Passionate Grace

9/16/2019
More
We’re looking at what the marks are of a heart that has been changed at its very core. We now come to a trait that is hard to summarize in any one English word. A supernatural heart has its relationship to the truth changed. In 1 Corinthians 13, it says the mark of a heart that has been changed by the supernatural love of God is that it rejoices with the truth. Paul is talking about something more than ethical honesty. There’s a place where Jesus Christ speaks of his followers as people who...

Blessed Self-Forgetfulnesss

Up until the twentieth century, the traditional cultures have always believed too high a view of yourself is the real root cause for most of the evil in the world. This is still true in most cultures of the world. Why do people abuse others? Why are people cruel? Why do people do the bad things they do? Traditionally, pride–too high a view of ourselves–is the reason why we misbehave. In the modern Western culture, particularly in the United States, we have an utterly opposite cultural...

Receptive Grace

What we’re looking at is not the moral behavior Christianity requires, and which to a great degree other religions require, but what we’re looking at is the supernaturally changed heart–the traits or characteristics of a new heart that only the gospel in its peculiar way of relating us to God can produce. The trait we now come to is what the world calls tolerance. And we have to confront a very, very urgent question. The question is how should you relate, how can you relate to someone whose...

Resting Grace

We’ve been talking about the fact that there’s a difference between a supernaturally changed heart and a morally restrained heart. The marks of a supernaturally changed heart are sometimes called the fruit of the Spirit. They’re listed a number of places in the New Testament. We now come to another trait or quality of a supernaturally changed heart: peace. In almost all the lists of these traits, it’s joy or peace. I want to spend more of my time than I have the last couple of weeks on how...

Forgiving Grace

9/4/2019
More
In traditional moral training, how do we teach people to be honest? How do we encourage them not to lie? It goes something like this. We say, “Don’t lie, or you’ll get caught.” “Don’t lie, or society won’t work.” The more religious approach is, “Don’t lie, or God will punish you.” Therefore, in traditional moral training, you’ve only restrained the heart, not fundamentally changed the heart. You haven’t changed its character. Instead of dealing with the roots of dishonesty, you’ve just...

Love and the Practical Graces

9/2/2019
More
In the first sermon of this series, we’re going to look at 1 Corinthians 13:1-8 and ask these questions: What is heart character? What is inner love and joy? What is the inner supernatural change in character that God can bring? This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on January 13, 2002. Series "Practical Grace; How the Gospel Transforms Character". Scripture: 1 Corinthians 13:1-8. Today's podcast is brought to you by Gospel in Life, the site for...

Forward-Back Living

8/30/2019
More
The kingdom of God is the power of God to readminister your life, rearrange your life in all sorts of ways. We’ve been looking at some of them, and now we look at one last way. He doesn’t just have you live upside-down and inside-out, but also forward-back. What does that mean? Let’s take a look and see what he teaches us about the power of the kingdom; the practices of the kingdom, and last of all, the provision of the kingdom. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer...

Inside-Out Living

8/28/2019
More
We’re continuing to look at the various themes of the gospel of Luke. We’ve been looking at how the gospel completely changes the way in which we live. In this parable, Jesus introduces us to a universal problem, the problem of righteousness. He gives us two guys, each of which represents a particular solution to the problem–one solution which does not work, one which does. Problem; a solution that doesn’t work, the outside-in approach; and a solution that does work, the inside-out...

Upside-Down Living

8/26/2019

We’ve been looking at the gospel of Luke, but we really can’t leave it unless we look at this theme that is all through the gospel of Luke and all through Jesus’ teaching … the kingdom of God. We really can’t leave until we understand better what that is, and it’s not easy to get that across. Many of you have heard the term kingdom of God for a long time, but can you put in a nutshell what it is? It’s not that easy. One philosopher says a kingdom is the range of your effective will. If...

Responding to Jesus

8/23/2019
More
I believe it’s in the crucifixion account that Luke comes to us and says, “I’ve given you all of this information, but how will you respond to it? I’ve given you this information, but how do you take it in?” When Jesus says, “Father, forgive them; they don’t know what they’re doing,” what he’s saying is, “Father, they’re looking right at me, and they don’t get it. They’re looking at what we’re doing, they’re looking at your salvation, they’re looking at the greatest thing that has ever...

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

8/19/2019

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

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

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

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...
