Top 15 Memorable Quotes By Billy Graham

Billy Graham, the nation’s best-known Christian evangelist who wrote some 30 powerful books, preached to millions in crusades, pastor to presidents and did great things for the propagation of the Gospel for more than 60 years, died yesterday (Feb 21) at his home in Montreat, N.C. He was 99.

Let's reflect on some of his words today . . .

Quotes By Billy Graham


To start with, when I read about what New York Times and Christian Today wrote about Billy Graham, I was provoked;

Mr. Graham took the role of evangelist to a new level, lifting it from the sawdust floors of canvas tents in small-town America to the podiums of packed stadiums in the world’s major cities. He wrote some 30 books and was among the first to use new communication technologies for religious purposes. During his “global crusade” from Puerto Rico in 1995, his sermons were translated simultaneously into 48 languages and transmitted to 185 countries by satellite.
 Mr. Graham drew his essential message from the mainstream of evangelical Protestant belief. Repent of your sins, he told his listeners, accept Jesus as your Savior and be born again. In a typical exhortation, he declared: “Are you frustrated, bewildered, dejected, breaking under the strains of life? Then listen for a moment to me: Say yes to the Savior tonight, and in a moment you will know such comfort as you have never known. It comes to you quickly, as swiftly as I snap my fingers, just like that.” 
Mr. Graham always closed by asking his listeners to “come forward”. . .

“Someone asked me recently if I didn’t think God was unfair, allowing me to have Parkinson’s and other medical problems when I have tried to serve him faithfully. I replied that I did not see it that way at all. Suffering is part of the human condition, and it comes to us all. The key is how we react to it, either turning away from God in anger and bitterness or growing closer to him in trust and confidence.”
