Video: Billy Graham on Sermon Preparation

This is only a short video, but there is much to challenge every pastor in this video from Billy Graham on sermon preparation, preaching, and the pastor’s devotional life.

Here’s 7 quotes that stood out to me:

  • “If I didn’t have a systematic life I couldn’t go on. I couldn’t have a ministry.”
  • “Does anybody dread your prayers or mine?”.
  • “The students want to be committed to something but they don’t know what”.
  • “Every time I’ve preached on the blood of Christ, He’s honoured it. Every time I’ve preached on the cross, He’s honoured it.
  • “If you don’t preach the cross and the gospel, you don’t have a gospel.”
  • “Preach it with authority. Preach it to a decision.”
  • “I have never given an invitation, but once in my life, where no one came”.

    “…systematic [devotional] life…”

    The quote needs the word ‘devotional’.
