Billy Graham Quotes

On February 21, the Reverend Billy Graham passed away. Throughout his life, Billy Graham’s words of faith reached across the globe, undoubtedly making him one of the most influential spiritual voices of our time.

Here are just some of the words of wisdom he shared with us in his lifetime….

About Faith and Being a Christian

“Read the Bible. Work hard and honestly. And don’t complain.”

“Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.”

“A real Christian is the one who can give his pet parrot to the town gossip.”

“Faith, more than fighting, can change the course of events today.”

About the Bible

“I’ve read the last page of the Bible. It’s all going to turn out all right.”

“The very practice of reading [the Bible] will have a purifying effect upon your mind and heart. Let nothing take the place of this daily exercise.”

“Reading God’s Word and meditating on its truth will have a purifying effect upon your mind and heart, and will be demonstrated in your life. Let nothing take the place of this daily privilege.”

“We need to encourage new believers to feed on God’s Word—it is nourishment for the soul.”

About God

“God is more interested in your future and your relationships than you are.”

“God never takes away something from your life without replacing it with something better.”

“God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, ‘I love you.'”

“Don’t ever hesitate to take to [God] whatever is on your heart. He already knows it anyway, but He doesn’t want you to bear its pain or celebrate its joy alone.”

About Loving Others

“It is the Holy Spirit’s job to convict, God’s job to judge and my job to love.”

“God has given us two hands–one to receive with and the other to give with. We are not cisterns made for hoarding; we are channels made for sharing.”

“Many invest wisely in business matters, but fail to invest time and interest in their most valued possessions: their spouses and children.”

“Only God can give us a selfless love for others, as the Holy Spirit changes us from within. This is one reason we must receive Christ, for apart from His Spirit we can never be freed from the chains of selfishness, jealousy, and indifference. Will others see Christ’s love in your life today?”

About Prayer

“The most eloquent prayer is the prayer through hands that heal and bless.”

“Prayer is not just asking. It is listening for God’s orders.”

“Prayer is simply a two-way conversation between you and God.”

“Prayer is for every moment of our lives, not just for times of suffering or joy. Prayer is really a place, a place where you meet God in genuine conversation.”

About Heaven

“When we come to the end of ourselves, we come to the beginning of God.”

“No, I don’t know the future, but I do know this: the best is yet to be! Heaven awaits us, and that will be far, far more glorious than anything we can ever imagine.”

“My home is in Heaven. I’m just traveling through this world.”

“God will prepare everything for our perfect happiness in heaven, and if it takes my dog being there, I believe he’ll be there.”

“Heaven doesn’t make this life less important; it makes it more important.”

About Evangelism

“I just want to lobby for God.”

“I have never known anyone to accept Christ’s redemption and later regret it.”

“We are the Bibles the world is reading; we are the creeds the world is needing; we are the sermons the world is heeding.”

“Spend more time in study and prayer. That’s the secret of successful evangelism.”

“Whenever I counsel someone who feels called to be an evangelist, I always urge them to guard their time and not feel like they have to do everything.”

About Life

“Take one day at a time. Today, after all, is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.”

“If a person gets his attitude toward money straight, it will help straighten out almost every other area in his life.”

“Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened.”

“The legacy we leave is not just in our possessions, but in the quality of our lives. The greatest waste in all of our earth, which cannot be recycled or reclaimed, is our waste of the time that God has given us each day.”

“Every area of our lives is to be under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. And that means the searchlight of God’s Word must penetrate every corner of our lives.”
