“After spending half of my life working in the business world, storing up earthly treasures, I felt God call me to full time Christian service. He made it clear to me that He wanted the second half of my life to be spent working for Him, storing up treasures in Heaven. He confirmed this first through my wife, then during my studies in seminary, and finally as I served as a lay minister at Riverland Hills.
Because of the certainty I have in Christ, I enjoy helping people during the difficult times of their lives. Since difficulties know no age limit, I love being able to point people of all ages to God. We all need to know that ‘God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble’ (Psalm 46:1). I’ve also observed that the best way to prepare for life’s difficulties is to have as close of a relationship with God as possible. Personal engagement with Scripture is absolutely essential to this. Scripture IS truth. Because of this, I have a great love of the Bible – reading it, teaching it, and living it. Scripture comforts us in times of trouble, but even more importantly, it clearly shows us that the way to God is through His Son Jesus.”

The Holiness of God by R. C. Sproul
Colossians. The apostle Paul reminds us in this letter to keep Christ at the absolute center of everything because He is everything. Nothing in life matters as much as He does. God – through Christ – ‘rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of His dear Son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins’ (1:13-14). Paul tells us to set our ‘sights on the realities of Heaven’ (3:1). We are told to ‘clothe ourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony’ (3:14). Then we are told to ‘devote ourselves to prayer’ (4:2).
