Weekly Devotional ji
By James Mackenzie
A few days ago I had a talk with a|
student <'l' a seminary in Virginia:
that has consistently and bitterly op-j
posed the work of Billy Graham and|i
other evangelists. So smug wore the ,
authorities at the school that they in- ,
vited Billy to visit the campus and ad-j;
dress the student body, expecting to
make a fool of him in a questioning j i
period after the message. But there j(
was no questioning period. So im-|,
pressed were those present with the j
sincerity and humility of this conse
crated servant of Christ that the j
scheduled questioning period became'
a prayer period, arid the seminary has |,
been a different place since then.:]
“Even the professors have become
concerned about, their souls’ salya-J;
tion,” the student told .me. Well, 11,
thought, if Billy Graham, can do that,
he can do anything!
What is the secret of Billy Gra-,
ham’s success —or. rather, why doesj
God use Billy Graham? Secular au-|
thorities have tried to explain it by j
saying it is the way he holds his Bible, (
or his voice, or his advance publicity. <
Os course, it is none of these—God
doesn’t bless the mechanics of meth
ods. Billy Graham is being used of
God today because:
1. He is God’s man at God’s time !
in God’s place In times of stress and j
crisis, God always raises up a man to
call His creatures back to faith in j
Him. Such men were Noah, Abra- ]
ham. Joseph. Moses, Joshua, Samuel. ]
Isaiah and the prophets, John the
Baptist, John Huss, Martin Luther
John Calvin. John Wesley and D. L.
Moody. Following in this godly line,
Billy Graham is merely God’s chosen ]
prophet to call us back to faith in i
Him in these days of crisis and stress. 1
2. He is filled with the Holy Spirit. 1
By that I mean that he is God-con
trolled. He is so consecrated to Christ I
and His cause that the Holy Spirit *
who indwells every born-again saint, *
and whose office it is to magnify *
Christ, has complete control of Billy
Graham. Billy Graham is motivated j -
by one purpose only, and that to do !,
the.will of God. Arid after all. the ,
work of God, is done “not by might. |
nor by power, but bv :mv. Spirit, saith ,
the Lord of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6). j
J. He preaches the Bible as the’ >
verbally inspired, inerrant. living
Word of God. It is through the Bible,
and only through the Bible, that God
the Ho]y Spirit convicts men of sin,
righteousness, and judgment to "nine,
ami points them to saving faith in the
l ord Jesus Christ. There is no Chris-

;tian truth outside of the Holy Bible. I
! Billy Graham is used of God because
he is faithful to the written Word of
God. His messages are saturated
with quotations from the sacred page
(—usually preceded by the words, “The
Bible says ...” When a person lis
tens to Billy Graham he knows he is
hearing the Word of God, not just the
(word of Billy Graham.
| 4. Finally, he is undergirded with
■prayer—and this is the reason Billy
himself counts as most important,
|One of the secrets to revival is pray
er—much prayer—agonizing in pray
er. God never uses a man unless he is
ja man of prayer. It is only His faith
fulness in this, and the faithfulness of
j thousands of prayer-warriors through
out the world, that constitute, the real
(strength of Billy Graham,
I May Goil coritiniie to bless him, and j
I give him many more souls for his
hire. And. as vim and I, come to the
place Where we realize that each of
|iis is God’s person for some particu
jlar task, and yield to the Holy Spirit,
,and remain true to the Bible and tv
prayer, may He bless each of us and
j use us as soul-winners.

There’s no use losing any sleep
worrying about losing your hair—
for so far there is nothing that can
be done about getting bald.
Whether or not people lose their
hair is determined priniarjly by
their genes and not by their own
effort. " I

Gray hairs are not symptomatic
of baldness but merely lack the
special pigment for hair coloration.
I Most men lose about 60 hairs a
day, but, as the typical head con
tains 100,000 strands, it does not
make much difference if the
healthy scalp produces replace
i The first chemical clue to the
cause of baldness was recently dis
covered at the University of Penn
sylvania Medical School. Scientists
found that sebum, an oily sub
stance secreted by the scalp, con
tains hair-killing compounds. It
was previously regarded as an
agent that only lubricated the
scalp. The body’s sex hormones
are said to regulate the amount
and quality of sebum produced.
Experiments are under way to
determine what substances explain
why hair grows in most cases and
what can be done to prevent thin
ning in others. A prescription for
preventing baldness may be a
