    The Man in the Furnace

    The Man in the Furnace

    The book of Daniel teaches us about the Israelites while in exile. After living for centuries in a culture in which the cultural institutions supported their belief in God, they found themselves in Babylon, which was a religiously pluralistic society. This big city had many gods and many moralities. This naturally created tension because the Israelites believed in the one true God of the Bible. 


    In a similar way, how do we live as believers in a pluralistic society? We may be accused of being intolerant of those who don’t believe like us. Or we may face hard questions about our God allowing unjust suffering in the world. How do we handle that? Today’s passage from the book of Daniel helps us navigate these issues. First of all, let’s take a look at the golden image, which addresses the problem of tolerance, and then we’ll look at the fiery furnace, which addresses the problem of unjust suffering.


    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on May 7, 2000. Series: Daniel: Living by Faith in a Secular World. Scripture: Daniel 3:14-29.

    The Dream of the Kingdom

    The Dream of the Kingdom

    We’re going to consider the question, “What does it mean to live the Christian life? How can we live it out?” The book of Daniel is a helpful place to go because it’s exilic literature, meaning it tells the stories of the Israelites when in exile. They were taken away from Israel and into a city that was hostile to God. As believers, we’re like Daniel in exile, asking ourselves, “How in the world can we live a life of integrity in a pluralistic, polytheistic, unbelieving world?” 


    There are three questions to ask ourselves: what’s the meaning of Daniel’s two names, what’s the meaning of this weird dream, and thirdly, what is the rock that strikes the statue? We’re going to learn three practical principles for living a believing life in an unbelieving world. 


    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 30, 2000. Series: Daniel: Living by Faith in a Secular World. Scripture: Daniel 2:24-35, 44-46.

    The Zeal of Jesus

    The Zeal of Jesus

    The sermon for today comes from Luke 4, and it is the last sermon in a broader series on the fruit of the Spirit and character change. The recurring question has been, “How can our hearts be changed?” Simply put, our hearts don’t change when we look at the law, but they change when we look at the lawgiver, who is Jesus. 


    We now come to the last fruit of the Spirit which is self-control. Jesus exemplified self-control and stayed on course when he faced temptation. We’re going to learn about self-control by looking at these four things: what temptation is; the inevitability of it; how it works; and how to defeat it.


    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on May 31, 1998. Series: The Fruit of the Spirit – The Character of Christ. Scripture: Luke 4:1-15.

    The Humility of Jesus

    The Humility of Jesus

    Today’s sermon comes from a series on the real character change that can happen in a person’s life. This is not just moral reformation that consists of merely obeying rules, but it begins with a deep change at the heart level. When we look at Jesus, the person and work of our savior, our hearts should melt and be transformed by him. This is real character change. 


    In Galatians 5, Paul says one of the fruits of the Spirit is meekness (or gentleness in newer translations). In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus says, “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.” Not only do we not have meekness in our lives, it’s challenging to understand it. We don’t even have a good definition of it. Let’s look at this passage from John 8 where we see Christ’s own humility: 1) how does Jesus define it; 2) how do we get it. 


    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on May 24, 1998. Series: The Fruit of the Spirit – The Character of Christ. Scripture: John 8:1-11.

    The Patience of Jesus

    The Patience of Jesus

    Today we’re going to look at the practice of forgiveness in the Christian life. First, what God calls us to do and secondly, how to get the power to do it. Forgiveness is not just one of the many biblical commands that we have to force ourselves to do, but forgiveness becomes genuine and real when there is a deep change at the heart level. We don’t look at the law and follow it as an end in itself, but we look at Jesus to be changed from the inside out – this is where we get the power to truly practice forgiveness. 


    There are three things in today’s passage Jesus tells us that are very important to understand about the practice of forgiveness: 1) forgiveness is a particular aim, a goal; 2) forgiveness is an action; 3) forgiveness is acceptance.


    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on May 17, 1998. Series: The Fruit of the Spirit – The Character of Christ. Scripture: Luke 17:3-19.

Bible ends or means (episode 611)

Keller eloquently challenges us to read beyond our limited understanding which is inherently me focused and to enter into a new space of which moves beyond self orientation to the joy of living in Jesus.
