“Comfort and prosperity have never enriched the world as much as adversity has.”
Billy Graham
“Worship leader George Beverly Shea kidded Billy Graham that the latter would be unemployed in Heaven -- while Shea would still have a job leading worship.”
Billy Graham, Nearing Home: Life, Faith, and Finishing Well
“your faith and hope are in god.”
Billy Graham, Hope for Each Day: Words of Wisdom and Faith
“If God were to remove all evil from our world (but somehow leave human beings on the planet), it would mean that the essence of 'humanness' would be destroyed. We would become robots.

Let me explain what I mean by this. If God eliminated evil by programming us to perform only good acts, we would lose this distinguishing mark - the ability to make choices. We would no longer be free moral agents. We would be reduced to the status of robots.

Let's take this a step further. Robots do not love. God created us with the capacity to love. Love is based upon one's right to choose to love. We cannot force others to love us. We can make them serve us or obey us. But true love is founded upon one's freedom to choose to respond.”
Billy Graham, Hope for Each Day: Words of Wisdom and Faith
“You cannot come to Christ unless the Spirit of God brings you. But what if you ignore His warnings? Then you are in the gravest danger, for some day God will no longer be speaking to you. Then it will be too late. Come to Christ while there is still time. Christ, God's greater Ark, stands ready to welcome you to safety today.”
Billy Graham, Hope for Each Day: Words of Wisdom and Faith
“World events are moving very rapidly now. I pick up the Bible in one hand, and I pick up the newspaper in the other. And I read almost the same words in the newspaper as I read in the Bible. It’s being fulfilled every day round about us.”
Billy Graham
“Our relationship must be right with God before it can be right with man.”
Billy Graham, Billy Graham in Quotes
“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.”
Billy Graham, The Heaven Answer Book
“Some people have a warped idea of living the Christian life. Seeing talented, successful Christians, they attempt to imitate them. For them, the grass on the other side of the fence is always greener. But when they discover that their own gifts are different or their contributions are more modest (or even invisible), they collapse in discouragement and overlook genuine opportunities that are open to them. They have forgotten that they are here to serve Christ, not themselves.”
Billy Graham, Hope for Each Day: Words of Wisdom and Faith
“He lives in the hearts of those who trust in Him. Our confidence in life after death comes from these very truths.”
Billy Graham, The Heaven Answer Book
“We need to encourage new believers to feed on God’s Word—it is nourishment for the soul.”
Billy Graham, Billy Graham in Quotes
“The Lord is not only tender and merciful and full of compassion, but He is also the God of justice, holiness and wrath…Compassion is not complete in itself, but must be accompanied by inflexible justice and wrath against sin and a desire for holiness. What stirs God most is not physical suffering but sin. All too often we are more afraid of physical pain than of moral wrong. The cross is the standing evidence of the fact that holiness is a principle for which God would die. God cannot clear the guilty until atonement is made. Mercy is what we need and that is what we receive at the foot of the cross.”
Billy Graham, The Holy Spirit: Activating God's Power in Your Life
“Heaven gives us hope—hope for today and hope for the future. No matter what we’re facing, we know it is only temporary, and ahead of us is Heaven.”
Billy Graham, The Heaven Answer Book
“With a twinkle in his eyes, my friend says that his favorite prayer is, “Lord, give me patience—and give it to me right now!”
Billy Graham, Hope for Each Day Morning & Evening Devotions
“Strengthen your commitment to Christ—now. Don’t wait until the storms of temptation, or sickness, or old age threaten to blow you off-course; now is the time to strengthen your faith.”
Billy Graham, The Heaven Answer Book

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

War will be abolished. Nature will be changed. Man will live as it was originally intended he should live.”

Our Father and our God, You have made each of us unique and special. Show me how You want me to use the special talents You have given me to glorify You, Lord. Help me to hear and march to the heavenly drumbeat of Your Holy Spirit through Christ Jesus my Lord. Amen.”
Billy Graham
“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.”
Billy Graham, Billy Graham in Quotes
“Are you perhaps one of those who worries about having committed the unpardonable sin? If so, you should face squarely what the Bible says on this subject, not what you may have heard from others. The unpardonable sin is rejecting the truth about Christ. It is rejecting, completely and finally, the witness of the Holy Spirit, which declares that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who alone can save us from our sins. Have you rejected Christ in your own life, and said in your heart that what the Bible teaches about Him is a lie? Then I tell you as solemnly and as sincerely as I know how that you are in a very dangerous position. I urge you without delay to accept the truth about Christ, and to come to humble confession and repentance and faith. It would be tragic for you to persist in your unbelief, and eventually go into eternity without hope and without God.”
Billy Graham, The Holy Spirit: Activating God's Power in Your Life
“Old John Witherspoon, the only cleric to sign the Declaration of Independence, had this to say on the subject: “It is only the fear of God that can deliver us from the fear of man.”
Billy Graham, Unto the Hills: A Daily Devotional
“Evil is real—but so is God’s power and love.”
Billy Graham, Billy Graham in Quotes
“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.”
Billy Graham, Billy Graham in Quotes
“The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish Christian service. The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking out the lost and helpless.”
Billy Graham
