Simple. Powerful. Truth.

Some years ago I had the opportunity to attend a Billy Graham Crusade.  I had heard about Billy Graham Crusades for years - how hundreds, even thousands came to know Jesus through them,  and now I was going to to see for myself what it was like.  Knowing so many people were saved at Billy Graham crusades, I couldn't wait to listen to his profound teaching.

 As I listened to his message, I remember thinking, "I haven't heard anything new; nothing that I haven't heard before."  I continued to listen, and as Billy Graham was closing his message, suddenly something began to stir inside me.  People all over the arena were streaming down to the front as Billy Graham invited them to come and give their lives to Jesus.  I was overwhelmed.  Tears came.  I discovered the "secret" of the Billy Graham crusades.  It is simple, really.  So simple that many miss it.  

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.  Hebrews 4:12-13

It is the power of God's Word.  It's not about how it is said.  It's the simple, powerful, message of the Gospel of Jesus.  

Simple. Powerful. Truth.

A couple of days ago I received an email from a parent.  She wanted to share an article her 5th grader wrote for a pretend newspaper on a school field trip that was distributed to all of the students.  Her daughter could choose anything to write about, and this is what she chose.  

Simple. Power. Truth.

The reason why I chose to write this article is because I thought everybody should know the word of God
