was in eight grade when I attended one of his crusades in Minnesota held at Midway stadium in 1973. His message was very basic. You are lost without Jesus Christ. Billy Graham said this about his preaching, "During all my years as an evangelist, my message has always been the Gospel of Christ. It is not a Western religion, nor is it a message of one culture or political system . . . it is a message of life and hope for all the world."
When Reverend Graham gave the invitation for people to repent of their sins and receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior, people flocked to the front of the stage. Billy used his spiritual gift of evangelism to the fullest.
"I haven't written my own epitaph, and I'm not sure I should. Whatever it is, I hope it will be simple, and that it will point people not to me, but to the One I served." Billy Graham
