He was a unique combination of intelligence, knowledge, wisdom, humility, godliness, transparency, and humor. I was affected in a godly way by each one of these traits of his personality and character. Dr. Sproul was never intimidated by the gifts and talents of those around him; thus, he was always willing to complement others who have been gifted by the Lord.
My last memory of him is from 2016, when I had the privilege of interviewing him prior to our conference, Por Su Causa (For His Cause), which is held annually in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Right before the interview, Dr. Sproul looked somewhat tired, but as soon as we started talking about theology, his mood and demeanor changed dramatically. He came alive, and once again he was witty, articulate, insightful, and convincing. What a rare combination of qualities were present in this man of God.
I am grateful for what God gave to our beloved R.C. and his sharing of it with us. He will be remembered as one of the giants of the faith of our age. His legacy lives on here on earth as his soul lives on in the presence of the God he so loved during his ministry and now loves eternally. Thank you, Dr. Sproul, for helping me see the goodness of God even in the exercise of His justice—a God greater than our imagination, transcendent above His creation, and passionate for His glory. Until we meet again, Dr. Sproul.
