Powerful Billy Graham Quotes – The Greatest Evangelist In History

Billy Graham is by far the greatest evangelist in history. He has won more people to Jesus than any other known. He has been the adviser to Presidents and world leaders. I believe that these Billy Graham quotes will bless you and stir you on in your faith in Christ.

Billy Graham’s Quote On Marriage

Ruth and I don’t have a perfect marriage, but we have a great one. How can I say two things that seem so contradictory? In a perfect marriage, everything is always the finest and best imaginable; like a Greek statue, the proportions are exact and the finish is unblemished. Who knows any human beings like that? For a married couple to expect perfection in each other is unrealistic. We learned that even before we were married. – Billy Graham

When I look back over the schedule I kept thirty or forty years ago, I am staggered by all the things we did and the engagements we kept. Sometimes we flitted from one part of the country to another, even from one continent to another, in the course of only a few days. Were all those engagements necessary? Was I as discerning as I might have been about which ones to take and which to turn down? I doubt it. Every day I was absent from my family is gone forever. Although much of that travel was necessary, some of it was not. – Billy Graham

Billy Graham Quotes On Relationships

Hot heads and cold hearts never solved anything. – Billy Graham

God has given us two hands, one to receive with and the other to give with. – Billy Graham

We are not cisterns made for hoarding, we are channels made for sharing. – Billy Graham

Billy Graham’s Advice To The Nations

The secret strength of a nation is found in the faith that abides in the hearts and homes of the country. – Billy Graham

Truth is timeless. Truth does not differ from one age to another, from one people to another, from one geographical location to another…the great all-prevailing Truth stands for time and eternity. – Billy Graham

Billy Graham Quotes On Children

The same principles and promises we applied to our children are still true for our grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We pray for each one each day and spend hours each week on the telephone with them. – Billy Graham

Love your children — and let them know you love them. Children who experience love find it far easier to believe God loves them. – Billy Graham

Billy Graham Speaks About Getting Old

Most of us, when we are young, think that we are never going to get old. I certainly admit feeling that way from time to time. … I know my time on earth will not be over until He calls me home. I admit I don’t like the burdens of old age—the slow decline in energy, the physical annoyances, the pain of losing loved ones, the sadness of seeing friends decline. But old age can be a special time of life, and God has lessons to teach us through it. – Billy Graham

Billy Graham Quotes On Character

The Christian life is not a constant high. I have my moments of deep discouragement. I have to go to God in prayer with tears in my eyes, and say, ‘O God, forgive me,’ or ‘Help me. ’ – Billy Graham

What does repentance mean? It means to change — to change your mind, change the way that you’re living — and to determine that with God’s help you will live for Christ. – Billy Graham

Certainly, one lesson is to remind us of our responsibility to be diligent in our service for God right now. I may not be able to do everything I once did (nor does God expect me to), but I am called to be faithful to what I can do. Another lesson surely is to make us realize in a fuller way that this world is not our final home. If our hope truly is in Christ, we are pilgrims in this world, en route to our eternal home in Heaven. – Billy Graham

About one thing I have absolutely no regrets, however, and that is my commitment many years ago to accept God’s calling to serve Him as an evangelist of the Gospel of Christ. – Billy Graham

Billy Graham Quotes On Prayer

It is not the body’s posture, but the heart’s attitude that counts when we pray. – Billy Graham

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

Billy Graham Quotes On Heaven

Nothing made by the hand of man has ever been so beautiful as starlight on the water or moonlight on the snow. And the same hand that made trees and fields and flowers, the seas and hills, the clouds and sky, has been making a home for us called heaven. – Billy Graham

I know that soon my life will be over. I thank God for it, and for all He has given me in this life. But I look forward to Heaven. I look forward to the reunion with friends and loved ones who have gone on before. I look forward to Heaven’s freedom from sorrow and pain. I also look forward to serving God in ways we can’t begin to imagine, for the Bible makes it clear that Heaven is not a place of idleness. – Billy Graham

Billy Graham Quotes On Evangelism

If you want to know what God is like, then take a look at Jesus Christ. – Billy Graham

God loves you and wants you to experience peace and life—abundant and eternal. – Billy Graham

God created us in His own image to have an abundant life. He did not make us as robots to automatically love and obey Him. God gave us a will and a freedom of choice. We chose to disobey God and go our own willful way. We still make this choice today. This results in separation from God. – Billy Graham

Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose from the grave. He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between God and people. – Billy Graham

We must trust Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and receive Him by personal invitation. – Billy Graham

About Billy Graham

Billy Graham Quotes featured image

William Franklin Graham Jr. was born in 1918. He became a famous evangelist in 1949 in Los Angeles when Randolph Hearst heard him speak and sent a note to his newspaper that said “puff Graham.” That means to promote what He is doing. Since then He has been the personal adviser to U.S. presidents and millions of everyday people who have heard him speak on radio and TV. I believe that he is worthy of being quoted.

For more information on Billy Graham, I encourage you to visit the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association or the Billy Graham Library.
