Eating with Jesus

2/13/2018
More
** Register for the Feb 16-17 Public Faith Conference Livestream at redeemer.com/formationconference ** Many Americans disregard Christianity not because they don’t believe in God, but because they don’t believe in the church. Jesus exhorts the church to be a “city on a hill,” a community where people love and serve one another, in fellowship with God as well as with our neighbor. When he fulfills our deepest needs, we can find resources that we never knew we had for serving others. This...

Messengers

** Register for the Feb 16-17 Public Faith Conference Livestream at redeemer.com/formationconference ** As disciples of Jesus, we are his messengers, and our mission is to communicate the belief that we have in Christ. Service based on performance, pride, and self-image can be manipulative and harmful, but service based on who we are in Christ allows us to rejoice in what God does in our lives and in the lives of others. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer...

An Immigrant's Courage

2/9/2017
More
Ruth is a story of redeemers. Ruth teaches us that friendships can change the world (as with Boaz, the kinsman-redeemer), and that we can and must reach across spiritual and cultural barriers to do so (as with Ruth, the hidden redeemer). Both Boaz and Ruth point to Jesus, our true Redeemer. Once we realize that, we can ourselves reach across barriers to engage in spiritual friendships and be true disciples of Jesus. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian...

War Between Your Selves (Part 1)

5/19/2016
More
Everyone has a war within themselves. We all want to live according to a high moral code, but none of us can meet the demands of our moral code. The reason for this is that inside of ourselves there is a desire for evil as well as a desire for good. Therefore, none of us can win the battle. But the battle changes when we become a Christian. The deepest parts of ourselves change so that for the first time our most inner being delights in the law of God. We move from a battle we cannot win...

The Meaning of Christmas

12/17/2015
More
Christmas shows why Christianity is unique. In all other religions, a prophet arrives and teaches how we can find eternal life. In Christianity, God himself comes to us and gives himself as the way to eternal life. Christmas shows that salvation is by grace, that we can have true intimacy with God, that love really matters, and that there exists an unceasing river of joy beneath all the sorrows of this world. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church...

Friendship

9/24/2015
More
Wise people are good at choosing, forging, and keeping friendships. The marks of a true friend are constancy, carefulness, candor, and counsel. When you are liberated to be the great friend you need to be by the great friendship of Jesus on the cross, then you will find yourself getting, paradoxically, all the friends your heart needs. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on May 29, 2005. Series "Proverbs: True Wisdom for Living". Scripture:...

Adoration: Hallowed Be Thy Name

2/18/2015
More
When we say "hallowed be thy name," we are making the adoration of God the ultimate concern of our lives. By giving God the praise he deserves,we will heal our worldview as well as our souls. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 30, 1995. Series "The Lord's Prayer 1995". Scripture: Matthew 6:6-15

Accepting the Judge

2/18/2015
More
Without a judgment day,we would live in a hopeless world. But if there is a judgment day,none of us could bear the weight of judgment. However,in Christ we have already been judged. In Christ we can live between two judgments: the judgment we've already passed through and the coming judgment of the world. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on January 23, 2000. Series "The Apostles' Creed; Getting a Vocabulary for Faith". Scripture: John 12:41-50

Abraham and the Torch

2/18/2015
More
It is much easier to believe in God than to trust in God. God calls Abraham to live a life of faith, but Abraham struggles. He asks God how he knows that he can trust God. God responds with a demonstration that is one of the clearest pointers to the Gospel in the Old Testament. In so doing, God enables Abraham to truly live a life of faith. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on November 3, 1996. Series "Daring to Draw Near". Scripture: Genesis...

A World of Idols

10/22/2014
More
The gospel should change not just our inner being but also the way we relate to the outside world. Paul engaged with society every day. He was distressed, indignant and compassionate about the Athenians' beliefs, but he kept his eyes on the cross to inform his words. He recognized their idols and raised up Jesus as the only true God. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 29, 1998. Series "The Church - How to Believe Despite Christians"....

