Billy Graham crusades

November 3rd, 2008

On Sunday nights I have been watching some of the old Billy Graham crusades on the Australian Christian Channel. It has been great to see these events and the responses of the people.

He is in some of the largest stadiums in the world and they are packed with people. When the people come forward in response to an alter call it gets me every time and I end up in tears. For me there are not too many things more special than when someone comes to Christ.

When you see that moment when the penny drops and people understand that Jesus died for their sin to purchase their salvation, it is awesome. When you are there with them, it is even better.

As my wife always says when we see people respond to an alter call, “There’s a party going on in heaven for each of those people right now”. It is so true. All of heaven rejoices at just one person coming to Jesus.
