"The Integrity of Billy Graham"
“Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone." Mark 16:15
Billy Graham preached the message of Christ’s freedom and forgiveness around the world, reaching over 200 million people in more than 185 countries. He led hundreds of thousands of people to pray to receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. His integrity and wisdom opened many doors to share the Good News with people from all walks of life, including world leaders.
Billy Graham was named by Americans as "One of the Ten Most Admired Men in the World,” a record-breaking 59 times with the Gallup poll.
The phrase, “the Bible says,” resounds throughout his sermons. Billy Graham preached God’s Word with conviction and passion for over 60 years. Here are just a few of his words of wisdom. I hope they inspire your faith and witness.
“My home is in Heaven. I’m just traveling through this world.”
“God proved his love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, ‘I love you.’”
“The cross shows us the seriousness of our sin—but it also shows us the immeasurable love of God.”
"The only hope for enduring peace is Jesus Christ."
"God has given us two hands, one to receive with and the other to give with."
“When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost.”
“Knowing we will be with Christ forever far outweighs our burdens today! Keep your eyes on eternity!”
“Our society strives to avoid any possibility of offending anyone – except God."
"We have largely lost sight of the holiness and purity of God today. This is one reason why we tolerate sin so easily."
"Mountaintops are for views and inspiration, but fruit is grown in the valleys."
"The will of God will not take us where the grace of God cannot sustain us."
"Preachers are not salesmen, for they have nothing to sell. They are bearers of Good News."
"I’ve read the last page of the Bible, it’s all going to turn out all right."
