During an interview on NBC on the “Megyn Kelly TODAY Show” anchor Kathie Lee Gifford was on to honor the memory of the late Billy Graham and while there, Kelly revealed that Gifford has been witnessing to her about God behind the cameras.
“Billy was really one of a kind,” Kelly said during her interview with Gifford. “When I look back at what he preached after 9/11 saying, ‘The lesson here is our need for one another.'”
Kelly highlighted the message of sin and redemption Graham left with former president Bill Clinton in the middle of his Monica Lewinsky scandal. The host admitted that she also holds Gifford in high regard because she likens her to the world renowned minister, Graham, who peacefully passed away Wednesday in his North Carolina home. He was 99.
Kelly said to Gifford, “You and I have been having an ongoing conversation about faith and a connection with God.”
“Who [else] is there today that has his kind of message? That uplifting, joyful, faithful, help me get reconnected, don’t shame me, don’t guilt me, someone who’s nonpartisan, someone who’s full of love, someone who’s not covered in scandal, not trying to rip anybody off,” she continued.
Gifford took the opportunity to continue Graham’s legacy right there and then while on Kelly’s program. The Emmy Award winner spoke openly of the free gift of salvation as Kelly looked on in admiration.
As for why she is so bold in speaking about her faith, she said, “If you had the cure for cancer, would you keep it quiet? … I always say I have the cure for the malignancy of the soul. And He has a name and it’s Jesus.”
Forget titles of the five fold ministry, since some argue a woman should not teach or preach. However, I believe the heavens are rejoicing that someone through the boldness of Gifford on a national platform reaching out to millions, made a choice to come back home to the Father.
You may be reading this and feeling like your life is not in line with the word of God and possibly feeling a disconnect and that something is missing from your life. I want to tell you of a name that is more powerful than any other name and that name is Jesus.
John 3:3, “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (see Romans 3:23). The wages of sin is spiritual death, which is separation from God:
Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Now for the good news…
What does it mean to be saved?
When you are saved, you are as they say, born again! You are considered a new creation:
2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
You are adopted or born into the family of God… a royal family!
1 John 3:1, “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.”
Your sins are removed from you and canceled from your account… in other words, you are FORGIVEN!
- Trust Jesus Christ today!
- Admit that you are a sinner and that you need God’s help.
- Be willing to change your mind and turn from your sin (repent).
- Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead.
- Through prayer, invite Jesus into your heart to become your personal Lord and Savior. …
Salvation is free and available for you and I. If you feel convicted in your spirit and would love this free gift of life eternal, simply say this little prayer with me and email/contact us after. We would love to connect with you!
Prayer of Salvation
I believe that you died on the cross for me, to save me. You did what I could not do for myself. I come to you now and ask you to take control of my life; I give it to you. From this day forward, help me to live every day for you and in a way that pleases you.
I love you, Lord, and I thank you that I will spend all eternity with you.
