Rank #1: Holiness; Overview

Podcast cover
Read more

1 Peter is about how we can live in such a way that the trouble and pain and suffering that inevitably comes into our lives will not crush us or make us weaker things, but instead make us stronger–refine our character, turn us into great people. How does that happen? How can the sufferings of life actually become tools that hone you and polish you and refine you?

What we need is right here in verse 16: “Be ye holy; for I am holy.” That’s the heart of this passage. First of all, it teaches us God is holy. Secondly, it teaches us we can be holy. Thirdly, we can be holy because God is holy. No hope otherwise.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 17, 1993. Series "Splendor in the Furnace; 1 Peter, Part 1". Scripture: 1 Peter 1:13-21.

Rank #4: How to Handle Trouble

Podcast cover

The theme of the whole book of 1 Peter is about how a Christian can face troubles and suffering in such a way that it turns us into something splendid, instead of crushing us.

In the Christian life, suffering and glory are inextricably bound up together, because our great forerunner, our great pioneer and savior Jesus Christ, came to glory through suffering. As a result, that is the pattern for all of us. Suffering and glory are bound together.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 26, 1993. Series "Splendor in the Furnace; 1 Peter, Part 1". Scripture: 1 Peter 1:6-9.

Rank #5: Removing Idols of the Heart

Podcast cover
Read more

An idol is something else besides Jesus Christ that is your life. In order to grow, the job of the Christian is to identify what those idols are and to pull them out. You’re looking at yourself and you’re saying, “Why am I so angry? Why am I so worried? Why am I so depressed?” Then you say, “Let me analyze this. What is actually driving me? What goals do I feel like I must have?”

Many of us say, “Oh, I trust Jesus and nothing else.” But what is your heart functionally trusting? What does it actually trust? What does it really rely on? Here is the question we need to ask: “Has something besides Jesus Christ taken title to my heart’s functional trust, its functional preoccupation, loyalty, service, and delight?

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 22, 1989. Series "Growth in Christ, Part 1". Scripture: 2 Colossians 3:5-11, Luke 7.

Rank #6: How Can We Grow

Podcast cover
Read more

We’re beginning a series on Christian growth–growth in grace, growth in supernatural maturity. Sometimes it’s only as you begin to see what the Bible says is true of a Christian, what is in store for a Christian, the kind of growth that can happen in the Christian’s life, that you can come to see very clearly you’re not a believer. You’ve been in and out of churches. You’ve been in and out of different religious organizations. “How do you know?”

Sometimes one of the best ways to know is to look and see what the characteristics of Christian growth are. Growth in grace is the very essence of the gospel; otherwise you’re left with a “niceism” or a “moralism” instead of Christianity.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 1, 1989. Series "Growth in Christ, Part 1". Scripture: 2 Peter 1:1-11.

Rank #9: My Servant Job

Podcast cover
Read more

Job is a man who is plunged into agony, and for chapter after chapter, we’ve been seeing Job confused and angry, crying out to God in prayer. Two things keep coming up through all that. Job says, “I don’t want to suffer without explanation, and I don’t want to suffer without vindication.” He keeps saying, “I want to appear before God. I want to talk to God. I want to meet God face to face.” Therefore, if you’re reading through the book of Job, you know the only way this story can end is for God to actually show up and respond to Job.

And God does. This is the climax of the whole book. There are three things we’re going to learn about this final climactic appearance of God before Job. Let’s look at the argument of God, the silences of God, and God’s wonderful, terrible storm.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on February 10, 2008. Series "Job - A Path Through Suffering". Scripture: Job 38:1-3; 40:8-12; 42:1-10.

Rank #11: Healing of Sin (Part 1)

The gospel is only an implicit, untapped power in your life until it’s released in power through repentance. For the changes you want, the changes you seek, the changes you need–the secret is repentance.

This passage is perhaps the classic and the greatest passage in all of the Bible on this wonderful theme: repentance. What is repentance? We don’t know how to do it because we think we know how to do it already. So let’s take a look at it.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 24, 1996. Series "The Faces of Sin". Scripture: Psalm 51:1-10.

