Choices | Billy Graham Sermon

Today’s video from Billy Graham is all about choices and comes from the Book of Joshua, chapter 24.

Joshua gives his farewell address at Shechem. And, this is where he makes one of my favorite statements from the Bible. He says;

“..but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” ~ Joshua 24:15

He knows others are serving idols but tells them quickly who he chose.

Our Choices – Billy Graham Asks This Question

“But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”

Who will we serve? Will we serve the idols or God? Billy Graham asks us today which choice we will make.

The video shares a simple message. But, the message is super strong and makes us think.

Joshua was a great military hero who led the people to victories. And, he knew they were falling away.

He asked them who they would serve.

So, can we say; “As for me and my house..”? I sure hope we can.

With that said, let’s give thanks for the freedoms we have in America to worship — and just as Joshua did, serve the Living God.

In Christ,


If you have never made the commitment to receive the love and life-changing experience of Jesus Christ, please take a moment to Read John 3:16 to learn how.

  1. Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures and that he was buried and that he rose again the third day praying for everyone everyday God bless you all.

    1. Basically God took a very large truck and ran me over with it. I have believed in Him, sought Him, and called out to Him on many, many occasions. Way, way before that warning He gave me about me ending up in trap that would lead to me losing my life and all that He had for me. His light would barely penetrate my life, open my eyes, and set me free but rather I would continue to live in a state of confusion and isolation.

      Never in my right mind would I not choose Heaven along with marriage and others things concerning God’s purpose for me. Realistically, no one in their right minds would do that.

    2. I had to write multiple replies because this thing keeps blocking my replies with certain words or sentences in them for some reason.

      Healing, restoration, purpose, paying things forward and helping my aging mother, getting married and many other things have been thrown into the waste bin by Him. People who have spoken bad things over me or about me or done bad things to me have prevailed. Even members of His own flock. Things such as hitting me on the head on more than one occasion and telling me “You are a disgrace to the human race.” They have all been given the victory by God.

      A preacher whom I have watched and God had used to speak to me before that situation in June, spoke to me sometime after in a message where He said it was “impossible,” to live outside the Will of God (which I was not entirely sure of, as a confused individual with an unspecified brain condition) without consequences and that it is an insane thing for someone to know the will of God (I’m not sure about this part, don’t really remember what was said here), then die without Christ. There’s a point where he looks at the screen, and says “better should have never been born!” Up to that certain point in June, I had gotten my hopes up and believed there was a light at the end of the tunnel of this unfulfilling and purposeless life of mine and was then trolled last minute on account of my physical life and worst yet, my very soul.

      What has happened to me will be happening to many unaware people these last, terrible days. He will be discarding people like worthless trash and then handing them over to the forces of darkness (thus actually helping them). Like the wheat and tares deal. I am both really sad and angry. I am at a loss of words. I don’t know what to make of this.

      Read Job 14:1-12 and also 18-22 (New Living Translation) and 18:5-17, Psalms 8:4-5 and 68:2, Proverbs 5:18-19 and 31:10, Ecclesiastes 9:9 and 12:5 (New Living Translation), and Ezekiel 24:9-14 (New Living Translation).

      Also Mathew 5:13, 5:27-30, 6:7, 7:19, 7:21-22, and 13:47-50; John 15:6, Galatians 5:4, 6:7-8, and 19; Hebrews 6:4-6, 10:26-31 and 13:4 (English Standard Version); 1 Peter 4:18, 2 Peter 2:4-10 (New Living Translation), 1 John 5:16, and Revelation 22:15. You could read them in whichever version online.

      Another preacher said “If you are looking for God and He isn’t looking for you, then you’re damned…I’m sorry.” I have looked for him many times before that incident in June (when He was “looking” for me). Christ’s return is soon and I have been locked into a state where I can’t even be ready. I have been dragged into this BS love story from God for absolutely nothing! We are just His playthings that He can destroy as He pleases.

      God has been described by one preacher, as relentlessly stomping on a sinner, showing no mercy even as the person’s blood spatters onto His robe.

      If I am getting this right, consider yourself lucky and truly blessed that God has given you the capacity and the heart to serve and follow Him. To barely face any opposition or rut/trap. I could be wrong but He probably shown you His Will and gave you the chance both to see His will and to follow it. He shown you His way and allowed you to hold on to it.

      I am a single (never had a woman), 28 year old man who is now wasting away in a run down, third-world country. With no college degrees or any sort way of supporting myself. No relatives to support me other than my aging mother. Can’t travel. No direction, no plans, absolutely nothing.

  2. We would appreciate it deeply if anyone could pray for our daughter Candice 11 years old she was in emergency medical condition she is improving praise God we are grateful to God and the power of prayers can change everything praise God she desperately need your prayers please pray for her praying for everyone everyday God bless you all

  3. Now the Lord is that spirit and where the spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty praise God praying for everyone everyday God bless you all

  4. It is a blessing that Dr. Graham preaching was powerful than and powerful today. God Bless the Billy Graham archives and those who work to preserve the message of God.

  5. Amazing that this was held at a University then. Would it be allowed in today’s Universities? Oh Lord please send another
    public Preacher that speaks the truth.

  6. The proof that it is the WORD OF GOD!!SO
    ACURATE…SO TRUE….WE MISS HIM! But we will meet at HOME 🤗🤗🤗

  7. God Bless all of you that watch Pastor Graham. I pray we all remember to choose God for our life each day. Everyday pray and thank God, he gave His Son for us, so we can have eternal life. Thank you, Lord Jesus and help us to watch for you. Amen.

  8. We absolutely live in a time of choice making. It is not easy, but choosing to live by the power of God will be worth it.

  9. Please pray for my friend Kristel! She doesn’t know God. Pray that God would open her mind and heart to the truth which is in Jesus Christ and destroy satan’s lies and works in her life.

  10. “Turn us back to You, O LORD, and we will be restored; Renew our days as of old;”Lamentations 5:21

  11. When other pastors sell their sermons on CDs, DVDs, or in books, I find Billy Graham speaking for free on Youtube. We are so close to the end, and the world needs to hear the truth before it is too late. Thank you.

  12. One of the most amazing men who ever lived. Truly anointed by GOD to do the Lord’s work and spread the Gospel message.

    1. @Terrill Elliott That is somewhat racist to impune that on someone who had absolutely nothing to do with any of that and simply because he happens to be “white” to impune him in such a way? You might want to seek professional help if your world view is warped to this extreme. Either that or this is just a very bad troll attempt. Like “Why did the Germans bomb pearl harbor.”

  13. Amen, These classics have been a blessing to me and my family. I pray the message of the Gospel reaches all

  14. The word of God is still alive today as in the days of old,we need to constantly listen to the word of God until it takes root in our hearts,I thank God for his word preached by Billy Graham. The word of God still lives on even today.

  15. Pastor Billy Graham is awe inspiring. I never grow tired of his sermons, they are all full of God’s amazing grace.
