Billy Graham


God has given us two hands, one to receive with and the other to give with. - Billy Graham                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Tears shed for self are a sign of weakness, tears shed for others are a sign of strength.

God proved his love on the cross , when Christ hung and bled and died, it was God saying to the world, I love you.

A real Christian is a person who can give his pet parrot to the town gossip.

The Christian life is not a constant high, i have moments of deep discouragement. I have to go to God in prayer with tears in my eyes and say "Oh God forgive me" or "help me"

Make sure of your commitment to Jesus Christ and seek to follow him every day. Do not be fooled by the false values and goals of this world but put Christ and his will first in everything you do.

Each life is made up of mistakes and learning and weakness and growing. Practicing patience and being persistent.

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

Only those who want everything done for them are bored.

Being a Christian is more than an instantaneous conversion. It is a daily process whereas you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Racial prejudice, anti semitism, or hatred of anyone with different beliefs has no place in the human heart or mind.

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

Everyday is a gift from God no matter how old we are.

Gods angels often protect his servants from potential enemies.

The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish Christian service. The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking the lost and helpless.

This is what God did. He took heavens best to redeem earths worst.

Most of us know about God but that's quite different from knowing God.

God doesn't comfort us to make us comfortable but to make us comforters.

Our society strives to avoid any possibility of offending anyone except God.

Every human being is under construction from conception to death.

My home is in heaven, i am just travelling through this world.

The great question is, will we be motivated by materialistic philosophy or spiritual power.

Even the securest financial plan and the finest health coverage are not enough to hold us steady when challenges come, we need something deeper and unshakable, something that will lead us through life's hard times.

I believe the greatest form of prayer is praise to God.

When wealth is lost nothing is lost, when health is lost something is lost , when character is lost all is lost.

I've read the last page of the bible and it all going to turn out alright.

The givers of the constitution meant we were to have freedom of religion not freedom from religion.

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

I used to read five Psalms everyday to teach me how to get along with God then i used to read a chapter of proverbs to teach me how to get along with my fellow man.

Read the bible, work hard and honestly and don't complain.

The new testament said nothing of apostles retiring and taking it easy.

 There is nothing wrong with men possessing riches it is when riches possess men. 

You are born, you suffer and you die, fortunately there is a loophole.

The wonderful thing is that our lord is a God of mercy and he responds to repentance.

Tho only time my prayers are never answered is on the Golf course.

We say to children 'act like grownups' but Jesus said to grownups 'act like children'

Sin is the second most powerful force in the universe for it sent Jesus to the cross, only one force is greater, the love of God.

We are not cisterns made for hoarding but channels made for sharing. 

Comfort and prosperity have never enriched the world as much as adversity has.

Its not the body's posture but the hearts attitude that matters when we pray.

Man has two great spiritual needs, one is for forgiveness the other is for goodness.

The one badge of Christian discipleship is not orthodoxy but love.

What really matters is how God see's me, He isn't concerned with labels, he is concerned with the state of my soul.

I think the bible teaches that homosexuality is a sin, but the bible also teaches that pride is a sin, jealousy is a sin, hate is a sin, evil thoughts are a sin, so i don't think that homosexuality should be chosen as the overwhelming sin that we are doing today.

Christ was God in human flesh and he proved it by rising from the dead.

Only the supernatural love of God through changed lives can solve the problems that we face in the world,
