Billy Sunday
1862-1935

      Billy Sunday died in Chicago, November 6, 1935; services were held in the Moody Memorial Church with 4,400 present.

      "Take 15 minutes each day to listen to God talking to you; take 15 minutes each day to talk to God; take 15 minutes each day to talk to others about God."

      This young convert was deeply impressed and determined to make these the rules of his life. From that day onward throughout his life he made it a rule to spend the first moments of his day alone with God and God's Word.

      Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God.

       ca. 1910-1935 Dear Friend: You have by this act of coming forward publicly acknowledged your faith in Jesus Christ as your personal Savior.

SermonBroken Down Altars
      "He repaired the altar of the Lord that was broken down."-- I Kings 18:30 There is something more than history in the chapter from which my text is taken, just as there is always more in a picture than is seen at first glance. The state of affairs at this time the chapter opens was as bad as is possible for the human mind to conceive. The cou ...read
SermonGethsemane
      "And being more in agony, He prayed more earnestly; and His sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground" -- Luke 22:24 Infidels have seized upon certain verses of Scripture and have given as reasons for their unbelief that the statement therein contained did not agree with their opinion. One of these verses is the one t ...read
SermonHe That Winneth Souls is Wise
      (As preached in Richmond, Indiana, 1922) "He that winneth souls is wise." -- Proverbs 11:30 There are vast multitudes in this enlightened land of ours who are in open rebellion against God. "We will not have this man, Jesus Christ, to reign over us," is the heartless cry that winds its flight from office, shop, store, factory, home, college ...read
SermonMotherhood
      "Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages" -- Exodus 2:9 THE STORY OF MOSES is one of the most beautiful and fascinating in all the world. It takes a hold on us and never for an instant does it lose its interest, for it is so graphically told that once heard it is never forgotten. I have often imagined the a ...read
PamphletOutline of Plan of Work of the Prayer Meetings Committee

Mr. Sunday considers this the foundation for results desired for the campaign. The Organization in a Nutshell The territory has been divided into twenty districts: Manhattan, fifteen; The Bronx, five; ...read
SermonShew Thyself a Man
      "Be thou strong therefore, and shew thyself a man" -- 1 Kings 2:2 No one can read the Bible in a thoughtful way without being impressed with the fact that it makes much of manhood, and holds it up as something that should be sought after with diligence and perseverance. In fact the Bible exalts and emphasizes manhood in a remarkable way, and ...read
SermonSpiritual Food for a Hungry World
      "They need not depart; give ye them to eat." - Matthew 14:16. Some folks do not believe in miracles. I do. A denial of miracles is a denial of the virgin birth of Jesus. The Christian religion stands or falls on the virgin birth of Christ. God created Adam and Eve without human agencies. He could and did create Jesus supernaturally. I place no l ...read
PamphletSuggestions For Personal Workers

SermonTeach Us To Pray
      We live and develop physically by exercise. We are saved by faith, but we must work out our salvation by doing the things God wills. The more we do for God, the more God will do through us. Faith will increase by experience. If you are a stranger to prayer you are a stranger to the greatest test source of power known to human beings. If we cared ...read
SermonThe Curse of Liquor - Booze
      Here we have one of the strangest scenes in all the Gospels. Two men, possessed of devils, confront Jesus, and while the devils are crying out for Jesus to leave them, he commands the devils to come out, and the devils obey the command of Jesus. The devils ask permission to enter into a herd of swine feeding on the hillside. This is the only record ...read
SermonThe Devil's Boomerangs
      "Rejoice, 0 young man, in thy youth, and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thy heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment" -- Eccl. 11:9 "Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap" -- Galatians 6:7 You can always get the trut ...read
SermonThe Need For Revivals
      Somebody asks: "What is a revival? " Revival is a purely philosophical, common-sense result of the wise use of divinely appointed means, just the same as water will put out a fire; the same as food will appease your hunger; just the same as water will slake your thirst; it is a philosophical common-sense use of divinely appointed means to accomplis ...read
SermonThe Second Coming of Christ
      "Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

SermonTheater, Cards and Dance
      "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."--Gal. 6:7. I know of no more suitable text in all the Bible for the subject that I have in hand.

SermonUnder the Sun
      "What profit hath a man of all his labor which he taketh under the sun?" -- Eccl. 1:3 THIS question is asked and answered by King Solomon, and in our language it means about this: "What good does a man get out of life if he lives only for what this world can give?" If any man has ever been able to give the right answer to this great question, ...read
SermonWhat Shall I Do Then With Jesus?
       "What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ?"--Matt. 27:22. Nineteen hundred years ago a star poised above a lowly manger in Bethlehem and above the moonlit hills of Judaea the angels heralded the beginning of the life of Jesus Christ upon this earth--He who came to teach us the religion of human kindness, brotherly love and salvat ...read
