“I received Christ into my heart and my life began to change. But it was a gradual change. And I didn’t see any flashing bulbs. I didn’t hear any thunder. There was no great emotional experience. It was just saying: Yes, Lord Jesus, I want you to be the lord of my life.”

 

Billy Graham

“I’m not a righteous man. People put me up on a pedestal that I don’t belong in my personal life. And they think that I’m better than I am. I’m not the good man that people think I am. Newspapers and magazines and television have made me out to be a saint. I’m not. I’m not a Mother Teresa. And I feel that very much.”

 

Billy Graham

“I’m glad to know that we do have political leaders that believe in God, and that has been true from the days of George Washington.”

 

Billy Graham

“I can’t explain 9/11, except the evil of man.”

 

Billy Graham

“I have many friends that don’t claim to be followers of Christ. As far as day-to-day friendship and being together at various functions, I don’t think that there should be any difference at all.”

 

Billy Graham

“Over the years I’ve seen people lose a spouse and then withdraw and lose interest in life, and I believe we need to resist that.”

 

Billy Graham

“Tim Keller’s ministry in New York City is leading a generation of seekers and skeptics toward belief in God. I thank God for him.”

 

Billy Graham

“There is a vast difference between intellectual belief and the total conversion that saves the soul.”

 

Billy Graham

“Some believe strongly that each Christian may have his own guardian angel assigned to watch over him or her.”

 

Billy Graham

“Those are decisions only the Lord will make. I believe the love of God is absolute. He said he gave his son for the whole world, and I think he loves everybody regardless of what label they have.”

 

Billy Graham

“There are nine orders of angels, to wit, angels, archangels, virtues, powers, principalities, dominations, thrones, cherubim, and seraphim”

 

Billy Graham

“The farther we get from God, the more the world spirals out of control. My heart aches for America and its deceived people. The wonderful news is that our Lord is a God of mercy, and He responds to repentance. In Jonah’s day, Nineveh was the lone world superpower-wealthy, unconcerned, and self-centered. When the Prophet Jonah finally traveled to Nineveh and proclaimed God’s warning, people heard and repented. I believe the same thing can happen once again, this time in our nation. It’s something I long for.”

 

Billy Graham

“Sometimes I’m asked to list the most important steps in preparing for an evangelistic mission, and my reply is always the same: prayer… prayer… prayer.”

 

Billy Graham

“After I graduated from high school, one of the former workers on our farm asked if I would be willing to join him in selling Fuller brushes through the summer. It seemed like a perfect way to make some money for college. And being away from my parents and learning to make my own way gave me self confidence.”

 

Billy Graham

“In my family we got up in the mornings around three o’clock and went out to the barns to bring the cows in and milk. In high school I milked about twenty cows every morning and about twenty in the afternoon when I got home. I have wonderful memories from those early days when my parent’s influence was so strong.”

 

Billy Graham

“The thing that I remember the most in my childhood was the love of family and the discipline in the family. My father and mother both were disciplinarians, and they didn’t mind using the rod. Maybe because I was the oldest child I always felt I got much more of it than anybody else.”

 

Billy Graham

“I’d grown up in a Presbyterian church, but I really didn’t know Christ personally in my heart. I knew him, but I didn’t know him. And there’s a difference between an intellectual faith and a personal, heart faith in which I opened my heart to him and let him rule my life.”

 

Billy Graham

“I’m not an analyzer. I’ve got a son that analyzes everything and everybody. But I don’t analyze people.”

 

Billy Graham

“Much of the philosophy of religious education has been based upon a false premise, and perhaps many have missed the essence of Christian experience, having had religious training take its place.”

 

Billy Graham

“The world’s favorite verb is ‘get’. The verb of the Christian is ‘give'”
