The last will and testament of famous evangelist Billy Graham, who died at the age of 99 in February, has been released to the public.
In it, Graham calls his wife, Ruth, the “greatest Christian” he ever knew, and urges his family to uphold Jesus Christ no matter the cost.
WSOCTV.com shared a copy of the 16-page document on Friday, which begins with Graham describing in his own words how he found “joy and peace” in believing in God since he was a teenager.
“I ask my children and grandchildren to maintain and defend at all hazards at any cost of personal sacrifice the blessed doctrine of complete Atonement for sin through the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ once offered, and through that alone. I urge all of you to walk with the Lord in a life of separation from the world and to keep eternal values in view,” he states.
The evangelist urges his family to read the Bible on a daily basis and to trust in Jesus Christ as the means to Salvation.
Graham reflects that life on earth is short, and recalls his first date with Ruth in December 1940, less than three years before they were married.
“Because of Christ, your mother and I enjoyed a wonderful, thrilling, and joyous life together,” he adds, noting that like any couple, they also went through problems and burdens.
“I want to thank her for her years of devotion, love, faithfulness and sacrifice. Of all the people I have ever known, she was the greatest Christian,” he declares.
