It was FALL 2012 — I was teaching a course at Columbia Int University entitled: Principles of the Christian Life: Ethics and Sanctification.
Robertson McQuilkin created this course during his presidency and his book on ethics and his book on the Holy Spirit came out of class handouts used with several generations of students. I had the privilege of being one of those students in 1978.
Now, 2012, I was asked to teach the course — a double honor. Robertson believed that ethics, what we should choose, and sanctification, walking in the power of the Spirit so we can choose well, needed to be together in one course. As far as I know CIU is the only school that frames the teaching of ethics in that way.
I invited Robertson to come as a guest to share how he practiced his daily love time with God and to answer questions from the students at a halfway point in the course. This 13 minute video is lifted from that class. Enjoy — and think about your alone time with the Grand Lover of your soul.