Rank #12: You Shall See Heaven Open

The gospels of Matthew and Luke tell us about the facts of Christmas: the star, the shepherds, and the manger. The beginning of the book of John doesn’t talk to us about the facts of Christmas. It doesn’t tell us the story, but it tells us the meaning of the coming of Christ. It tells us the meaning of Christmas.

We saw in John 1 that the meaning of the coming of Christ was tied to an incident in the life of Moses. We’re going to now see that the meaning of the coming of Christ is tied to an incident in the life of Jacob. The message of Christmas according to this text is the heavens have been opened for those who have been humbled.

No matter how savvy you are, no matter how much planning you do, no matter how powerful or successful you are, there’s no way to stop times of difficulty from coming into your life. They will come into your life.

So how do you get peace and poise in your heart in the face of a world like this? That’s the question that this psalm is about. It starts off by making a remarkable promise in the first four verses. There’s a claim and there’s a misunderstanding of the claim. And finally, we’ll see how we can take hold of the claim in such a way that we enter into the peace that’s offered.

Psalms 42 and 43 talk about how to deal with being downcast, how to deal with being despondent, in despair, in darkness. Everybody needs this throughout life. No matter who we are, we all go through these times.

Let’s notice that there’s a condition described, then there are causes diagnosed, and then finally, there’s a cure prescribed. There’s the condition of being downcast. It’s described. Then the psalm actually gives you some idea about the causes of the condition, and then finally gives you three extraordinarily practical cures.

Rank #16: Fear, Faith and Courage

Podcast cover
Read more

It’s clear we don’t see courage the way the Bible sees it. Courage and faith, in the Bible, aren’t really different. Courage is considered a moral trait, along with love, patience, honesty. It’s a moral character, and it’s something God expects from us.

What we’re reading about here has to do with fear. The ultimate fear is a kind of mistrust in God. We cling to these other things because we all believe at the deepest level, that if we clung completely to God, he’d let us down. In fact, if you clung completely to God, if he was your only security, you would be a perfect person.

The process of growth and grace and sanctification is to get to that place where you find out what those other things are that you are basing your security on, what you are really resting on instead of God. Do you know how you find where those things are, how you can find the trail to those security blankets? Follow your fears.

Rank #18: The Word Made Flesh

Podcast cover
Read more

One of the problems with Christmas is that we think we’re getting meaningfulness too easily. You go to a Christmas service or even a Christmas party, and a couple of people say a couple of words. You come and you sing Christmas carols. While that’s good, we settle for too little, because the meaning of Christmas is inexhaustible. But it’s filled with theologically powerful, life-changing truths.

We’re going to look at John 1, because while the beginning of Matthew and the beginning of Luke tell you about the facts of Christmas, tell you what happened (shepherds, angels, baby in the manger, and all that), John 1 doesn’t mention any of those things. What John is concentrating on is what all those things mean, not so much what happened at Christmas but what Christmas means.

What we’ll do is simply meditate on three aspects of the most pregnant part of this famous passage. It’s in verse 14, where it says, “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us [so we could see his glory].” I just want to break those three things down and talk about them tonight to see how powerful the meaning of Christmas is.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on December 13, 2009. Series "Christmas 2009". Scripture: Hebrews 2:14-18; Mark 2:5.

Rank #19: Sin as Predator

What’s wrong with us? What’s wrong with the human race? If you don’t ask that question, if that question doesn’t burn in your heart, your head is in the sand. The answer the Bible gives us to this question is that it is, to a great degree, a problem of underestimation.

God says, first of all, that sin hides itself. It crouches. Secondly, that sin is tremendously powerful. It will have you. Thirdly, we’re told about hope. You must master it. It tells us about the hiddenness of sin, about the power of sin, and that there’s a hope for the defeat of sin.

Rank #20: Sin as Self-Deceit

Podcast cover
Read more

What’s wrong with us, the human race? The answer of the Bible is all of our sociological and psychological problems are theological problems, and the only answer that possibly gets underneath all of these other semi-answers is the real problem of sin.

We now look at what I’m going to call our capacity for self-deception. What is the capacity for self-deception? It’s the almost infinite ability of the human heart to hide the truth from itself when that truth is too unpleasant or uncomfortable. Self-deception is not the worst thing we do, but it’s the reason we can do the worst things.

