Living Grace
Sep 20 • 45 min
Paul, in 1 Corinthians 13, said it is possible to live a completely ethical life without any love at the root of it, but rather, fear, pride and power. What we’re doing is we’re taking a look at the traits of a life that’s not just morally restrained…
Enduring Grace
Sep 18 • 45 min
We’ve been looking underneath ethical behavior to the marks of supernaturally changed character, a heart that’s changed at the root in its fundamental desires and motivations. Today, we come to a term that’s very important in Greek philosophy and in Greek…
Passionate Grace
Sep 16 • 41 min
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…
Blessed Self-Forgetfulnesss
Sep 13 • 41 min
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…
Receptive Grace
Sep 11 • 43 min
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…
Resting Grace
Sep 9 • 47 min
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…
Befriending Grace
Sep 6 • 45 min
This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on January 27, 2002. Series “Practical Grace; How the Gospel Transforms Character”. Scripture: Ephesians 4:29-5:2; John 15:12-15. Today’s podcast is brought to you by Gospel…
Forgiving Grace
Sep 4 • 44 min
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…
Love and the Practical Graces
Sep 2 • 47 min
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…
Forward-Back Living
Aug 30 • 43 min
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…
Inside-Out Living
Aug 28 • 44 min
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…
Upside-Down Living
Aug 26 • 43 min
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,…
Responding to Jesus
Aug 23 • 44 min
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…
The Call to Discipleship
Aug 22 • 43 min
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…
The Glory of Jesus
Aug 19 • 40 min
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…
Faith in Jesus
Aug 16 • 43 min
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.…
The Community of Jesus
Aug 14 • 45 min
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…
The Message of Jesus
Aug 12 • 42 min
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…
The First Temptation of Christ
Aug 9 • 41 min
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.…
The Deity of Jesus
Aug 7 • 36 min
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…
The Excellence of Jesus
Aug 5 • 43 min
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…
The True Story of Jesus
Aug 2 • 45 min
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…
Your Plans; God’s Plans
Jul 31 • 43 min
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…
The Wounded Spirit
Jul 29 • 43 min
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…
A Broken Wall
Jul 26 • 40 min
Proverbs does not talk nearly so much about how to make right decisions as to how to become the kind of person who makes right decisions. We now come to self-control. A man or a woman without self-control is not going to live a wise life, not going to…
Sluggardliness
Jul 24 • 40 min
A theme that anybody who reads the book of Proverbs through will see come up again and again is the subject of work. It talks positively about work under the heading of “diligence.” It talks negatively about work under the heading of “sluggard” or “the…
Haughty Eyes
Jul 22 • 43 min
Over and over and over again, the Bible, and especially Proverbs, says, “If you think you’re wise, you’re a fool; but if you are painfully aware of all of your foolishness, you are wise—or at least you’re on your way to becoming wise.” Chapter 16:19 says,…
The Evil of Envy
Jul 19 • 40 min
The book of Proverbs has been showing us that very basic to the development of wisdom is the ability to understand and redirect the deep currents of our hearts. We now come to a theme the Bible talks about as being very important to understand—both the…
Scattering Gathers; Gathering Scatters
Jul 17 • 41 min
Wisdom is knowing the right thing to do in the great majority of life situations the moral rules don’t address. One of the areas where you will have a mess of a life if you only follow the rules and don’t have wisdom is the area of money. People who only…
The Temptation of Beauty
Jul 15 • 42 min
Solomon asks for wisdom. He asks for “a heart that can discern right from wrong.” The question comes up, “If he’s the king of Israel, he has the law of God. Why would he need a heart to discern right from wrong? Doesn’t the Word of God tell you?” The…
The Healing of Anger
Jul 12 • 41 min
Solomon prays for wisdom, and he defines it like this. He says, “God, give me a heart that can discern right from wrong.” You might say, “He was the king of Israel. He had the law of God. Why does he need a heart to discern right from wrong?” The answer…
Knowing God
Jul 10 • 42 min
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. This is a theme that runs all through Proverbs and, in fact, all through the whole Bible. It’s obvious the term fear of the Lord is something that is a summary of everything we’re supposed to do and be.…
Strangeness and the Order of God
Jul 8 • 42 min
We don’t want to have to get to the place where we have to know reality, how things really work in the world, so well that we know what the result of a particular action is going to be. That takes a lot of experience and wisdom. We don’t want to have to…
The Wellspring of Wisdom
Jul 5 • 40 min
Most of the situations you face in life aren’t covered by the rules. “Do I say something, or do I wait? Do I act, or should I be more passive?” The rules don’t cover those things, yet you will sink, and the people around you will sink, unless you get…
Training in Wisdom
Jul 3 • 42 min
In every area of our lives—work, love, marriage, family—we have decisions we have to make, and if we don’t make them wisely, we’re going to blow up our lives and the lives of people around us. Therefore, being good, being right, being moral, having right…
True Wisdom
Jul 1
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…
Maker of Heaven and Earth
Jun 28
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…
The King and the Furnace
Jun 26
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…
Money and the Logic of Grace
Jun 24
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…
Christ, Our Life
Jun 21
In life we are inevitably changed and shaped by the things we desire. When good things turn into ultimate things, they become idols. However, by devoting our lives to the gospel, we can give up our idols and look to Jesus, with whom we died and are now…
The Dream of the Kingdom
Jun 19
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…
Neighbors
Jun 17
The parable of the Good Samaritan demonstrates a powerful example of gospel neighboring. Through examining this parable, we can recognize four elements to help us to act out the neighbored grace modeled by Jesus in our own lives: God’s mandate, magnitude,…
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Jun 14
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…
Perfect Freedom
Jun 12
The Apostle Paul examines the concept of grace and the reason why our lives must follow Christ’s example. Only through God’s grace and accepting Christ into our lives will we ever find true freedom and our true selves. This sermon was preached by Rev.…
Who is the Spirit?
Jun 10
Many people feel as if they understand who God the Father is and who Jesus is, but they become confused about the Holy Spirit. In this sermon, Tim Keller explains who the Holy Spirit is and clarifies misunderstandings about what the Holy Spirit is not. In…
The Dangerous God
Jun 7
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…
The Parable of the Pearl; On Priorities
Jun 5
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…
Hope for the Poor
Jun 3
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,…

