    I really love Billy graham for his sincere heart towards God which led him to do such a tremendous ministry for God.

    I badly and really wanted to see him with mine own eyes, but could never efford to visit US or the BGEA as I am from a middle class indian family.

    I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil 4:13 Recently I heard a new take on my life verse. It’s not that I receive, or have the ability to do all things, but that Christ enables me to do what is Hus good & perfect will.

  20. Rose Bruton says:

    Romans 6:23
    For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (KJV)
    My eyes were opened to the Light of the Gospel of Christ when I heard this Verse Preached at Church in 1995.
    It was as if my whole world stopped.
    I thought the wages of sin was telling a Priest my sins & saying pennance prayers, or getting yelled at, or grounded- DEATH?!
    I suddenly remembered all of the sins I Thought I had gotten away with. I now realized God was there, He saw it all!
    I finally understood why Jesus went to the cross- He shed His blood and died –
    for me, for my sins.
    And 3 days later He rose from the dead!
    One day He will raise up my dead body also!
    I long to see Jesus my Lord and my Savior!

  21. Avia Delfri Liasina Br Ginting says:

    1 Peter 1:24-25 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
    But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
    Many things can make people happy but from now on I know that the word of the Lord can make happy, and I want to do the things make Jesus not the things make me happy, because if the things that make Jesus happy it will make me happy.

  22. Esme Bamblett says:

    I have so many favourite verses but one of them is John 14:6. “Jesus saith unto him I am the way, the truth and the life. No man cometh unto the Father but by me”

  23. Tisha Lemons says:

    Colossians 3:23
    Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not men.

  24. Johanna V says:

    My favorite verse is Genesis 18:10
    One of them said, “Nine months from now I will come back, and your wife Sarah will have a son.” Sarah was behind him, at the door of the tent, listening. The reason behind it is that I was dealing with 2 recurrent miscarriages and 2 days after the second miscarriage God gave me this word which I write down in post its everywhere so I could remember it. Sure enough 9 months to the date I was in the hospital giving birth to my baby.

  25. Geneva Chisholm says:
