    Incarnation

    Incarnation

    Today we’re going to look at a fundamental belief of the Christian faith — the doctrine of the incarnation. It’s a belief that’s unique to the Christian faith, that the eternal, infinite God became a human being in Jesus Christ — a physical, limited, vulnerable, mortal being in history. The implications of this doctrine are vast and many, but we’re going to focus on something specifically astounding in Philippians 2. 


    Paul takes a basic practical human problem, the problem of fighting, and he brings to bear on it the doctrine of the incarnation. He says in order to solve the problem you need to understand the incarnation. So let’s see how he does it in these three parts: 1) the heart that fights, 2) the heart that makes peace, and 3) he shows us how to get that kind of peaceful heart.


    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 25, 2015. Series "What We Believe: Foundations". Scripture: Philippians 2:1-11.

    Sin (2015)

    Sin (2015)

    We’re looking at the basic beliefs of the Christian faith, and there’s no way to do that without getting to what the Bible says is wrong with us. It’s really obvious to everyone that human beings can do an awful lot of very bad things, really evil things. But why? Sociologists will say unjust social conditions and that oppression will result in violence. But the real problem is what made the oppressors oppressors. The Bible tells us that the root problem is inside of us. 


    Have you faced yourself? Do you know what’s in your heart? Do you know what you’re capable of? If you grasp the biblical doctrine of sin, you will be forced to answer all of these questions. Today we’re going to look more closely at the story of Adam and Eve in the garden and learn about 1) the root of sin, 2) the essence of sin, 3) the signs of sin, and 4) the solution for sin.


    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 18, 2015. Series "What We Believe: Foundations". Scripture: Genesis 2:16-17; 3:1-9.

    God (2015)

    God (2015)

    This sermon is part of a series on the basic beliefs of the Christian faith. The outline we’re using is the Apostles’ Creed, and today we come to God. Many people believe in God, but they don’t know him personally. 


    Moses believed in God, but it really wasn’t until the event with the burning bush in Exodus 3 that Moses came to see who God was and encountered him. The central metaphor is fire in this famous story. God could have appeared as anything, but he chose fire. This is very significant because it shows us three things: God is a real God; he can be known; and he is a God who seeks and sends.


    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 4, 2015. Series "What We Believe: Foundations". Scripture: Acts 17:16-34.

    I Believe

    I Believe

    In the Western world every year we hear more and more people say something like, “I don’t believe in God. I don’t have religious beliefs. I don’t have a religious preference.” This is a growing sentiment in our world today. So what is the future of Christian belief in a world in which fewer and fewer believe?


    We’re going to answer this question by going to Acts 17 where Paul gives a sermon to Athens, which was the intellectual center of the Roman world. It was famous as being a place where the philosophers didn’t believe in the gods anymore. It was very skeptical and it was not unlike some parts of our skeptical society today. We’re going to learn three things: first, everyone is deeply religious; secondly, your beliefs must have a God-sized God big enough for your moral intuitions; and thirdly, your beliefs must have a heart-shaped hope that can fulfill your deepest desires.


    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 4, 2015. Series "What We Believe: Foundations". Scripture: Acts 17:16-34.

    The Bible and Finality

    The Bible and Finality

    It’s very typical to hear people in our Western culture say something like, “There are many good things in the Bible, absolutely. But there are also things in the Bible that are really outdated. There are things in the Bible we can’t accept anymore, because we have new insights.” How do we respond to that? Well, the place to go in the Bible to is the book of Hebrews. 


    As we look at what Hebrews is saying, we’re going to learn three things about the finality of truth in the Bible: 1) Jesus brings God’s final word, 2) this creates a living, dynamic relationship with God, and 3) this is because of the unsurpassable beauty of who he is and what he has done.


    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 27, 2015. Series "What We Believe: Foundations". Scripture: Hebrews 1:1-4; 4:6-13.

    The Bible and Experience

    The Bible and Experience

    Nothing is more foundational to the way in which you live than how you regard the Bible — how you approach it and how you understand it. This has a direct influence on how you actually live. When the Bible tells you something happened, it really happened. This has to do with the truth of the Bible. But even if you believe it, what role should that have in your life? This has to do with the authority of the Bible. 


    Today we’re going to look at the authority of the Bible in the second letter of Peter. There are three things to learn: why the Bible has authority, why that’s a good thing, and how that authority works in our lives.


    This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 20, 2015. Series "What We Believe: Foundations". Scripture: 2 Peter 1:12-21.

New creation

Timothy Keller’s sermon never fails to remind me of how I am a new creation in Christ and how the fundamental motivation for living as a Christian is changed. From a notion of ‘working’ to earn my salvation, it changes to a life full of joy because of the righteousness which Christ has earned for me at the cross.

Not alone

Thank You for showing me I’m not alone in this pilgrim journey. Indeed God is with us. I’m very touched each time I listen. I am reminded God has never forsaken me. I listen to this weekly as I cycle with my father every Sunday. And felt for once. I’m spending time with both my earthly dad and Heavenly Father.
