    The Shield of Faith (Part 2)

    The Shield of Faith (Part 2)

    Fiery arrows do not come all throughout the battle. When do they come? Right when you’ve decided to storm the stronghold of the enemy. 
    We’re looking at the armor of God—it’s an illustration Paul uses as a way of saying we have everything we need to meet the battles of life, but we must make use of those resources. And in looking at the shield of faith, we see that the more we decide to get our lives together, the more likely we are to find fiery arrows coming at us.
    This passage on the shield of faith teaches us: 1) God lets Satan send us fiery trials, 2) we should expect fiery trials, and 3) faith is not a passive thing.
    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 29, 1992. Series: Spiritual Warfare – The Armor of God. Scripture: Ephesians 6:14-18.

    The Shield of Faith

    The Shield of Faith

    If you’re trying to do anything more important than to just get ahead in life, you’ll know the shield of faith is extremely important. Because let’s face it: the enemy attacks at the front line. 
    Your front line is the place where you go out on a limb to do something because you know it’ll make a difference—perhaps in this neighborhood, this city. When you go to the front line, there are all sorts of flying missiles with your name on them.
    That’s the reason we’re talking about this piece of armor: the shield of faith. Let’s look at 1) what it is, 2) when you need it, and 3) how to put it on.
    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 22, 1992. Series: Spiritual Warfare – The Armor of God. Scripture: Ephesians 6:10-20.

    The Sandals of Peace (Part 3)

    The Sandals of Peace (Part 3)

    Paul says a Christian should be characterized by readiness, a spiritual buoyancy that comes from the use of the gospel of peace. 
    We’re looking at the armor of God and we’re in the third part of our examination of the shoes and this one little phrase about the gospel of peace.
    There are three basic parts this phrase teaches us: 1) there is a joy through the gospel, 2) that brings peace with God, and 3) that brings peace with people.
    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 8, 1992. Series: Spiritual Warfare – The Armor of God. Scripture: Ephesians 6:14-18.

    The Sandals of Peace (Part 2)

    The Sandals of Peace (Part 2)

    When Paul talks about shoes, he’s talking about a kind of spiritual athleticism. 
    The idea behind the armor of God is that God has given us all sorts of things we aren’t using. The shoes were part of the armor, and the shoes of the Roman soldier had to be gripping, tough, and light. The only kind of shoes in our culture that need these qualities are athletic shoes. 
    We’re going to continue our look at the shoes of the readiness of the gospel of peace by looking at 1) what is spiritual athleticism, 2) what you have to have for spiritual athleticism, and 3) how to develop spiritual athleticism.
    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 1, 1992. Series: Spiritual Warfare – The Armor of God. Scripture: Ephesians 6:14-18.

    The Sandals of Peace (Part 1)

    The Sandals of Peace (Part 1)

    Some of you may be surprised that when Paul thinks about armor, he lists the shoes. 
    Paul goes through the pieces of equipment that a Roman soldier would wear. It’s an illustration on how to live the Christian life, and it gets at a balance that is critical to understand: the balance of how much of the Christian life is your exertion and how much is God’s working in you.
    To understand this particular piece of armor, we have to ask ourselves a couple of questions about the footwear of a Roman soldier: 1) what role did shoes have? 2) what do the shoes represent? and 3) what’s the gospel of peace?
    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on February 23, 1992. Series: Spiritual Warfare – The Armor of God. Scripture: Ephesians 6:10-20.

    The Breastplate of Righteousness (Part 2)

    The Breastplate of Righteousness (Part 2)

    When you fail, when people accuse you, when people reject you, how do you defend yourself? How do you look yourself in the mirror? 
    We all have a problem of feeling unpresentable, of deeply seeking to be examined and approved. In Ephesians 6, Paul talks about the breastplate, about the fact that we all have to have a righteousness to cover our hearts. We have to have some way of defending ourselves against accusation. 
    In continuing our look at the breastplate of righteousness, let’s look at 1) the false solution that is the secular way, 2) the false solution that is the religious way, and 3) how to put on the real remedy.
    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on February 16, 1992. Series: Spiritual Warfare – The Armor of God. Scripture: Ephesians 6:10-20.

Wisdom Worth Scattering

As a human seeking the intersection of wisdom and spirituality, I have come across no better resource than The Gospel of Life, and the late Tim Keller’s work. I’m on my second trip through these archival gems, and the thing that truly makes them significant is that no matter when they were recorded (many I’m the 1990’s) they resound with such utter relevance today as they did when they were first recorded. My only regret is not discovering this earlier, but my heart is lightened by the legacy Tim and his surviving wife Kathy have left for us.

So encouraging and helpful

Keller has been and will always be one of my spiritual mentors. He approaches faith is such a beautiful and dynamic way without shape shifting to cultural norms. So thankful for his influence in my life.

Lololololololllllolloooool ,

Smart convincing teaching

Dr. Keller is one of my favorite speakers. I listen to him knowing that I will find answers to hard questions with a smart, logic, convincing method.
A great blessing to today's world.
