Almost fifty years ago, Billy Graham preached a crusade in London, England in the once-famous Harringay Arena. Many Londoners came to hear Billy Graham preach.
As the story goes, two men were sitting in the stands and they were talking about the American evangelist. What was his motivation? Was he a money-grabber? Was he a sensationalist? Was it a cult? They didn’t know, but they were discussing him quite critically.
Billy Graham got up to preach, and God’s Holy Spirit of conviction fell. When they gave the invitation, one man turned to the other and said, “I don’t know about you, but I’m going forward to give my heart to Jesus Christ.” The other man said, “I’m going with you, and here’s your billfold. I’m a pickpocket.”
That is the power of the Word of God! Will you let it transform your life today?
