    Marriage as Completion: One Flesh

    Marriage as Completion: One Flesh

    In the Bible, the word flesh doesn’t simply mean your body. It doesn’t simply mean what the English word flesh means, which always means simply skin, sinew, blood, and guts. Actually, there’s a place in the Bible where God says, “I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh…” That doesn’t mean, “I will pour out my Spirit on everybody’s body.” It means, “I’ll pour out my Spirit on all people.” The word flesh means a person. When it says the two will become one flesh, it says you’ll be one person. You’re really no longer the same two people, but you’re a third entity. 
    How is it that this one-fleshness can be developed? There are three ways it can happen and three reasons it doesn’t happen. If you do these three things properly, it develops deep oneness. If you fail to do them or if you do them wrongly, it creates something different altogether, basically a business partnership.
    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 22, 1991. Series "Marriage". Scripture: Ephesians 5:22-33.

    Marriage as Friendship

    Marriage as Friendship

    Marriage is not romance garnished with friendship. It’s not in essence romance and attraction, and friendship is thrown in as a wonderful little option, a wonderful little plus if you can get it. Rather, marriage is friendship with romance garnishing and flavoring it.
    Furthermore, friendship is not just a feeling of affection. Friendship is a deep oneness that comes from two people journeying toward a common horizon. First, the oneness; secondly, the walking together, the interacting; and thirdly, the common horizon or goal you’re going to.
    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 15, 1991. Series "Marriage". Scripture: Ephesians 5:22-33.

    Marriage as Priority and Friendship

    Marriage as Priority and Friendship

    Marriage is many things. Marriage is glorious. Marriage is hard. It’s blood, sweat and tears. It’s defeats, and it’s victories. It’s almost everything except sweet. We’re going to see the Bible’s view of marriage is completely realistic. 
    The topic we now come to is the purpose of marriage. We’ve looked at the power and the definition, the priority of marriage. What’s the purpose of it? The purpose of marriage is friendship, companionship. Your spouse has to be your best friend.
    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 8, 1991. Series "Marriage". Scripture: Ephesians 5:22-33.

    Marriage as Commitment and Priority

    Marriage as Commitment and Priority

    We’re looking at marriage in this passage under six headings. We’re looking at the power of marriage, the definition of marriage, the priority of marriage, the purpose of marriage, the structure of marriage, and the mystery of marriage. So far, we’ve only looked at the first two. We now want to get to the third: the priority of marriage.
    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 1, 1991. Series "Marriage". Scripture: Ephesians 5:22-33.

    Overview: Marriage as Commitment

    Overview: Marriage as Commitment

    A person who understands the gospel–who has the gospel in his or 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. This is the basis of a marriage. In today’s passage, Paul gives us not just the power of marriage, but also its definition.
    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on August 25, 1991. Series "Marriage". Scripture: Ephesians 5:22-33.

    Marriage as Ministry Power

    Marriage as Ministry Power

    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.

Solid Biblical Insight

I listened to this podcast a lot when I was first born again, and strongly recommend it to those first born again!
Subject matter typically steers away from biblical topics which tend to put secular society against believers, and these sermons are good to help you remain humble and insightful. Despite the controversy avoidance, Pastor Keller’s theology does not compromise on God’s word for the sake of the times, so the content is solid.
Sermons that will give you humbling biblical insights and encourage glowing brightly in our approach to practicing Christianity before the watching world.

My only complaint is that after a year of listening, the “new” episodes are repeats of the previous year’s. Pastor Keller preached for many years, and there has to be more content than a year’s worth!
