Will Graham, son of evangelist Franklin Graham and executive director of the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove, will deliver a Good Friday message that will be livestreamed from the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Will, who is also an associate evangelist with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, along with musical guest Aaron Shust, will offer a message of hope live beginning at 4 p.m. ET on Friday. A Spanish-language version will be available beginning at 7 p.m. ET at PazConDios.net.
“The cross changed everything,” Will Graham said. “If it wasn’t for the cross, we’d be isolated from God, we would still be estranged from God, without hope.”
Much like the coronavirus has spread across humanity in a matter of weeks, the disease of sin entered the human race when the first man and first woman disobeyed God. It has infected each of us and the world around us. But there is good news.
God so loved the world that He sent His only Son, Jesus, to conquer sin and to pay our sin debt. God’s gracious offer through Jesus Christ is to free us from sin’s burden and to give us eternity in perfect, unbroken fellowship with Him.
“The cross is what gives us hope because it tells us our sins have been dealt with once for all eternity,” Will said.
The Sunday morning after Jesus was crucified, Scripture teaches us that Jesus physically resurrected, demonstrating once and for all His power over death and all of creation.
“The resurrection is the exclamation mark on the death of Christ,” Will explained. “That’s why we call it Good Friday. … He died so we could live.”
