The ordained Southern Baptist minister who led over 400 crusades, preached to over 215 million people, and witnessed over 2.2 million people respond to the gospel was pleading with people to repent of their sins right up until the day he died.
Watching vintage footage of Graham’s messages over the years, it was a clear portrayal of how the preacher’s message regarding the gospel never changed. The almost 100-year-old’s last message not only stayed true to God’s words in the Bible, but simply explained the sacrifice Jesus made in order for you to receive the gift of salvation.
It was during his teenage years that Graham gave his life to Jesus. He shared how he grew up in a Christian household, but it wasn’t until he heard evangelist Mordecai Ham that the Lord placed him under great conviction. “I came just as I was with all of my sins, all my failures, and the Lord received me and changed me. That has transformed me until this day. I’ve never been the same,” he said.
