The Intrusion of Glory: R.C. Sproul Goes Home

Our hearts are profoundly saddened this afternoon after receiving the news that R.C. Sproul went home to be with the Lord at about 3 p.m., surrounded by his loving family. He has been such a huge part of our lives for so many years that a gaping hole will be felt for some time to come. Already, many of his friends are writing heartfelt tributes chronicling the impact he left on their lives and ministries.

Dr. R.C. Sproul, 1939 – 2017

Chris Larson writes:

R.C. now sees the object of his faith, the risen Christ, high and lifted up. He now hears the seraphim’s song before the throne, “Holy, holy, holy the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!

I was just finishing up his series, “The Coming of Messiah” as the news of his passing came. In the last message, R.C. spoke of glory intruding the fields outside of Bethlehem the night Jesus was born. I believe R.C. is now rejoicing that glory intruded his hospital room and brought him safely home to his Savior.

    1. Thanks Bill. In a strange way, it feels a little like losing a parent. But I guess there’s a sense in which we have done just that. He was a father in the faith for so many.