There’s no better example of the tragedy of self-deception and the dynamics of it than this tragic story of Saul, the first king of Israel. This text tells us about the fact of self-deception, the structure of self-deception, and a prescription for the healing of it.

Exclusivity: How can there be just one true religion?

Podcast cover
Read more

We’re beginning a series looking at the main objections, the main problems, people in our culture have with Christianity. The objection we’re looking at now can be summed up in one word: exclusivity. The problem is this: how can you possibly claim your religion is the only true religion, that you have the one truth?

Religion, generally speaking, has a very strong tendency to divide people and create strife amongst human beings. In fact, I would go so far as to say religion tends to create a slippery slope in the heart that moves all the way down to even oppression and violence. So what do we do about this? We have to do something.

I would suggest that right now, people are trying to address the divisiveness of religion in two ways. There are two main strategies people are taking, but I’d like to show you they won’t work. Lastly, I’d like to give you a strategy that I think will.

How to Handle Suffering

Podcast cover
Read more

Peter is very, very realistic about the troubles of life. Yet he gives us a secret here. He says it’s possible not just to survive suffering but to use suffering–not just to get through it, but to actually use it.

There are two things this passage tells us. First, what troubles, griefs, and losses really are–what their nature is. Secondly, how you should respond to them. As I think I’m going to show you, understanding their nature is 50 to 70 percent of responding. To understand what trials are, you’re already halfway home to responding to them in such a way that’s profitable and beneficial to you.

Two Ways to Live

Podcast cover
Read more

To the world, the ways in which Christians behave will not just look different; it will look crazy. Peter says that you will be looked upon as extremely strange, going against nature even, in many ways. As a result, you’re going to have lots of abuse heaped on you.

Inside the Christian faith, you can often see how obvious it is that we should live in certain ways. But outside of the Christian faith, the world has a whole different plausibility structure and set of assumptions. Therefore, the way Christians act looks absolutely berserk, absolutely bizarre, strange, and crazy.

But Peter says, “You live according to the will of God.” And the question immediately arises–how do you do that? How can you live a life like that in the face of not just a kind of abuse, but really, a war of plausibility structures?

Holiness; Overview

Podcast cover
Read more

1 Peter is about how we can live in such a way that the trouble and pain and suffering that inevitably comes into our lives will not crush us or make us weaker things, but instead make us stronger–refine our character, turn us into great people. How does that happen? How can the sufferings of life actually become tools that hone you and polish you and refine you?

What we need is right here in verse 16: “Be ye holy; for I am holy.” That’s the heart of this passage. First of all, it teaches us God is holy. Secondly, it teaches us we can be holy. Thirdly, we can be holy because God is holy. No hope otherwise.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 17, 1993. Series "Splendor in the Furnace; 1 Peter, Part 1". Scripture: 1 Peter 1:13-21.

How to Handle Trouble

Podcast cover
Read more

The theme of the whole book of 1 Peter is about how a Christian can face troubles and suffering in such a way that it turns us into something splendid, instead of crushing us.

In the Christian life, suffering and glory are inextricably bound up together, because our great forerunner, our great pioneer and savior Jesus Christ, came to glory through suffering. As a result, that is the pattern for all of us. Suffering and glory are bound together.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 26, 1993. Series "Splendor in the Furnace; 1 Peter, Part 1". Scripture: 1 Peter 1:6-9.

My Servant Job

Podcast cover
Read more

Job is a man who is plunged into agony, and for chapter after chapter, we’ve been seeing Job confused and angry, crying out to God in prayer. Two things keep coming up through all that. Job says, “I don’t want to suffer without explanation, and I don’t want to suffer without vindication.” He keeps saying, “I want to appear before God. I want to talk to God. I want to meet God face to face.” Therefore, if you’re reading through the book of Job, you know the only way this story can end is for God to actually show up and respond to Job.

And God does. This is the climax of the whole book. There are three things we’re going to learn about this final climactic appearance of God before Job. Let’s look at the argument of God, the silences of God, and God’s wonderful, terrible storm.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on February 10, 2008. Series "Job - A Path Through Suffering". Scripture: Job 38:1-3; 40:8-12; 42:1-10.

If a Man Dies, Shall He Live Again?