A Woman, a Slave and a Gentile

10/22/2014
More
The gospel of Jesus Christ transcends cultural and socioeconomic differences. Here we have three examples of conversions in Philippi: of the religious, the oppressed, and the secular. The gospel is presented through rational discourse, a power encounter, and through practical embodiment of a gospel-changed life. The message of Christ liberates and transforms lives, and unites people who once had nothing in common into one family. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer...

A Spirit Hath Not Flesh and Bones

10/22/2014
More
The Easter story tells us of a new beginning after disaster - that after death there is life. If you spiritualize the resurrection of Jesus, you will have comfort but not the truth. The message of Easter is that right now, Jesus has flesh and bones. This changes the way you think, the way you live, and the way you feel. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 12, 1998. Series "Easter Service". Scripture: Luke 24:37-43

A Promise of Hope

7/28/2014
More
Adam and Eve sinned even before they ate the forbidden fruit. As soon as they asked themselves why they should obey God, they had sinned in their hearts. Sin is when we remove God as the ultimate authority and enthrone ourselves in God’s place. By elevating ourselves at the expense of God, God’s good world became broken. Yet, the story of Adam and Eve does not end with despair but with hope. God, in the midst of his judgment, promises that a day will come when one of Eve’s children will...

A Christian's Happiness

6/27/2014
More
Romans 8:28 is one of the most famous verses in the Bible. People love the thought that God works out all things for good for those who love Him. Yet, Romans 8:28 is intimately connected with Romans 8:29-30 where God promises to bodily resurrect those He has called. In other words, the Bible does not promise that Christians will have more pleasant circumstances in this life than non-Christians. The Bible promises a better life to come—not better life circumstances in this world. This...

1 Corinthians 6-7

6/6/2014
More
The Biblical view of sex is unique. It rejects the view, held by some conservative cultures, that sex is dirty. Instead, the Bible views sex so highly that it cannot be shared casually with anyone. Sex is meant to bind two people together. It renews the covenant that they have made with one another. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on February 7, 2005. Series "1 Corinthians: Leader Talks, 2004-2005". Scripture: 1 Corinthians 6-7

Greed: The Case of the Rich Young Ruler

1/24/2014
More
The rich young ruler in this passage had followed all the rules, but received an astonishing rebuttal from Jesus. Any encounter with the “real” Jesus shocks us. This young man’s religious assumptions failed him because he didn't understand the concept of “treasure in heaven,” and consequently, he was unable to recognize the true freedom and inheritance Jesus offers. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 19, 1995. Series "The Seven Deadly...

Everyone with a Gift

1/24/2014
More
In Romans 12, Paul looks at the Gospel and then exhorts us as to how we should live in the light of what Christ has done. He urges us to give up control over our lives and become “living sacrifices” for God. Unfortunately, the problem with a living sacrifice is that it keeps moving off the altar. Unless we stare deeply at Christ’s sacrifice on our behalf, we will never trust God enough to become the living sacrifices that he calls us to be. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at...

Lord of the Earth

11/1/2013
More
The story of Noah and the flood is about second chances and new beginnings; God is ready to give us another chance. God calls us into three great relationships: with the earth, with all the people on earth, and with himself, the Lord of the Earth. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on December 10, 2000. Series "Genesis - The Gospel According to God". Scripture: Genesis 9:1-17

A Covenant Relationship

10/9/2013
More
The great tension of the Old Testament is the seemingly ambiguous status of God's covenant with His people. Sometimes God speaks as if He will bless Israel irrespective of whether or not they keep the statues of His covenant. Other times the blessing appears to be conditional upon their obedience. This deep tension is resolved through the cross. Jesus takes upon Himself the curse for breaking the covenant. Meanwhile,all of us who have disobeyed the covenant receive - through faith in Christ...

Beholding the Love of God

10/9/2013
More
Knowing God is not an anti-rational mystical experience. Knowing God occurs when the truth overflows from your mind into your entire being. Knowing God is when the truth you’ve heard a thousand times becomes experientially real, and you marvel at the miracle of God’s love for us. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 2, 1995. Series "Knowing that We Know God; 1 John, Part 2". Scripture: 1 John 3:1-3
