Franklin Graham says 1,7 million people have accepted Jesus this year through his online ministry

“I think there is nothing normal in 2020. We have never gone through a pandemic in our life. The world has never been locked down before. It is God who touches people's hearts and opens their eyes. The pandemic has not stopped him. If anything, she has moved her kingdom forward. "

LPastor Franklin Graham, president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), told the Christian post that in 2020, 1,7 million people gave their lives to Christ in 2020 through their online ministry.

A marked increase compared to last year (1,3 million people accepted Christ in 2019) and this despite the pandemic which, on the contrary, seems to lead people to turn to Christ.

“I think there is nothing normal in 2020. We have never gone through a pandemic in our life. The world has never been locked down before. It is God who touches people's hearts and opens their eyes. The pandemic has not stopped him. If anything, she has moved her kingdom forward. "

The pastor pointed out that many people's hearts have “softened” as we maneuver together through the many obstacles of 2020. He explains that in the face of fear, many people are now ready to receive the gospel.

“People's hearts have softened a bit. People who don't listen before, listen now. For evangelism, this is perhaps one of the best years we have had. I think they're ready to hear the Gospel. People are afraid and afraid. When you give them the hope that we have in Jesus Christ, they are eager to accept it. When the world turns upside down, that's when they are eager to listen. "

A message that echoes the one he posted yesterday on his Twitter account, inviting Christians to take this opportunity to share Jesus' message of “peace” and “love”.

“This pandemic has had many side effects, but it is also an opportunity for the disciples of Jesus Christ to share the reason for the hope that resides in us. His peace, strength, and love can help people weather every storm in life, even a global pandemic. "
