Everyone knows the name of Billy Graham. But do you know Mordecai Ham?
He is the evangelist that was preaching when Billy came forward and accepted Jesus as Savior.
Everybody has someone that precedes them – that paves the way for them. Billy Graham, DL Moody, Tony Evans, or Chuck Swindoll all had someone that paved the way before them and help lead them to Christ.
Even Jesus had someone go before Him.
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. Mal 4:5
That was fulfilled in the person of John the Baptist.
John’s father, Zacharias was told,
He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,’ and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. Luke 1:17
Today you will go before someone. Will you pave the way to the Lord for them? Will you show the way?
Think about that before you act or say something today. You may be just the person to lead the next Billy Graham to Christ.
Abba, use me to point the way for others. In Jesus name, YES&AMEN
