“For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.”
Will Graham hasn’t seen it all, but he’s seen a lot. In his ministry travels around the world, the grandson of Billy Graham has encountered people and cultures as opposite as night and day.
Yet, they all have hungry souls.
In a new, five-part video Bible study, Redeemed—How God Satisfies the Longing Soul, Will Graham talks about what people on every continent are missing.
“[God] loves you with an overarching, eternal love, and He’s waiting to embrace you today,” Will Graham writes in the accompanying study guide.
The Bible study kit contains a DVD, along with teaching notes, discussion questions, Scripture and questions for personal reflection. The set is a companion to the evangelist’s first book, Redeemed: Devotions for the Longing Soul.
Will Graham has seen lonely people everywhere he’s gone. He’s met spiritual doubters and people imprisoned by their own sin guilt, thinking God could never love them.
“The problem is, we live in an age where sin is no longer something to be repented of but something to be celebrated,” he writes. “Ours is such a sin-soaked culture that many of us don’t even know what the word means anymore.”
For those who realize and admit their sin, God is willing to forgive. In the Redeemed study guide, Will shares miracles he’s witnessed as people find forgiveness in Christ.
“Every time I offer an invitation to begin a relationship with Jesus Christ, and people accept that hope and surrender their lives to Him, I see those who were once dead brought to life. I see the miracle of broken, hurting individuals finding peace and rest. I watch as tears stream down the faces of longing souls who finally understand they can be forgiven and spend eternity with Jesus—not because of anything they can do but because Christ’s sacrifice has made a way.”
There truly is hope for everyone, no matter their past behavior.
“We serve a Savior who is bigger than the sin in our lives—and who is ready to forgive us if we give our brokenness over to Him,” Will Graham explains. “He is the One who satisfies the deep longing of our soul. He fills that empty void with His goodness. It’s not more stuff. It’s not more work. It’s not harmful vices. It’s Jesus!”
