“. . . I’ve wept as I’ve gone from city to city. . .” posted by jwatson on Nov 08, 2013
Did you watch it? My Hope with Billy Graham was an extraordinary video recorded over the past year that delivered a powerful message of the life transforming impact of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Graham, age 95, shared of the power of the Gospel to change lives, and also shared of his great concern for America. “Our country’s in great need of a spiritual awakening,” he declared. “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.”
The video included clips that testified to the far-reaching scope of his Gospel ministry, showing him alongside many presidents and famous entertainers.
Rapper LeCrae and Christian rocker Lacey Strum shared life-changing testimonies of the impact of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their lives.
Following its airing, the Today Show on NBC whittled down the main message of the video to America needing an “awakening.” Co-host Matt Lauer then referred to Graham as an “amazing man,” hardly the video’s intent. If that is what the media takes from My Hope, then they have missed the video’s main message, that man is in desperate need of a Savior, that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and no one gets to the Father but through Him.