An Immigrant’s Courage
Feb 9, 2017
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…
The Word Made Flesh
Dec 8, 2016
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.…
Generosity in Scarcity
Nov 14, 2016
Habbakuk tells us how to deal with evil times and maintain joy when everything is going wrong. There are three principles to giving: give sacrificially, joyfully, and graciously. We must recognize that everything is a gift from God, so we’re giving back…
9/11/2001 Sermon: Truth, Tears, Anger, and Grace
Sep 8, 2016
A recording of the Sunday service after 9/11. Jesus experiences both anger and grief in the face of human suffering. But he also brings about a resurrection; according to the Bible,everything bad will come untrue. Jesus is the perfect Counselor who gives…
Pride: The Case of Nebuchadnezzar
Aug 25, 2016
Nebuchadnezzar’s pride began in contentment and prosperity, but he had no peace of mind. It caused him to take credit for everything he’d achieved. God dehumanized him in a reflection of what pride had done to his heart. Only when he recognized his debt…

Hope, Race and Power
Jul 14, 2016
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…
The Still Small Voice
Jun 30, 2016
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…
Rejecting the Real Jesus
Jun 16, 2016
Why do so many people disbelieve Christianity and reject the message of Jesus Christ? The underlying problem is that we do not want to give up control over our lives and have God be our ultimate authority. To overcome unbelief we must see our need for a…
The Final Hour
Jun 2, 2016
The cross solves many of our deepest human dilemmas. We wonder how there can be a God when there is so much injustice in the world, yet of all the world’s religions, only Christianity has a God who comes down and suffers injustice alongside us. We wonder…
War Between Your Selves (Part 1)
May 19, 2016
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.…

Praying in the Spirit
Feb 25, 2016

Christ: The Final Word
Feb 11, 2016
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…
Blessed are the Poor
Jan 21, 2016
One of the clearest commands Jesus gives us in the Gospels is to give to the poor. Jesus became poor for us, and we must also love the poor with radical generosity. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April…
The New Birth
Dec 31, 2015
A common misunderstanding of being “born again” is that it’s an experience for broken people, a way for outcasts and moral failures to turn their life around. Yet, when Jesus teaches on being born again, He does so by challenging a man who is the very…
The Meaning of Christmas
Dec 17, 2015
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…
When I Survey
Dec 3, 2015
When Paul prays for the Ephesian church, he does not pray for an improvement in their external circumstances. Rather, Paul prays for God to grant the members of the Ephesians church a profound internal knowledge of the depths of God’s love. Paul prays…
The Cost of Mission
Nov 19, 2015
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…
The Gospel, the Church and the World
Nov 5, 2015
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…
Work and Rest
Oct 22, 2015
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…
The Song of Creation
Oct 8, 2015
Genesis tells the why of creation, not the how. It’s a poem, a song about a historical event. The Christian doctrine of creation is that this world is good and the purpose of nature is to be a community. We can take joy in cultivating and enjoying the…
Friendship
Sep 24, 2015
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,…
The Inside Out Kingdom
Aug 13, 2015
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…
Adoration: Hallowed Be Thy Name
Feb 18, 2015
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…
Accepting the Judge
Feb 18, 2015
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…
Abraham and the Torch
Feb 18, 2015
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…
A Woman, a Slave and a Gentile
Oct 22, 2014
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,…
A World of Idols
Oct 22, 2014
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…
A Spirit Hath Not Flesh and Bones
Oct 22, 2014
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…
A Promise of Hope
Jul 28, 2014
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…
A Christian’s Happiness
Jun 27, 2014
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…
1 Corinthians 6-7
Jun 6, 2014
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…
Everyone with a Gift
Jan 24, 2014
In Romans 12, Paul looks at the Gospel and then exhorts us as to how we should live in the light of what Christ has done. He urges us to give up control over our lives and become “living sacrifices” for God. Unfortunately, the problem with a living…
Greed: The Case of the Rich Young Ruler
Jan 24, 2014
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…
Lord of the Earth
Nov 1, 2013
The story of Noah and the flood is about second chances and new beginnings; God is ready to give us another chance. God calls us into three great relationships: with the earth, with all the people on earth, and with himself, the Lord of the Earth. This…
A Covenant Relationship
Oct 9, 2013
The great tension of the Old Testament is the seemingly ambiguous status of God’s covenant with His people. Sometimes God speaks as if He will bless Israel irrespective of whether or not they keep the statues of His covenant. Other times the blessing…
Beholding the Love of God
Oct 9, 2013
Knowing God is not an anti-rational mystical experience. Knowing God occurs when the truth overflows from your mind into your entire being. Knowing God is when the truth you’ve heard a thousand times becomes experientially real, and you marvel at the…
The Jealousy of God
Aug 29, 2013
Modern people are often uncomfortable when the Bible speaks of God’s jealousy. Yet, God’s jealousy is intimately related to God’s love toward us. The relationship that God calls us to is not merely one of subjects obeying a king. Rather, God calls us into…
Basis of Prayer: “Our Father”
May 31, 2013
The proper basis for prayer is to approach God as our loving, Heavenly Father and to view our relationship with him as a family relationship - not a business relationship. To be able to pray with this kind of confidence, we need to know that we have been…
