THOUGHTS FOR SUNDAY
In tribute to a mighty but humble servant of Jesus Christ, I would like to share some of his quotes from my Worship Bible, and make my prayer one of thankfulness for Billy Graham's faithfulness to his Lord and Savior and to the Word of God.
" Our valleys may be filled with foes and tears; but we can lift our eyes to the hills to see God and the angles, heaven's spectators, who support us according to God's infinite wisdom as they prepare our welcome home." ~ Billy Graham
"Christ made it clear that his coming , far from meaning peace, meant war. His message was a fire that would set society ablaze with division and strife." ~Billy Graham
"Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion ~it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ." ~ Billy Graham
"God proved his love on the cross. When Christ hung and bled and died it was God saying to the world ~~I love you. ~Billy Graham
"God does not discipline us to subdue us, but to condition us for a life of usefulness
and blessedness." ~Billy Graham
"It is contrary to reason for a thirsty person to turn from a pure, sparkling mountain stream to quench his thirst from a stale, putrid cistern ~~yet that is what the human race does when it rejects God's truth and standards in favor of the devil's impure philosophies." ~ Billy Graham
"It can be so easy at times to say we love people, and be completely honest and sincere in our expression. But so often we don't see the lonely person in a crowd, or the sick and destitute man or woman whose only hope of escape may be the love we can give through Christ. The love of God would have us reach down to each person. ~ Billy Graham
These wonderful quotes show just a tiny glimpse into the man of God. We love you, Billy Graham, you impacted our lives, and showed us Christ by your life and your ministry. We look forward to seeing you in heaven.
