Billy Graham Quote

Think of the blessings we so easily take for granted:  Life itself; preservation from danger; every bit of healthy we enjoy; every hour of liberty; the ability to see, to hear, to speak, to think, and to imagine all this comes from the hand of God.

From 2 Corinthians 9:7:  “Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”

Our faith becomes stronger as we express it; a growing faith is a sharing faith.

From 1 Timothy 2:7:  “For this I was appointed a herald and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.”

Christ can put a spring in your step and a thrill in your heart.  Optimism and cheerfulness are products of knowing Christ.

From 2 Corinthians 13:11:  “Finally, brothers and sisters, farewell.  Put things in order, listen to my appeal, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.”

One of the great needs in the church today is for every Christian to become enthusiastic about his faith in Jesus Christ.

From Ephesians 6:7-8:  “Render service with enthusiasm, as to the Lord and not to men and women, knowing that whatever good we do, we will receive the same again from the Lord, whether we are slaves or free.”

Life is a glorious opportunity.

From Colossians 4:2-5:  “Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with thanksgiving.  At the same time pray for us as well that God will open to us a door to the word, that we may declare the mystery of Christ, for which I am in prison, so that I may reveal it clearly, as I should.  Conduct yourselves wisely toward outsiders, making the most of the time.”

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.”

From Joshua 1:9:  “I hereby command you:  Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Integrity is the glue that holds our way of life together.  We must constantly strive to keep our integrity intact.  When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost; all is lost.

From Titus 2:7-8:  “Show yourself in all respects a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, gravity, and sound speech that cannot be censured; then any opponent will be put to shame, having nothing evil to say of us.”
