Billy Graham was known around the world for his strong faith in Jesus Christ. He trusted in the Lord, and he preached about the importance of surrender. Here are some quotes on the topic of faith from a man who lived in sync with what he preached.
“Faith literally means ‘to give up, surrender, or commit.’
Faith is complete confidence.”
“Discouragement is the opposite of faith.
It is Satan’s device to thwart the work of God in your life.”
“Christians who are strong in their faith grow as they accept whatever God allows to enter their lives.”
“I have never been to the North Pole, and yet I believe there is a North Pole. How do I know? I know because somebody told me. I read about it in a history book, I saw a map in a geography book, and I believe the men who wrote those books. I accept it by faith. The Bible says, ‘Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God’ [Romans 10:17 KJV].”
“The Bible teaches that faith is the only approach that we have to God. No man has sins forgiven, no man goes to heaven, no man has assurance of peace and happiness, until he has faith in Jesus Christ.“
“Fear can banish faith, but faith can banish fear.”
“Fear can paralyze us and keep us from believing God and stepping out in faith. The devil loves a fearful Christian.”
“If our faith isn’t rooted in the Bible, it will wither like a plant pulled out of the soil.”
“When our faith becomes nothing more than a series of rules and regulations, joy flees and our love for Christ grows cold.”
“Your faith may be just a little thread.
It may be small and weak, but act on that faith.
It does not matter how big your faith is,
but rather, where your faith is.”
