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...

Hope, Race and Power

7/14/2016
More
Racial and cultural differences exist. They cannot be resolved by simply embracing broad-mindedness, but by adjusting our lives and forming deep relationships with people from whom we are different. These relationships will enable us to finally view all aspects of God's glory. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 25, 2004. Series "Living in Hope". Scripture: Romans 14:1-3,14-15:7

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...

Christ: The Final Word

2/11/2016
More
Jesus is the final Word and ultimate truth of God. But if we don't listen to and accept God's final Word, we can't have a personal relationship with him. We have to adjust to God's finalities, just as he adjusted to ours by becoming human and dying for us. This understanding should melt our hearts and change our lives as we become more and more focused on God and the gospel. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on February 6, 2005. Series "Christ:...

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...

The Cost of Mission

11/19/2015
More
The reality of meeting God changes you into a person of mission: one who is willing to leave what is comfortable in order to love and serve others. As you take risks to bless others, you will find yourself receiving not only the gifts and resources necessary to do so, but the greatest blessing of all - His presence in your life. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 30, 1994. This was an individual sermon. Scripture: Genesis 12:1-4

Duration: 00:18:13


The Gospel, the Church and the World

11/5/2015
More
The church is described as "living stones" to represent it as a deeply interconnected community. We must neither give into culture nor withdraw from culture, but maintain our beliefs while engaging and serving the world. The power to maintain this balance comes from being secure in Christ and united as a church body, with him as our cornerstone. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on November 20, 2005. Series "The Vision of Redeemer". Scripture:...

Work and Rest

10/22/2015
More
The religious leaders in Jesus' time had a long list of rules regarding the Sabbath. When questioned, Jesus does not respond by dismissing the Sabbath, but rather redefines it - by dying on a cross. As Christians, we are able to enter into his rest and enjoy the same rest that God enjoyed after creation, by means of his works, not ours. The Sabbath is a blessing from God and one we will only enjoy if we understand it correctly. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer...

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:...

The Inside Out Kingdom

8/13/2015
More
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus contrasts two groups who appear the same on the outside,but have different motives on the inside. Religious people are superficial,hiding behind the letter of the law; but people who are changed by the gospel are shining in the spirit of the law. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 28, 1999. Series "The Mount; Life in the Kingdom". Scripture: Matthew 5:11-20, Psalm 1, Matthew 7.

Duration: 00:39:32


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

Duration: 00:30:09


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

Duration: 00:45:20


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

Duration: 00:33:54


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 sermon...

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

Duration: 00:29:46


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...
