Here is an MP3 of a new friend of mine I met on the blogosphere this past week. His name is Tullian Tchividjian and he is pastor of New City Presbyterian Church in Coconut Creek, Fl. He is a gifted expositor of God's Word and I wanted to introduce him to all of you. This message is called, "Under the Influence" from Ephesian 5:18-21 on the theme of be-being filled with the Holy Spirit. It is an excellent message that I highly commend to you.
His local church is part of the EPC - Evangelical Presbyterian Church and holds to the Westminster Confession of Faith for its doctrinal foundations.
As you can see, his name is quite unusual, but rich in meaning and family heritage. You can read about his name and you just might be surprised who his grandfather is... What an answer to prayer to see another generation of godly men and pastors who are faithful expositional teachers be raised up for such a time as this.
Tullian is guest-blogging this week at Justin Taylor's excellent blog - "Between Two World's."
May I encourage you to continue to pray for pastor Tullian, his family, local church, and the ministry that God would continue to honor his faithfulness to the Lord Jesus and His Word.
His Unworthy Servant in His Unfailing Love,
2 Cor. 4:5-7
