Tim Keller — to depart and be with Christ is far better

Like RC Sproul five and a half years ago, Pastor Tim Keller has gone to be with the Lord today. And just like Dr. Sproul, I felt saddened, almost like one would for a family member. Afterall, we are family in Christ.

Coincidentally enough, “I’ll Be Missing You” just randomly played on my Spotify right now. No such thing as coincidence in God’s grand design.

I will miss your culturally-relevant gospel proclamation, your helpful exegesis, your uncommon concern even among pastors for social and justice issues, and above all, your love for the Lord and his flock. See you in paradise, brother.

22 If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me. Yet which I shall choose I cannot tell. 23 I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better.
