The Call to Discipleship

8/22/2019

In chapter 9 of Luke, Peter comes to realize, with the help of the Holy Spirit, that Jesus is not one more in a row of prophets and teachers and sages. He says, “You are the Christ of God. You are the Messiah. You are the one who is bringing the kingdom of God, the ruling, healing, power of God, come back into the world.” What’s interesting is the minute his identity is revealed, he immediately begins to say, “Follow me.” Chapters 1 to 8 are all about, “Who is Jesus?” but we’re going to...

The Glory of Jesus

If you read Matthew, Mark, and Luke, you’ll always find at the climactic, pivotal place in the narratives of each of those gospels, the transfiguration is the final answer to a question that is continually posed in each of their early chapters. That question is … Who is this? “Who is this, that the wind and seas obey him? Who is this who forgives sins?” The transfiguration is the climactic answer in Matthew, Mark, and Luke. So to look at the transfiguration is one of the key ways you’re...

Faith in Jesus

8/16/2019

Jesus comes and heals what’s wrong within us and what’s wrong between us. We’ve talked about that previously. But now we ask, “What’s the ticket for that healing? How does that healing come into our lives?” The answer, of course, is a well-known answer. It’s faith, but what is faith? How does it come? How does it work? This whole chapter is about that. The two people he mentions are at the extreme ends of the social spectrum in that time and place. You have a woman of the street. You have a...

The Community of Jesus

8/14/2019
More
In the first part of today's passage, Luke 6:12-36, Jesus tells us about the promise of a true human community. In the middle part of the passage, he tells us about the components of this true community. At the very end, he shows us where we get the power for it. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on January 19, 2003. Series "The Meaning of Jesus Part 1; Understanding Him". Scripture: Luke 6:12-36. Today's podcast is brought to you by Gospel in...

The Message of Jesus

8/12/2019
More
What you get all the way through the first four chapters of Luke is that there’s a Savior coming, but he’s going to bring a salvation infinitely wider and deeper, more magnificent, and more multidimensional than anything anybody expected. Starting here in chapter 5, we have Luke spelling out what that is. These three incidents will show us how all-comprehensive and how multidimensional and full the salvation of Jesus is. In the first incident we see Jesus’ salvation transforms our...

The First Temptation of Christ

8/9/2019
More
Life is a fight. Life is a struggle. How are we going to survive, let alone triumph over that? The answer is in this very famous passage from the Gospel of Luke on Jesus’ temptation. Let’s ask three questions that will help us handle the fights of life. When is the fight? Where is the front? What’s our hope? This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on December 22, 2012. Series "The Meaning of Jesus Part 1; Understanding Him". Scripture: Luke 2:34-35;...

The Deity of Jesus

8/7/2019
More
The spiritual challenge of studying the incarnation is to hear the life-shattering, life-changing, enormous truths through the familiar texts and phrases read at Christmastime. But I would propose to you that you can still hear it. You can hear the claims of the doctrine of the incarnation, that God became in carne, in the flesh. God became human. The claim of that first gets in your face intellectually, then it gets in your heart transformationally. What do I mean by that? Let’s...

The Excellence of Jesus

8/5/2019
More
We’re looking at the life of Jesus in the book of Luke. We’ve said Luke claimed the things he was writing were true; they happened. That’s the first reason why anything is recorded in the gospel of Luke, because it actually happened. But there’s a second reason why he records these things. The second reason is that he wants us to have a relationship with God through Jesus. Though Luke doesn’t record everything, everything he does record is there to teach us something about how to encounter...

The True Story of Jesus

8/2/2019
More
Right from the start, Luke immediately deals with what the average educated person wonders about. If someone comes along and says, “I’m going to tell you the story of Jesus,” the first question that comes up is, “Where did you get your information? How do we know it’s reliable?” If you begin to explore Christianity, the premise immediately comes up: the accounts of Jesus’ life in the Bible and in the Gospels are not reliable. They’re basically legends, and therefore, we can’t really know...

Your Plans; God's Plans

7/31/2019
More
When you see the word guidance, most of the time in the Hebrew Bible it comes from a word for rope. It’s derived from the word for rope because ropes were the method of navigation for sailors in those days. You would use ropes to lower the sails when the wind was in your favor or to move the sails when the wind changed or to raise the sails and tie them up when a storm came up. Otherwise, you would be blown totally off course, so ropes were ways of navigating. The question is … How do you...