Podcast cover
Read more

We’ve seen that Job is a devout believer in God, a pillar of his community, and suddenly and inexplicably everything is taken away from him–his wealth, health, family–and he’s plunged into darkness. In this middle part of the book, there are these long speeches by Job, and true to reality, most of the time he’s basically expressing confusion and anger.

Then in this passage, Job wrestles through to a couple of high points of remarkable faith and insight. What we see here is Job coming to grips with three resources that everywhere in the Bible we are told Christians have in order to face suffering. Everywhere from the Old Testament to the New Testament, we’re told Christians have these three resources in order to face suffering: to know the comfort of the presence, to know the challenge of the glory, and the joy of the resurrection.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on January 20, 2008. Series "Job - A Path Through Suffering". Scripture: Job 13:20-24; 14:7-17.

Miserable Comforters

Podcast cover
Read more

How do you get through the inevitable suffering that will come to you? The answer is comfort. A shock absorber system in a car doesn’t eliminate the bumps in the road, but it keeps the car from being shaken into pieces by the bumps. You have to have sources of comfort and strength when you go through suffering–not that it eliminates the suffering, but that the suffering won’t actually shake you to pieces.

Job had three friends. They show up, and from basically chapter 3 all the way into the 20s, they speak to Job in cycles to try to comfort him, to try to help him interpret and understand his suffering. And they do an absolutely terrible job of comforting.

Yet, even by looking at how they don’t comfort well, we’re going to learn something about where the sources of comfort must come from. We’ll look at this passage under three headings: the bad comfort we get from Eliphaz, the better comfort we actually see in Job, and the ultimate comfort we get from somebody else.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on January 13, 2008. Series "Job - A Path Through Suffering". Scripture: Job 5:1-7; 6:1-10.

Questions of Suffering

Podcast cover
Read more

There’s nothing more certain than that you’re going to suffer. When you suffer, it’s so natural to ask the question: Why? In fact, instinctively, sometimes it’s the very first thing out of your mouth when tragedy hits. Why me? Why this? Why now? Why them?

There is no book of the Bible or piece of literature in the whole world that addresses the great “why question” of suffering with the intellectual and philosophical integrity, the emotional and dramatic realism, and the spiritual wisdom of the book of Job.

Right out of the gate, we get some major advice about how to suffer the inevitable burdens of human life. We’re going to learn here, first, you have to avoid pat answers to the question of suffering. Secondly, you need to embrace living without an answer to the question. Thirdly, you need to anticipate the ultimate answer to the question of why.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on January 6, 2008. Series "Job - A Path Through Suffering". Scripture: Job 1:8-22.

Walking with God Through Pain and Suffering (Talk + Q&A)

Suffering is like the Great Wall of China. There’s no way around it. Many are personally suffering at the present moment. Others are not, but are nevertheless rightly troubled by it. Both groups of people will inevitably ask the question–why? But they’ll ask it in different ways.

Let’s look at the general problem of suffering with the question: How do we understand it? And then the personal problem: How do we survive it, how do we face it?

This special talk and Q&A were held at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 2, 2013.

The New City

Podcast cover

You can’t really look at the whole gamut of Jesus’ life unless you also look at Pentecost. What is Pentecost about?

Back in Exodus 18-20, you have a mountain (Sinai), a ministry (the law of Moses), and a new people (Israel). That’s what the first Pentecost was. But that’s also what you have here in Acts. The sun rose that day. But by the time the sun went down, Pentecost meant something completely different. It meant something greater. It meant something infinitely beyond it.

What Pentecost means is there’s a new mountain, there’s a new ministry, and there’s a whole new people whom God has brought into being.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on June 1, 1997. Series "The Real Jesus Part 4; The Lord". Scripture: Acts 2:1-12.

The Ascension

Podcast cover
Read more

Just as it is ridiculous to build a beautiful house if nobody lives in it, just as it is ridiculous and of no use preparing an incredible, beautiful meal if nobody ever eats it, and just as it is silly to build a bomb to make way for a road if you build it without a detonator, so the birth, the death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ are of no use without the ascension. The ascension is the detonator for everything else Jesus Christ did.

The ascension is that which takes what Jesus Christ was and did on earth and releases it into the universe and into your lives with all of its healing power. Let me just look with you at the power of the ascension, the nature of the ascension (what it is), and the meaning of the ascension (what difference it makes).
