William Ashley Sunday was a professional baseball player who gained notoriety for his prowess as an outfielder. However, he counted it all glory and left the sports after becoming a Christian. From then on, he became known as Billy Sunday, one of America’s most respected evangelists and defenders of the Gospel. He never sought fame or fortune and preached Jesus until the end of his life. Here is are my top 10 quotes from Billy Sunday:

We have a God who delights in impossibilities.

If you have no joy, there’s a leak in your Christianity somewhere.

Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes you an automobile.

More men fail through lack of purpose than lack of talent.

The backslider likes the preaching that wouldn’t hit the side of a house, while the real disciple is delighted when the truth brings him to his knees.

When is a revival needed? When carelessness and unconcern keep the people asleep.

There are two hundred and fifty-six names given in the Bible for the Lord Jesus Christ, and I suppose this was because He was infinitely beyond all that any one name could express.

If you don’t do your part, don’t blame God.

The reason you don’t like the Bible, you old sinner, is because it knows all about you.

The inconsistency is not in the Bible, but in your life.
