A Simple Message

By   •   January 3

The great Swiss theologian, Dr. Karl Barth, was probably in his generation the greatest theologian in the world, and a great philosopher as well. I did not always agree with him, but he was my friend and I respected him. While he was in this country, a student at one of the seminaries said, “Dr. Barth, what is the greatest truth that ever crossed your mind?” All the seminary students were sitting on the edge of their seats to hear some great, profound, deep, complicated answer. Dr. Barth slowly raised his great shaggy gray head and looked at the student and said, “Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so.”

Have you accepted this simple truth? Follow these simple steps to peace with God.

Prayer for the day

Lord Jesus, may I always keep the knowledge of Your love in true simplicity—unencumbered by much learning. Thank You for loving me.

    Even after all these years of seeing and hearing you on TV, I still cannot change the channel once I discover you are speaking. I always ask for forgiveness and ask God to also take me’ “as I am”. You never cease to make my prayer to Him so moving. Tearfully, joyously feeling saved! May God continue to watch over you and yours. May His truth never stop being heard from your lips!

    Brother Billy, I went to Church and hear a pastor speak on this Chapter, John 15. This is really a confirmation, a conviction and a blessing.

    Dr Rev Billy Graham, you have always been an inspiration to me. You have always kept the message of salvation simple for children to understand, like our Savior spoke to educated as well as children.
    My grandmother, parents, my husband & I would love to watch your crusades on TV, as you shared about God’s love and plan of salvation through His son, Jesus Christ, all over the world. I have always respected you for your integrity, compassion for souls, and love for our Lord.
    May God continue to bless you and your family! Love you!
