christians took to social media to celebrate the life of one of the most influential men in the world.
When evangelist Billy Graham died Wednesday morning, Spirit-filled believers were among the first to honor one of the most influential men in modern Christianity.
Here's what they are saying:
Michael Brown, author and social commentator:
The loss of this great man of God reminds us of the role he played in the last generation. How we need more at leaders like him, known for preaching Jesus, known for personal integrity, and respected by the nation. What an amazing man, and what an incredible legacy. He leaves a great void with his passing.
Lee Grady, author and social commentator:
WE HONOR THIS MAN who so simply explained the message of the gospel to millions in his lifetime. Thank God we still have his books and recordings. His impact will last far beyond his fruitful 99 years. I'll never forget going to a Billy Graham crusade in Montgomery, Alabama, when I was a boy. My grandfather made a profession of faith in that meeting.
Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Council 
Today, the most influential evangelist in modern history @BillyGraham stepped into the corridors of eternity.
He preached the gospel, lived with integrity and changed the world. Thank you for the example.
My condolences to the family.
Steven Furtick, pastor of Elevation Church
Paula White, pastor of New Destiny Christian Center
Larry Tomczak, author and social commentator

When I came to faith in Jesus Christ during the Jesus Movement in the late 60s, there was one Christian leader to whom I looked and continued to look for 4 1/2 decades, Billy Graham. He was the man of God I emulated and imitated and learned from like no other. My study has so many of his books and our living room coffee table has a giant book that is a tribute to him and remains there till this day.
I was honored to have a divine appointment with Billy Graham in the lobby of the Sheraton hotel and I asked him if he had any counsel for me and 2000 young people we were reaching in the DC area every week. He took his Bible from under his arm and pointed to it and with his piercing blue eyes looked at me and smiled saying, "Stay in the book. Stay in the book!" As we all pay tribute to him and remember him, may we all do that as we pray for another Great Awakening that he longed for with us.
