    The Sower: On Hearing

    The Sower: On Hearing

    In the parable of the sower, we see that Jesus did not just come to bring forgiveness of sins, but the very kingdom of God—in other words, forgiveness of sins is just the beginning. The kingdom of God is nothing less than the power of God in heaven entering the world to heal every alienation and every brokenness.

    What does it mean to enter the kingdom of God? How do we come into the power of the kingdom of God? In this parable, we learn that listening well, listening deep, and listening in understanding is the primary skill of the kingdom of God.

    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on August 23, 1992. Series: The Parables of Jesus (1992). Scripture: Matthew 13:1-9; 18-23.

    The Two Debtors: On Devotion

    The Two Debtors: On Devotion

    Two people find themselves in the same room with Jesus: Simon, an intellectual and a religious man, and a woman, who we are told lived “a sinful life.” What happens with them? Why does one of them remain cool and detached, while the other one sees their life transformed and changed?

    In the parable of the two debtors, we see what happens when people come to Jesus with two different conditions, and how Jesus responds to each of them. 

    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on August 16, 2008. Series: The Parables of Jesus (1992). Scripture: Luke 7:36-50.

    The Wheat and the Weeds: On Reality

    The Wheat and the Weeds: On Reality

    In the parable of the weeds, we see Jesus depicting a cosmic truth about the kingdom of God in a very concrete way. Jesus shows us that to enter the kingdom of God, you must make Jesus your king—you must obey the one who saved you. The parable also shows us we must have patient diligence, and be careful to be neither too zealous nor too passive.

    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on August 9, 2008. Series: The Parables of Jesus (1992). Scripture: Matthew 13:24-30; 36-46.

    The Good Samaritan: On Love

    The Good Samaritan: On Love

    In the parable of the Good Samaritan, Jesus teaches that love is what God built us to do, that love is the essence of what it means to be human. In this story, we see that real love doesn't begin until you see that you can't really love—it doesn't begin until you see you're a sinner saved by grace alone. We also see that real love begins when you're stunned into silence by the love of Christ for paying your debt. Once you've experienced and been humbled by that kind of love, then you're capable of concrete and costly love toward others.

    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on August 2, 2008. Series: The Parables of Jesus (1992). Scripture: Luke 10:25-37.

    The True Older Brother

    The True Older Brother

    At the beginning of Luke 15, Jesus is speaking to religious leaders who look at him fraternizing with “sinners.” They basically ask Jesus: “Why are you hanging out with all these lost people?" In response, Jesus gives three parables about lostness, ending with the parable of the lost son. Jesus is trying to get across a new idea of what it means to be spiritually lost. In the parable of the lost son, then, Jesus gives us a new understanding and a new category for spiritual lostness.

    In this sermon, we'll see what that category is, how you can judge whether you’re in the category yourself (what the signs are of that condition), what do you do with it if that’s you, and lastly, what are some of the implications for the church.

    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on November 9, 2008. Series: The Fellowship of Grace. Scripture: Luke 15:17-32.

A Key Resource in helping us unpack God’s word and the Christian lifestyle

This is the first review I’ve ever written for any podcast and I’m doing so because of how much I’ve benefited from Dr Tim Keller’s sermons and Gospel in Life podcast. I’m so thankful that this is a free resource and I’m so grateful for all that I’ve learnt about God and His word through Dr Tim Keller’s sermon.

I strongly encourage all to listen in. The podcast has become an important resource to my husband and I. We are so grateful and so thankful. We hope more people will benefit from this.

U have to listen if u think you don’t have a spirit of envy!

I thot I don’t have envy in me, but God knows better… my thumb accidentally slid onto this episode and I thought I might as well just stick to it. Lo and behold! God indeed is good… Tim made many succinct points here and they’re very relatable to our daily lives, to illuminate what we don’t wanna face up—admitting we’re envious = admitting we’re small, and hence our indirect acknowledgement of humiliation. But it’s so important that we cannot avoid, hide or dodge if we wanna be honest with God and ourselves!

The truth that set us free.

Tim Keller's teachings gave me the essence of the Gospel, which freed me from holding grudges and not forgiving.
