Powerful Wisdom Through God’s Word

A pastor at my church gave me one of Tim Keller’s books, the Prodigal God, the message of which was so powerful and greatly influenced my walk with God. Since then, I’ve been looking for as many messages as I can find to seek God’s face and grow in wisdom and understanding. Gospel in Life has become a big part of that process. Thank you Tim Keller, for sharing your spiritual gifts with the world.

Rank #1: Blessed Self-Forgetfulnesss

Podcast cover
Read more

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 consensus. The basis of our education, the way in which we treat incarcerated prisoners, our legislation, and certainly the basis of our counseling is exactly the opposite of the consensus of all the other societies that have ever lived. Our belief today is people misbehave for lack of self-esteem, because they have too low a view of themselves.

What’s intriguing about this passage is it gives us an approach to self-regard, a way of seeing yourself, that is utterly different than traditional cultures or modern, postmodern contemporary culture. The three things we’ll learn here and that Paul shows us is the natural condition of the human ego, the supernatural condition–the transformed sense of self and identity Paul discovered–and lastly, how to get it.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on February 24, 2002. Series "Practical Grace; How the Gospel Transforms Character". Scripture: 1 Corinthians 3:21-4:7.

Rank #2: Spirit and Presence of God

Podcast cover
Read more

In this series on Christian growth, we’re going to talk about the role of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer. One of the main differences between Christianity and moral religion in general is that Christians believe only through the influence of the Holy Spirit are we able and enabled to do anything good. Only through the Holy Spirit can we grow. It’s through the Spirit’s work anything gets accomplished in our lives, not through our own effort.

If we come to faith in Christ, come to God through Christ, then the Spirit of God comes in, and we can know God personally through the Spirit. Through the Spirit’s influence in our lives, we can actually experience God, not just know about him and not just know what he requires of us, but actually experience him.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on December 10, 1989. Series "Growth in Christ, Part 1". Scripture: Ephesians 5:18-21;3:14-21.

Rank #3: The Still Small Voice

The reality of God is far greater than our conceptions of God. In this passage, Elijah, persecuted and feeling hopeless, returns to the mountain where God appeared to Moses and hopes for a similar spectacular revelation of His glory. Yet God confounds and comforts Elijah by appearing as a still small voice. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 26, 1999. Series "Discerning the Spirits (with Elijah)". Scripture: 1 Kings 19:1-18; John 11:21-35; Luke 16:19-31; Luke 9:28-36; Proverbs 11:29; Matthew 11:2

Rank #5: Your Plans; God's Plans

Podcast cover
Read 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 get God’s guidance? How do you get God’s navigation, so when you have all these choices, you know the right course to take? How does that happen? We’ll find out by looking at these proverbs and understanding, first of all, the guidance God does; secondly, the guidance God gives; and thirdly, the guidance God purchases for us.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on December 12, 2004. Series "Proverbs: True Wisdom for Living". Scripture: Proverbs 11:3; 12:5,15; 15:22; 16:1-4,9,25,33; 21:5; 27:1.

Rank #6: The Word Made Flesh

Podcast cover
Read more
John's Gospel begins by teaching that Jesus Christ is the Word of God. Just as we come to know a person through speaking to them and listening to their words, we come to know God by listening to Jesus speak to us. Yet, Jesus did not come solely to speak. He came to live among us so that there is nothing we will suffer that He has not also suffered. But most of all, He came to die for us. In the incarnation, God became vulnerable to us - even to death - and yet He loved us so much that He was glad to so. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on December 13, 2009. Series "Christmas 2009". Scripture: John 1:1-14; Hebrews 2:14-18; Mark 2:5

Rank #7: The Wounded Spirit

Podcast cover
Read 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 of the inner being, the inner life, the psychological life. I’d like to look at the passage under four headings. Let’s see what we learn from these collected proverbs. You’re not going to be wise unless you understand the priority of the inner life, the complexity of the inner life, the solitude of the inner life, and the healing of the inner life.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on December 5, 2004. Series "Proverbs: True Wisdom for Living". Scripture: Proverbs 12:25; 13:12; 14:10,13,30; 15:4,13-14; 16:2; 18:14; 28:1.

