Thank you, Billy Graham!

The annual theme at WCA this year is serving others and is based on Christ’s teaching found in Mark 10:43-45.   While it is human nature to define greatness as being “King of the hill”, Christ’s lesson and life remind us that in order to be great in God’s Kingdom, one must become the servant of all.  This theme is integrated into lessons and programs, and students and faculty alike are recognized regularly for their example of serving others to the glory of Christ.

The recent passing of Rev. Billy Graham provides another opportunity to reflect on this principle of Kingdom Living.  Rev. Graham is characterized as one who believed in Jesus Christ, sought to live his life in obedience to God’s Word, and proclaimed to all nations the Good News that Jesus Christ is the Savior.  Many tributes and articles about Billy’s life and testimony have been posted recently by those who have been impacted by his faithful ministry and servant’s heart.  A few years ago, a group of musicians collaborated to create a song to honor Rev. Graham.  May you be encouraged by this moving tribute to become great in God’s Kingdom by faithfully serving others.  Thank you, Billy Graham!
