21Wilberforce: Eyes on Eternity
"Billy Graham was one of the most profound faith leaders of our time. His preaching and teaching impacted millions, from the common man to world leaders. His witness impacted me personally. I made my commitment to accept Jesus Christ as my savior at a Billy Graham rally in the early 1960s. Over the years I read his books. While in Congress, I was blessed to hear him speak several times when he came through Washington, and once he visited our small Members’ Bible study in the Capitol.
"Billy Graham lived his life with eyes on eternity. He shared the good news of the gospel boldly and abundantly. While we grieve the loss of his presence, our hearts are not sad this day because his was a life lived well and full with the grace of God. To paraphrase his own words, we can celebrate knowing that his last breath here with us, was his first breath in heaven."
