Billy Graham Preaching For Over Four Decades!
Here is something I would like you to consider: Billy Graham has been pointing people to Jesus Christ for over four decades. I am amazed how he has been given the gift of evangelism and preaching. We have been blessed to have had Billy Graham sharing the gospel with the entire world for all of these years!
There are many great preacher and teacher of God’s word, but I would have to say that in my own humble opinion that Billy Graham was one of the greatest and he was blessed to have reached the most people almost 7 decades of his ministry. I thank God for how He used Billy Graham all of those years! ~ Bill Greguska
Matthew 28:19-20 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Billy Graham Quote:
Make sure of your commitment to Jesus Christ, and seek to follow Him every day. Don’t be swayed by the false values and goals of this world, but put Christ and His will first in everything you do. ~ Billy Graham

Billy Graham and his impact on the world for Christ!
Shortly Before Billy Graham’s 16th Birthday
Billy Graham attended a tent revival service in Charlotte, N.C., Where he heard the evangelist Mordecai Ham speak. The following is his account of what happened: I became deeply convicted of my sinfulness and rebellion. And confused. How could this evangelist be talking to me, of all people? I had been baptized as a baby, had learned the Shorter Catechism word perfect, and had been confirmed in the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church with the full approval of the pastor and elders. I had gotten into mischief once in a while, but I could hardly be called wicked.
I resisted temptations to break the moral code my parents had so strictly instilled in me. I was a good milker in the dairy barn and never complained about any of the dirty work, such as shoveling manure. I was even the vice president of my youth group in our church (although granted, it wasn’t a particularly vital organization).
God knows what we are going through when we grieve, and He wants to assure us of His love and concern. He also wants us to turn to Him and bring our heartaches and burdens to Him. ~ Billy Graham
I asked why the evangelist would always be pointing his bony finger at me. What was slowly dawning on me during those weeks was the sad realization that I did not know Jesus Christ for myself. Romans 10:9-10 I could not depend on my parents’ faith. Christian influence in the home could have a lasting impact on a child’s life, but faith could not be passed on as an inheritance, as the family silver. It had to be exercised by each person individually.
Is Jesus Going to Come Back Today?
I Could Not Depend on My Resolution to do Better.
I consistently failed in my efforts at self-improvement. Nobody needed to tell me that. As a teenager, what I needed to know was that I was right with God. I could not help but admit to myself that I was purposeless and empty-hearted.
Our family Bible reading, praying, psalm-singing, and churchgoing—all these had left me restless and resentful. I had even tried, guiltily, to think up ways of getting out of all those activities as much as I could. In a word, I was spiritually dead.
No Bells Went Off Inside Me.
No signs flashed across the tabernacle ceiling for Billy Graham. No physical palpitations made me tremble. I wondered again if I was a hypocrite, not to be weeping or something. I simply felt at peace. Philippians 4:6-7 Quiet, not delirious. Happy and peaceful.

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
