Billy Graham on Discipleship

This is the first in a series on discipleship that shares the insights of inspiring Christians on discipleship. The series includes the thoughts of Dr. Billy Graham, Oswald Chambers, C.S. Lewis, D.L. Moody, Archbishop Michael Ramsey, Charles H. Spurgeon. A.W. Tozer, Evelyn Underhill, and John Wesley.

"Salvation is free, but discipleship costs everything we have."
"Our minds must be set always to seek the will of the Lord. Following the progressive discipline revealed through the Bible will result in a walk of obedience to God.”
"Jesus Christ spoke frankly to His disciples concerning the future. In unmistakable language, He told them that discipleship means a life of self-denial, and the bearing of a cross.”

"Many Christians want the benefit of their belief, but they hesitate at the cost of discipleship.”

“To be a disciple of Jesus means to learn from Him, to follow him. The cost may be high.”

“Let us always remember that Christ calls men and women not only to trust Him as Savior, but also to follow Him as Lord. That call to discipleship must be part of our message if we are to be faithful to Him.”
