By His Wounds

Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted.   But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.   We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Isaiah 53:4-6

You who know what is right

But my righteousness will last forever, my salvation through all generations.”

They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Happy Birthday to Billy Graham!



I'd love to watch this. I grew up watching Billy Graham. I can still hear the music playing as people made their way to the front after accepting Christ as their savior. When I look back on my life it's neat to see how I wound up an Evangelical Christian.

All over the internet I see people wishing Billy Graham a Happy Birthday. Happy Birthday Billy Graham! You have blessed my life and helped shape my journey in Christ. Thank You!!
