What is the most hopeful word in history? For Billy Graham, that word is Salvation.
Salvation from what? From our selfish and self-destructive selves. From the messes we get ourselves into. From the sin that has haunted humanity from the beginning of time and the evil that pulls us down every day. From the cultural deceits that blind us to God’s saving message. From the Hell so many don’t believe in. If we don’t think we need salvation, we’re fooling ourselves. If we think we are beyond salvation, we’re underestimating God. If we just don’t want to think about salvation, we’re putting ourselves in eternal peril.
