How many of you know who Billy Graham is?

OK, so that's not exactly Bible trivia, but today I thought I would write about something I heard in the sermon last Sunday . . .
 When my pastor (& husband :-) asked this question on Sunday, all but 3 people raised their hands (they were teenagers that didn't grow up in the era of Billy Graham Crusades).  My husband then asked, "How many of you actually know Billy Graham?  If someone mentioned your name to Billy, would he know who you are?"  No one raised their hands.  My husband went on to say that this is the difference between knowing who Jesus is and KNOWING Jesus.  You may attend church every Sunday and be able to say that Jesus is the Son of God and died on the cross, etc, etc.  But when you stand before Him on judgement day, will He know you?  Read Matthew 7:21-23.
