    Two Ways to Live

    Two Ways to Live

    To the world, the ways in which Christians behave will not just look different; it will look crazy. Peter says that you will be looked upon as extremely strange, going against nature even, in many ways. As a result, you’re going to have lots of abuse heaped on you.
    Inside the Christian faith, you can often see how obvious it is that we should live in certain ways. But outside of the Christian faith, the world has a whole different plausibility structure and set of assumptions. Therefore, the way Christians act looks absolutely berserk, absolutely bizarre, strange, and crazy.
    But Peter says, “You live according to the will of God.” And the question immediately arises–how do you do that? How can you live a life like that in the face of not just a kind of abuse, but really, a war of plausibility structures?
    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 17, 1994. Series "Splendor in the Furnace; 1 Peter, Part 2". Scripture: 1 Peter 4:1-6.

    Holiness; Overview

    Holiness; Overview

    1 Peter is about how we can live in such a way that the trouble and pain and suffering that inevitably comes into our lives will not crush us or make us weaker things, but instead make us stronger–refine our character, turn us into great people. How does that happen? How can the sufferings of life actually become tools that hone you and polish you and refine you?
    What we need is right here in verse 16: “Be ye holy; for I am holy.” That’s the heart of this passage. First of all, it teaches us God is holy. Secondly, it teaches us we can be holy. Thirdly, we can be holy because God is holy. No hope otherwise.
    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 17, 1993. Series "Splendor in the Furnace; 1 Peter, Part 1". Scripture: 1 Peter 1:13-21.

    How to Handle Trouble

    How to Handle Trouble

    The theme of the whole book of 1 Peter is about how a Christian can face troubles and suffering in such a way that it turns us into something splendid, instead of crushing us.
    In the Christian life, suffering and glory are inextricably bound up together, because our great forerunner, our great pioneer and savior Jesus Christ, came to glory through suffering. As a result, that is the pattern for all of us. Suffering and glory are bound together.
    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 26, 1993. Series "Splendor in the Furnace; 1 Peter, Part 1". Scripture: 1 Peter 1:6-9.

    My Servant Job

    My Servant Job

    Job is a man who is plunged into agony, and for chapter after chapter, we’ve been seeing Job confused and angry, crying out to God in prayer. Two things keep coming up through all that. Job says, “I don’t want to suffer without explanation, and I don’t want to suffer without vindication.” He keeps saying, “I want to appear before God. I want to talk to God. I want to meet God face to face.” Therefore, if you’re reading through the book of Job, you know the only way this story can end is for God to actually show up and respond to Job.
    And God does. This is the climax of the whole book. There are three things we’re going to learn about this final climactic appearance of God before Job. Let’s look at the argument of God, the silences of God, and God’s wonderful, terrible storm.
    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on February 10, 2008. Series "Job - A Path Through Suffering". Scripture: Job 38:1-3; 40:8-12; 42:1-10.

Tim Keller’s intellectual biblical dives paired with his soft love of the Lord makes for a special podcast that is a must on my weekly schedule.

Life changing

A huge thank you to Tim Keller, Redeemer City to City, the Gospel Coalition and most importantly of all to Jesus Christ and God, who is greatest of all.

I’m in my mid thirties and have struggled with Christianity my entire life, having grown up Catholic. My struggles with faith in God shook my life so badly that I not only lived as a pagan and substance abuser for many years, but even fell prey to the Satanic influence over the world through many forms of media. And through all of that, I still wrestled, never fully losing faith, never fully disbelieving.
Many years of suffering later, I found Jesus in truth and can still feel His grace taking its rightful place as the ruler of my heart. On top of making it a priority in my life to read through the Bible cover to cover again and again to familiarize myself with God’s incredible word, I prayed for guidance, to find sermons that would truly speak to me. And fittingly, those prayers were answered when I not only found Tim Keller’s Gospel in Life sermons, but found them before any others immediately after praying for it.
May God always watch over you, Doctor Keller, in Jesus’ name!

A Gospel Shaped Hearted

I can’t overstate the impact that Tim’s messages have had on reshaping my heart and mind around the significance of who Jesus is, what he did and what it means for my life. Many times while listening I have had to stop what I’m doing and allow the truths to sink into my heart. Keller is a master at shedding new light on the gospel in a way that brings us to the feet of Jesus, loving him as Mary, washing his feet with our tears. Thanks Tim!
