Who Gets the Glory?
Im not finished yet with Billy Grahams autobiography, Just As I Am, but my favorite quote thus far relates to who gets the glory for Billys ministry. Billy indeed became a celebrity, meeting with kings and queens, playing golf with U.S. Presidents, hob-knobbing with the wealthy and powerful.
After an amazing crusade in Australia, Billy tells the crowd, For what has happened in Australia, I want to give the glory and praise to GodI hope you will soon forget about us except to pray for us. When you take pictures and applaud, I know it is from your heart, but youre applauding the wrong person, youre taking pictures of the wrong person; Im here to represent Jesus Christ, the King of kings and the Lord of lords: to Him be the glory and the praise and the honor.
Its all about Jesus.