Rank #8: An Immigrant's Courage

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 Church on October 19, 1997. Series "Pointers to Christ - Directional Signs in History". Scripture: Ruth 4:13-17

They explore eight areas in marriage: planning and planting, roles, headship and submission, fertilizing and watering, love languages, sex, conflict resolution, forgiveness and repentance, as well as spiritual life together.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 1, 2005. Series "Cultivating a Healthy Marriage". Scripture: 1 Corinthians 7.

Rank #10: Marriage as Ministry Power

Podcast cover

Marriage, contrary to what a lot of people say, is not something a bunch of people around a cave-fire in the Late Bronze Age suddenly thought up. According to the Scripture, marriage is a divine invention.

In this passage, we’re going to see first that the essence of marriage is a covenant, secondly, that the purpose of marriage is companionship, and lastly, the priority of marriage has to be number one.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on August 18, 1991. Series "Marriage". Scripture: Ephesians 5:22-33.

Rank #11: Finding our Identity in Christ (Part 3)

Podcast cover

We’re taking a look at Colossians 3:12–17 and pointing out some how-to’s. How do you work the gospel, the good news down into your life? Paul essentially says, “because your life is hid with Christ in God, live that way.”

If Christ is your life, then when other people come and criticize you, you say, “Well, you know, it hurts to be criticized, but my reputation isn’t my life, and what they think of me isn’t my life. Christ is my life.” Paul is saying, “Be what you are. Take hold of what you really are and you really have, and live on the platform of it. Be what you are. Let the peace of Christ rule.”

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on November 12, 1989. Series "Growth in Christ, Part 1". Scripture: Colossians 3:12-17.

Rank #12: 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 #14: Praying Our Fears

Podcast cover
Read more

The religiosity approach to emotions is to stuff them, deny them, and act like they’re not there. We’re uncomfortable with these strong emotions. We need to get control of them quickly. On the other hand, in secular circles there is this sort of love of just expressing our emotions as if it’s a good in itself.

The Psalms don’t do either. The Psalms do not say we should be under-aware of our emotions or over-awed by our emotions. We shouldn’t be stuffing our emotions or bowing to them. We should be praying them. We don’t mean by praying them that you put them in nicely manicured and managed little theologically correct confessional prayers, but you pre-reflectively pour them out into the presence of God and you process them there.

In this passage, David is really at the bottom in fear. He’s saying, “I’m scared,” but he’s going to do something. He’s turning. The four things he does, the four steps out of the pit, are all there in verses 3–8. I’ll tell you what they are, and then we’ll go through them: Follow your thread, relocate your glory, see the substitute, and remember the people.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 5, 2000. Series "Psalms - The Songs of Jesus". Scripture: Psalm 3:1-8; Genesis 15:1,8.

The gospel tells you to stop trying to steal self-acceptance from other sources and to instead warm yourself at the fire of our standing in Jesus Christ. In Christ, God treats believers as if they have done all that Christ has done. It doesn’t matter what kind of day you’ve had. The gospel says that the determining factor is not your present or your past, but Christ’s present and past. That’s what the gospel is.

Rank #16: Overview: Marriage as Commitment

A person who understands the gospel–who has the gospel in his her blood–is a person who is strong and yet humble, and therefore, out of reverence for Christ submits and is able to serve other people, putting the needs of other people ahead of their own. That’s the power of marriage. That is the basis. Paul here gives us not just the power of marriage, but also its definition. That’s what we’ll now look at.

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 sermon was preached by Rev.

Rank #18: 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 #19: You Shall See Heaven Open

Podcast cover

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.

Rank #20: Family: Our Father

Podcast cover
Read more

In this series, we’re going to take one phrase each week from the Lord’s Prayer and then go to some other place in the Bible that gives us access to the strain of biblical doctrine and teaching that is required if you’re going to pray that part of the prayer.

What does it mean to pray, “Our Father”? What’s intriguing to me about this passage is that in verses 4–5, when it describes everything Jesus Christ came to do, the reason he came, the purpose of his salvation, was that we might receive adoption to sonship. We can pray “Our Father” because we’ve been adopted into the family of God.

Let’s look briefly at the gift of adoption, the meaning of adoption (what it means to be adopted), the reason we can be adopted, and then how it applies to prayer.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 28, 2014. Series "The Prayer of Prayers". Scripture: Galatians 3:26-4:3.
