Franklin Graham To Liberty University Students: "Give It All To Christ, No Matter The Cost"

Franklin Graham, son of incredible evangelist Billy Graham, president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, and head of Samaritan's Purse global relief organization, addressed Liberty University students at this year's Convocation, encouraging them to be willing to "give it all" for their faith, no matter the cost.

"You have to be willing to turn your back and give it all," Graham said. "You have one life to live. Live it. Live it for Him, but there's a cost and price. And He requires you to make Him first in your life."

"We need an army of men and women who are willing to go and to follow the Lord Jesus Christ to the ends of the Earth," he continued. "Remember you have to love Him more than anything else in this world. No excuses."

"When you obey God's voice the blessing He pours out on you is incredible," Graham said, noting the tremendous blessings which flow from obedient faith. "But it starts with obedience. You got to give it all, no excuses. Just obey. That's what God wants."

Graham's speech to students was a part of Liberty's Global Focus Week, a semiannual event aimed at raising global awareness among the school's students, faculty, and staff.

"We love the Graham family," LU president Jerry Falwell, Jr. said, introducing Graham to the audience. "What Franklin has done with Samaritan's Purse is nothing short of miraculous. I'm so honored that Liberty continues to partner with Samaritan's Purse, most recently with sending a team of students to help with flood cleanup in North Carolina."
