    The Freedom of Love

    The Freedom of Love

    How could the idea that you’re saved by grace alone be any incentive to live a good life?
    Paul says the gospel of salvation through free grace, not works, is actually a greater incentive to a life of honesty, sacrifice, and love than anything else. He’s talking about how we change the human heart, and he says the motivation behind what we do is all-important.
    Paul tells us 1) what the new motivation is, and 2) how the new motivation works.
    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 29, 1998. Series: Galatians: New Freedom, New Family. Scripture: Galatians 5:5-12.

    The Freedom of Hope

    The Freedom of Hope

    Most people think the job of religion is to call people into a life of morality. But Paul says that’s not what Christianity is at all.
    Gospel transformation is completely different than moral reformation. In Galatians 5, Paul says there are two different reasons you could obey God—and the reason for your obedience makes all the difference in the world.
    Paul tells us 1) there is a wrong reason for moral obedience, and it enslaves us, and 2) there is a whole other engine for obedience, and it is hope and love.
    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 22, 1998. Series: Galatians: New Freedom, New Family. Scripture: Galatians 5:1-12.

    Grace to the Barren (Part 2)

    Grace to the Barren (Part 2)

    What’s the purpose of writing a letter to somebody? The purpose is to get something across. So when we read the Bible, we need to have the intellectual integrity to treat it the way we’d want our own communications treated.
    Galatians 4 is a text that many find difficult to read and interpret. What is Paul saying? What does he mean? But if we understand the context, it really is very simple in the end.
    If we look at Galatians 4, we’ll see 1) he talks about two sons, 2) then he talks about two covenants, and 3) then he gives two applications.
    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 15, 1998. Series: Galatians: New Freedom, New Family. Scripture: Galatians 4:21-31.

    Grace to the Barren (Part 1)

    Grace to the Barren (Part 1)

    The difference between a sword and a scalpel at first sight doesn’t seem that great. But you can either cut in order to defeat or in order to heal.
    The book of Galatians is counseling, and for Paul, truth is a scalpel. He’s not using truth to bludgeon, but to do surgery. And the reason this truth changed other people’s lives was because Paul brought the truth through the mode and channel of true friendship.
    We’re told three things in this passage about transforming friendships: 1) a friend has a vision for who God is making you, 2) a friend has a vision for Christ being formed in you, and 3) a friend is willing to go into labor pains for it all.
    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 8, 1998. Series: Galatians: New Freedom, New Family. Scripture: Galatians 4:21-31.

    Ministers and the People

    Ministers and the People

    If you want to be an agent of reconciliation and change and healing in the lives of others, Paul says something that applies to us all.
    Paul says the essence of his ministry was this: “become like me, for I became like you.” There are two sides to that sentence. Only by the power of God can you do both. But if you can do both, you can change people’s lives.
    Here’s what you need: 1) you need ministers, 2) you need the kind of ministers who understand the gospel, and 3) you need ministers who labor until Christ is formed in you.
    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 1, 1998. Series: Galatians: New Freedom, New Family. Scripture: Galatians 4:12-20.

    Enslaved to Non-gods

    Enslaved to Non-gods

    This is a startling passage. The context is that the Galatians, who became Christians out of pagan backgrounds, are now falling under the influence of teachers who say, “It’s not enough just to believe in Jesus Christ. You also have to obey everything in the Bible.”
    Paul says something here which is astounding. He says that if they do that, they will fall back under what he calls the slavery of the non-gods.
    So we ask ourselves three questions: 1) what are the non-gods? 2) how do they enslave? and 3) how can we be free?
    This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on February 22, 1998. Series: Galatians: New Freedom, New Family. Scripture: Galatians 4:8-20.

Love this minister

Timothy Keller has been instrumental in my Christian walk. I’m so happy for him that he’s in eternity with Jesus and that he left behind his great teachings. God is so good!

The critics review of the Bible

Ever watch a great movie and then read a credible critique? You find deeper meaning to that movie, more than you thought you knew. And you like the movie more than ever.

As to the Bible, Tim Keller is that credible critic. I love the Bible more now, On a deeper level, More mature level. Tim Keller does the deep dive expanding the meanings, relationships and applications of God in the Bible. As well helping me draw nearer to God in prayer, meditation, thinking, studying and interactions.

5-stars to all his sermons

Tim Keller podcasts

Tim has shown me that the gospel of Jesus Christ is in every book of the Bible... it has given me a whole new appreciation of the Old Testament... finding Jesus's gospel or pointing to his gospel in each OT book. In combination with reading his books and those of John Stott and Fredrick Bruener, these podcasts make me feel like I am in seminary going deep into understanding God's word and the truth in love and the love in truth that the Bible offers..it is not easy... it has to be discovered... and Tim's podcasts are my guide. It is a gift that I have found Tim and have found him to be reliable and trustworthy. Very grateful. He has help ignite my passion to follow Jesus. Thank you. Glenn Olson
