This morning, I read the obituary of one of the greatest men in Christian history, Reverend Billy Graham. It is truly touching to reflect on all the ways that God used Reverend Graham and his ministry to impact the lives of many for eternity. Heaven is having a huge homecoming celebration today.
One of the greatest ways that I have recently been impacted by Billy Graham in the last few years is through his documentary called “Heaven.” I have watched it time and time again, thinking about how wonderful eternity in Heaven will be. This documentary will forever hold a special place in my heart, because I watched it with my Grandma, the last time she came to visit us in Tulsa before she passed away. Both sets of my Grandparents were devout Christians their whole lives, but to this day, I feel as though God was prompting me to watch it with her. It was a special moment that we shared together, and I will never forget it.
Last night, my parents and I watched the Christian movie, Same Kind of Different as Me. It is such a powerful and touching true story about sharing the Good News of Jesus with the homeless. There is a quote in the movie that I feel sums up Billy Graham’s life, and what he stood for; “Whether we're rich or poor, or somewhere in between, we're all homeless, just working our way back Home.” Earth and the things of this world are temporary, and this world is not our home. We are pilgrims just passing through, making our way back to our eternal home in Heaven, with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We will see you again soon, brother Billy Graham.
