Throughout his more than 60 years in ministry, the Rev. Billy Graham has spoken frequently of the concepts surrounding love — one of the most frequently mentioned words in the Bible.

Some of Graham’s most prolific quotes on the concept of love are encapsulated in an essay, “Without Love We Are Nothing.” It was published in 2011 in the Billy Graham Evangelist Association’s Decision Magazine.

Here are eight times Graham spoke about God's love and loving others.

1. "This is the hour for the church to show forth the love and grace of God! This is the hour for the world to hear Christ saying through the church, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life.'"

2. "The Bible declares that we who follow Jesus Christ should be just as much in love with each other as God was in love with us when He sent His Son to die on the cross."

3. "The basic attribute of God is holiness, but love is another basic attribute of God. It is a part of God’s nature to love, and all who know Jesus Christ as Savior also have this supernatural love instilled within their hearts by the Holy Spirit. The greatest demonstration of the fact that we are Christians is that we love one another."

4. "No man ever loved like Jesus. He taught the blind to see and the dumb to speak. He died on the cross to save us. He bore our sins. And now God says, 'Because He did, I can forgive you.'"

5. "When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, 'I love you.'"

6. "I might know the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, but if I had not love, it would mean absolutely nothing in the sight of God."

7. "I might be a man of great faith. The Bible says that I might have faith so that I could move mountains, but if I have not love, it is nothing."

8. "Only this divine love that God gives will make us love others, and before we have revival in America we must have that kind of love among God’s people."
