‘Operation Andrew’

‘Andrew… first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, “We have found the Messiah.”’ John 1:40–41 NKJV

In the early days of his ministry, Billy Graham wanted to mobilise local Christians to bring their unsaved friends and relatives to his evangelistic meetings. So the Graham team devised ‘Operation Andrew’, a simple plan whereby church members listed the names of their unsaved friends, began praying for them, and invited them to Billy Graham’s crusades to hear the Gospel. Why the name ‘Operation Andrew’? Because each time we see Andrew in John’s gospel, he’s bringing someone to Christ. First he brought his brother, Peter. Then in John chapter six he brought a lad to Jesus who had five loaves and two fish. And in John chapter twelve he led a group of Greeks to Christ. And you can do the same.

Years ago a new Christian, twenty-four-year-old Albert McMakin, loaded his ute with friends and drove them every night to an evangelistic campaign in his city. Now, the chances are that you’ve never heard McMakin’s name before. But you’re probably familiar with one of his passengers in his ute, a young man who was converted to Christ that same week—Billy Graham. Andrew brought his brother Peter to Christ, and Peter ended up bringing multitudes to Christ. You just never know! The person you share your faith with today, or bring to church next Sunday, may be used by God to do things you never dreamed possible. And if you’ll do your part—God will do the rest.
