Billy Graham – Evangelist
Now, tonight I want you to turn with me to a familiar passage of Scripture, Galatians, the 6th chapter. Galatians the 6th chapter in the 14th verse.
Galatians 6:14: ‘But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.’
Just after the War, Cliff Barrows and I came together. He led the singing and I did the preaching, and his wife and my wife and the four of us went to England and we lived in England during the winter of 1946 and 47.
Now, London was almost totally devastated. And one of the things I remember is that in all that devastation after the war and all the rubble, there stood St Paul’s Cathedral. And on top of St Paul’s was a cross.
I remember when Coventry Cathedral was being built, because it had been destroyed during the war and it was nearing completion. A cross was lowered by helicopter and placed on the top. A huge 25-foot wooden cross stands above the fields of the buried horror of Belsen concentration camp.
A tiny cross placed there by Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to conquer the peak of mountains, is buried on the snow and the ice at the summit of Mount Everest.
