True Wisdom

Play Episode Listen Later Jul 1, 2019 39:47

If you’re going to make it through life, you need something we hardly talk about today. It’s not identical to knowledge, and it’s not identical even to moral goodness. It’s wisdom. You’re going to make an absolute muck of your life if you don’t find and grow in wisdom. There’s no better place to go to than the book of Proverbs. As an introduction to the book, we’re looking at chapter 8, which as we go through it, we will see, shows us the importance of wisdom, the definition of wisdom, the problem of wisdom, and a clue to the solution. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 12, 2004. Series "Proverbs: True Wisdom for Living". Scripture: Proverbs 8:10-16; 22-31.

We live in a culture where the psychology class will teach that your problem is a lack of self-esteem, but the philosophy and biology classes will teach you that you are nothing. The doctrine of creation shows that the universe is not an accident and that every single human being has inherent value because they are made in the image of God. Yet, God is not merely a distant creator. God entered the world and died to redeem it because He loves us so much. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on January 16, 2011. Series "To Know the Living God; The Majesty of God".

In sixth century BC, Babylon was the preeminent power in the world, and this passage shows how they conquered Israel and deported the professional classes, including artisans, scholars, and government and military officers, in order to subjugate them through assimilation. This passage shows how Daniel and his three friends confronted the king of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar. What happened in that confrontation? This sermon teaches three things: the pressure of pluralism, the precision of truth faith, and the promises of suffering. This sermon was preached by Rev.

Money and the Logic of Grace

Play Episode Listen Later Jun 24, 2019 39:20

Naturally we’re inclined to spend our money on ourselves and if we have any left over, we will give it to ministry and charity. However, Jesus shows us how our priorities need to change. Giving to ministry and charity must come first. Only then should we figure out how to spend the rest of our money. Yet, it is only through the Gospel that we can give so much away. It is only when we are spiritually rich that we can stop looking at money as our real wealth and security. It is only when we look forward to the resurrection that we can be assured that the sacrifices we’ve made in this life will pale in comparison to the joys awaiting us in the age to come. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on June 20, 2010. Series "Money and Possessions - In the Teaching of St. Luke". Scripture: Luke 14:7-24

How does a Christian live as a believer in an unbelieving world? God calls His people to be spiritually bi-cultural. God does not want His people to either assimilate or segregate. He wants them to become part of the city, to pray for the city and seek its peace and prosperity. Yet, God also insists that His people retain their distinctiveness and not compromise their allegiance to Him. Christians are called to love the city of man for the sake of the city of God.

If God was unipersonal, there would have been no love until he created the world. However, if the world was created by a triune God, then relationships of love are what life is all about. The Godhead is characterized by mutual self-giving love as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit orbit around one another in a dance. It is impossible for us to join in if we focus on ourselves, but through Jesus Christ and his sacrificial death on the cross, we can be brought into the dance. This sermon was preached by Rev.

It is no accident that the Bible often refers to judgment day as “the Day of the Lord.” We live our lives as if we are the lead actors in the drama of this world. Judgment day is the day when God is paramount. On that day, all people will step back and see the world being put right when God is placed at the center of all things.

Becoming a Christian is not a change of degree but a change in kind. It is leaving your native home and entering the Kingdom of God. But entering the Kingdom of God means being willing to sacrifice everything that goes against your new King. In other words, the Kingdom of God will cost you everything you have. But is it expensive? Not at all. It’s a bargain. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on August 28, 1994. Series "The Parables of Jesus 1994". Scripture: Matthew 13:44-46

Hope for the Poor

Play Episode Listen Later Jun 3, 2019 32:56

There are some churches that care about evangelism but not about serving the poor. Other churches will eagerly serve the poor but they don’t care about proclaiming the Gospel. But churches aren’t meant to do one or the other; they must do both. In fact, the two are linked. When non-Christians see Christians sacrificially serving the needy, it displays the beauty of God to them and becomes an aid to evangelism. Separately, serving the poor doesn’t just help others, but helps ourselves. One of the signs that we have truly experienced God’s love is that we can love others – in word and in deed. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 4, 2009. Series "The Gospel, Hope, and the World". Scripture: 1 John 3:1-3, 14-20

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.

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 to a battle we cannot lose.

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 Presbyterian Church on March 23, 2003.