The Wounded Spirit

7/29/2019
More
We all at certain times have a lot of trouble understanding and dealing with the very deep, conflicting, confusing, powerful, sometimes warring dynamic impulses and feelings that just roll through our hearts. Sometimes we don’t feel we have any power over it. We feel helpless, and we don’t know how we got to feeling like that. We know there’s something deeply wrong with it. We don’t know what to do about it. We’re taking a look at what the book of Proverbs says about the complex realities...

A Broken Wall

7/26/2019
More
Proverbs does not talk nearly so much about how to make right decisions as to how to become the kind of person who makes right decisions. We now come to self-control. A man or a woman without self-control is not going to live a wise life, not going to make wise choices, and is going to mess up their lives and the lives of people around them. What do we learn from these passages in Proverbs about self-control? Three things. We learn the problem of self-control. We learn something about the...

Sluggardliness

7/24/2019
More
A theme that anybody who reads the book of Proverbs through will see come up again and again is the subject of work. It talks positively about work under the heading of “diligence.” It talks negatively about work under the heading of “sluggard” or “the sluggardliness.” We live in a city where there’s probably more pressure on work—fewer boundaries to it, and less stability in it—than anywhere I know. The book of Proverbs tells us if you want to have a fulfilled human life, you have to do...

Haughty Eyes

7/22/2019

Over and over and over again, the Bible, and especially Proverbs, says, “If you think you’re wise, you’re a fool; but if you are painfully aware of all of your foolishness, you are wise—or at least you’re on your way to becoming wise.” Chapter 16:19 says, “Better to be lowly in spirit and among the [poor] than to share plunder with the proud.” Humility is more valuable than all the gold, silver and jewels that lay beneath the earth. So we’re going to learn three things by looking at these...

The Evil of Envy

7/19/2019
More
The book of Proverbs has been showing us that very basic to the development of wisdom is the ability to understand and redirect the deep currents of our hearts. We now come to a theme the Bible talks about as being very important to understand—both the reality of it and the power of it—and that is envy. I’d like us to notice three things: how to understand envy, why to deal with envy, and where to take your envy. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian...

Scattering Gathers; Gathering Scatters

Wisdom is knowing the right thing to do in the great majority of life situations the moral rules don’t address. One of the areas where you will have a mess of a life if you only follow the rules and don’t have wisdom is the area of money. People who only look to the rules in the area of money are going to be destructively unwise in their lives. According to the book of Proverbs, if you want to be wise in the area of money, finances, wealth and possessions, you need to know three things. You...

The Temptation of Beauty

Solomon asks for wisdom. He asks for “a heart that can discern right from wrong.” The question comes up, “If he’s the king of Israel, he has the law of God. Why would he need a heart to discern right from wrong? Doesn’t the Word of God tell you?” The answer is wisdom is not less than being moral and good, but it’s quite a bit more. It’s knowing the right decision to make, the right course of action to take, in the vast majority of life situations the moral rules don’t address. In today's...

The Healing of Anger

Solomon prays for wisdom, and he defines it like this. He says, “God, give me a heart that can discern right from wrong.” You might say, “He was the king of Israel. He had the law of God. Why does he need a heart to discern right from wrong?” The answer is wisdom is not less than being moral and good, but it’s quite a bit more. It’s knowing what the right decision or right course of action is in the vast majority of life situations the moral rules don’t address. If you’re going to live a...

Knowing God

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. This is a theme that runs all through Proverbs and, in fact, all through the whole Bible. It’s obvious the term fear of the Lord is something that is a summary of everything we’re supposed to do and be. So why is it so important and what in the world is it? Looking at these passages of Proverbs, I’m going to tell you that the fear of the Lord is beginning with God, knowing God, trusting God, and discovering the grace of God. This sermon...

Strangeness and the Order of God

We don’t want to have to get to the place where we have to know reality, how things really work in the world, so well that we know what the result of a particular action is going to be. That takes a lot of experience and wisdom. We don’t want to have to think. We want to have a rule. But you know what? No matter how much you multiply rules, you’ll never cover all of the situations. It just doesn’t work. Wisdom is being in touch with reality, understanding reality. What does that mean? What...
