Today is Billy Graham’s 90th birthday. What a godly and consistent testimony we have had through the remarkable life of this man. His life and ministry have impacted countless thousands of lives. He was born on November 7, 1918 in North Carolina, my home state and birth place. As a fellow Tarheel, I grew up under the influence of Dr. Graham’s ministry through his brother-in-law (and evangelist), Leighton Ford.
Tullian Tchividjian, a grandson of Billy Graham has written a small, insightful tribute to his grandfather. Tullian, with his unique perspective writes, “Today we celebrate his life and the way he has spent it. He has preached the gospel of Jesus Christ to more people than anyone in history and I have the pirivlege of calling him “Daddy Bill.”
May we all thank our Lord and Savior for such a faithful man of God. May we all, by God’s grace, keep the gospel central in our lives and ministries and for the sake of His glory finish well!
