Top 40 Billy Graham Quotes To Know And Change Your Life

These are 40 of the best Billy Graham quotes: Some very inspiring words.

From Harry S. Truman to Barack Obama, Billy Graham counseled 12 consecutive presidents, reached more than 210 millions for Christ, and preached in more than 180 countries, and glorified our beautiful Lord Jesus Christ in countless ways.

Billy Graham quotes

Every single one his quotes do everything a Godly man’s quote could do:

They glorify God, they make you think of your situation with the Lord, they point you to higher social and justice issues that make us better human beings and children of God, and the most important of all: They point us to our beautiful Christ.

In addition, every single one of his quotes points us to deep underlying spiritual realities that most people don’t know, and that you must know (because they’ll affect your life whether you want them to or not).

So let’s start reading some of the most amazing Billy Graham quotes, one of the greatest evangelists in the world so far:
