The Evil of Envy
The book of Proverbs has been showing us that very basic to the development of wisdom is the ability to understand and redirect the deep currents of our hearts. We now come to a theme the Bible talks about as being very important to understand—both the reality of it and the power of it—and that is envy. I’d like us to notice three things: how to understand envy, why to deal with envy, and where to take your envy. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on November 7, 2004. Series "Proverbs: True Wisdom for Living". Scripture: Proverbs 23:17-18; Psalm 73:1-3, 20-26.

Scattering Gathers; Gathering Scatters
Wisdom is knowing the right thing to do in the great majority of life situations the moral rules don’t address. One of the areas where you will have a mess of a life if you only follow the rules and don’t have wisdom is the area of money. People who only look to the rules in the area of money are going to be destructively unwise in their lives. According to the book of Proverbs, if you want to be wise in the area of money, finances, wealth and possessions, you need to know three things. You need to know the power of money, the reasons for the power of money, and how to break the power of money and properly use it in your life. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 31, 2004. Series "Proverbs: True Wisdom for Living". Scripture: Proverbs 10:15-16; 11:1,4,24,26; 13:21,23; 30:8b-9.

The Temptation of Beauty
Solomon asks for wisdom. He asks for “a heart that can discern right from wrong.” The question comes up, “If he’s the king of Israel, he has the law of God. Why would he need a heart to discern right from wrong? Doesn’t the Word of God tell you?” The answer is wisdom is not less than being moral and good, but it’s quite a bit more. It’s knowing the right decision to make, the right course of action to take, in the vast majority of life situations the moral rules don’t address. In today's passage, we’ll see that in order to be wise, we have to learn how to understand and manage the power of sexuality. If we’re going to be wise with regard to sex, we have to know three things. First of all, why and how we tend to undervalue sex. Secondly, why and how we tend, at the same time, to overvalue sex, and how we can solve that. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 24, 2004. Series "Proverbs: True Wisdom for Living". Scripture: ProverbsProverbs 5:15-19; 11:16, 22; 30:18-20.

The Healing of Anger
Solomon prays for wisdom, and he defines it like this. He says, “God, give me a heart that can discern right from wrong.” You might say, “He was the king of Israel. He had the law of God. Why does he need a heart to discern right from wrong?” The answer is wisdom is not less than being moral and good, but it’s quite a bit more. It’s knowing what the right decision or right course of action is in the vast majority of life situations the moral rules don’t address. If you’re going to live a wise life, if you’re going to have a heart that discerns, you need to understand anger. You need to be able to understand and handle anger, not only in yourself, but in other people as well. There are four things we’re going to learn about anger that you have to know to be wise: its dangerous power, its basic goodness, why it goes wrong, and how it can be healed. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 17, 2004. Series "Proverbs: True Wisdom for Living". Scripture: Proverbs 14:29-30; 15:1,18; 16:32; 19:11,19; 24:28-29; 25:21-22; Jeremiah 45:5.

Knowing God
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. This is a theme that runs all through Proverbs and, in fact, all through the whole Bible. It’s obvious the term fear of the Lord is something that is a summary of everything we’re supposed to do and be. So why is it so important and what in the world is it? Looking at these passages of Proverbs, I’m going to tell you that the fear of the Lord is beginning with God, knowing God, trusting God, and discovering the grace of God. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 10, 2004. Series "Proverbs: True Wisdom for Living". Scripture: Proverbs 3:5-6; 9:10; 16:6; 19:23; 20:9; 23:17-18; 28:14.

Strangeness and the Order of God
We don’t want to have to get to the place where we have to know reality, how things really work in the world, so well that we know what the result of a particular action is going to be. That takes a lot of experience and wisdom. We don’t want to have to think. We want to have a rule. But you know what? No matter how much you multiply rules, you’ll never cover all of the situations. It just doesn’t work. Wisdom is being in touch with reality, understanding reality. What does that mean? What is reality? That’s what we’re going to look at in these passages in Proverbs. We’re going to see in the beginning we’re taught the persistence of reality (it’s really there), secondly, the problems with reality, and thirdly, how it gets healed. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 3, 2004. Series "Proverbs: True Wisdom for Living". Scripture: Proverbs 5:16-23.

The Wellspring of Wisdom
Most of the situations you face in life aren’t covered by the rules. “Do I say something, or do I wait? Do I act, or should I be more passive?” The rules don’t cover those things, yet you will sink, and the people around you will sink, unless you get wisdom. Wisdom is having character of the mind and the heart that enables you to make the right choices in the places where the rules don’t apply. Now how do you get that character? If we look at this passage in Proverbs 4, we’re going to see how this character develops, where it comes from, and how character can be transformed. The character that accords with wisdom. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 26, 2004. Series "Proverbs: True Wisdom for Living". Scripture: Proverbs 4:11-27.

Training in Wisdom
In every area of our lives—work, love, marriage, family—we have decisions we have to make, and if we don’t make them wisely, we’re going to blow up our lives and the lives of people around us. Therefore, being good, being right, being moral, having right moral values is not enough. We have to be wise. Now how do we get wisdom? Here in chapter 3 of the book of Proverbs we see the beginning of the answer to the question … How do we develop wisdom? How do we grow in it? How do we get it? We’re going to learn how to get wisdom if we understand from this passage the path of wisdom, the process of wisdom, and the man off the mountain. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 19, 2004. Series "Proverbs: True Wisdom for Living". Scripture: Proverbs 3:1-12; 30:1-4.

True Wisdom
If you’re going to make it through life, you need something we hardly talk about today. It’s not identical to knowledge, and it’s not identical even to moral goodness. It’s wisdom. You’re going to make an absolute muck of your life if you don’t find and grow in wisdom. There’s no better place to go to than the book of Proverbs. As an introduction to the book, we’re looking at chapter 8, which as we go through it, we will see, shows us the importance of wisdom, the definition of wisdom, the problem of wisdom, and a clue to the solution. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on September 12, 2004. Series "Proverbs: True Wisdom for Living". Scripture: Proverbs 8:10-16; 22-31.

Maker of Heaven and Earth
We live in a culture where the psychology class will teach that your problem is a lack of self-esteem, but the philosophy and biology classes will teach you that you are nothing. The doctrine of creation shows that the universe is not an accident and that every single human being has inherent value because they are made in the image of God. Yet, God is not merely a distant creator. God entered the world and died to redeem it because He loves us so much. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on January 16, 2011. Series "To Know the Living God; The Majesty of God".

The King and the Furnace
In sixth century BC, Babylon was the preeminent power in the world, and this passage shows how they conquered Israel and deported the professional classes, including artisans, scholars, and government and military officers, in order to subjugate them through assimilation. This passage shows how Daniel and his three friends confronted the king of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar. What happened in that confrontation? This sermon teaches three things: the pressure of pluralism, the precision of truth faith, and the promises of suffering. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on August 21, 2011. Series "Theophany: Anticipations of Jesus in the Old Testament".

Money and the Logic of Grace
Naturally we’re inclined to spend our money on ourselves and if we have any left over, we will give it to ministry and charity. However, Jesus shows us how our priorities need to change. Giving to ministry and charity must come first. Only then should we figure out how to spend the rest of our money. Yet, it is only through the Gospel that we can give so much away. It is only when we are spiritually rich that we can stop looking at money as our real wealth and security. It is only when we look forward to the resurrection that we can be assured that the sacrifices we’ve made in this life will pale in comparison to the joys awaiting us in the age to come.

Christ, Our Life
In life we are inevitably changed and shaped by the things we desire. When good things turn into ultimate things, they become idols. However, by devoting our lives to the gospel, we can give up our idols and look to Jesus, with whom we died and are now raised. This sermon was preached by Rev.

The Dream of the Kingdom
How does a Christian live as a believer in an unbelieving world? God calls His people to be spiritually bi-cultural. God does not want His people to either assimilate or segregate. He wants them to become part of the city, to pray for the city and seek its peace and prosperity. Yet, God also insists that His people retain their distinctiveness and not compromise their allegiance to Him. Christians are called to love the city of man for the sake of the city of God. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 30, 2000. Series "Daniel: Living by Faith in a Secular World".

Father, Son and Holy Spirit
If God was unipersonal, there would have been no love until he created the world. However, if the world was created by a triune God, then relationships of love are what life is all about. The Godhead is characterized by mutual self-giving love as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit orbit around one another in a dance. It is impossible for us to join in if we focus on ourselves, but through Jesus Christ and his sacrificial death on the cross, we can be brought into the dance. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on January 15, 2006. Series "King's Cross: The Gospel of Mark, Part 1: The Coming of the King". Scripture: Mark 1:9-13; Genesis 1

The Parable of the Pearl; On Priorities
Becoming a Christian is not a change of degree but a change in kind. It is leaving your native home and entering the Kingdom of God. But entering the Kingdom of God means being willing to sacrifice everything that goes against your new King. In other words, the Kingdom of God will cost you everything you have. But is it expensive? Not at all. It’s a bargain. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on August 28, 1994. Series "The Parables of Jesus 1994". Scripture: Matthew 13:44-46

Hope for the Poor
There are some churches that care about evangelism but not about serving the poor. Other churches will eagerly serve the poor but they don’t care about proclaiming the Gospel. But churches aren’t meant to do one or the other; they must do both. In fact, the two are linked. When non-Christians see Christians sacrificially serving the needy, it displays the beauty of God to them and becomes an aid to evangelism. Separately, serving the poor doesn’t just help others, but helps ourselves. One of the signs that we have truly experienced God’s love is that we can love others – in word and in deed. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 4, 2009. Series "The Gospel, Hope, and the World". Scripture: 1 John 3:1-3, 14-20

The Word Made Flesh
John's Gospel begins by teaching that Jesus Christ is the Word of God. Just as we come to know a person through speaking to them and listening to their words, we come to know God by listening to Jesus speak to us. Yet, Jesus did not come solely to speak. He came to live among us so that there is nothing we will suffer that He has not also suffered. But most of all, He came to die for us. In the incarnation, God became vulnerable to us - even to death - and yet He loved us so much that He was glad to so. This sermon was preached by Rev.

War Between Your Selves (Part 1)
Everyone has a war within themselves. We all want to live according to a high moral code, but none of us can meet the demands of our moral code. The reason for this is that inside of ourselves there is a desire for evil as well as a desire for good. Therefore, none of us can win the battle. But the battle changes when we become a Christian. The deepest parts of ourselves change so that for the first time our most inner being delights in the law of God. We move from a battle we cannot win to a battle we cannot lose.

Praying in the Spirit
To address God as Father was an intimate and shocking thing for Jesus to do. As we move toward the Father in intimacy of prayer, the Spirit will grow in us a deepening wisdom,develop beauty of heart, and give us spiritual clarity.

Christ: The Final Word
Jesus is the final Word and ultimate truth of God. But if we don't listen to and accept God's final Word, we can't have a personal relationship with him. We have to adjust to God's finalities, just as he adjusted to ours by becoming human and dying for us. This understanding should melt our hearts and change our lives as we become more and more focused on God and the gospel. This sermon was preached by Rev.

The New Birth
A common misunderstanding of being "born again" is that it's an experience for broken people, a way for outcasts and moral failures to turn their life around. Yet, when Jesus teaches on being born again, He does so by challenging a man who is the very opposite of the born again stereotype. Nicodemus was an upright moral man and a leader in his society - and yet Jesus said that all of his accomplishments meant nothing unless he was born again. This sermon was preached by Rev.

The Meaning of Christmas
Christmas shows why Christianity is unique. In all other religions, a prophet arrives and teaches how we can find eternal life. In Christianity, God himself comes to us and gives himself as the way to eternal life. Christmas shows that salvation is by grace, that we can have true intimacy with God, that love really matters, and that there exists an unceasing river of joy beneath all the sorrows of this world.

When Paul prays for the Ephesian church, he does not pray for an improvement in their external circumstances. Rather, Paul prays for God to grant the members of the Ephesians church a profound internal knowledge of the depths of God's love.

The Cost of Mission
The reality of meeting God changes you into a person of mission: one who is willing to leave what is comfortable in order to love and serve others. As you take risks to bless others, you will find yourself receiving not only the gifts and resources necessary to do so, but the greatest blessing of all - His presence in your life.

The Gospel, the Church and the World
The church is described as "living stones" to represent it as a deeply interconnected community. We must neither give into culture nor withdraw from culture, but maintain our beliefs while engaging and serving the world. The power to maintain this balance comes from being secure in Christ and united as a church body, with him as our cornerstone. This sermon was preached by Rev.

Work and Rest
The religious leaders in Jesus' time had a long list of rules regarding the Sabbath. When questioned, Jesus does not respond by dismissing the Sabbath, but rather redefines it - by dying on a cross. As Christians, we are able to enter into his rest and enjoy the same rest that God enjoyed after creation, by means of his works, not ours. The Sabbath is a blessing from God and one we will only enjoy if we understand it correctly. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 23, 2003.

Friendship
Wise people are good at choosing, forging, and keeping friendships. The marks of a true friend are constancy, carefulness, candor, and counsel.

It is much easier to believe in God than to trust in God. God calls Abraham to live a life of faith, but Abraham struggles. He asks God how he knows that he can trust God.

The gospel of Jesus Christ transcends cultural and socioeconomic differences. Here we have three examples of conversions in Philippi: of the religious, the oppressed, and the secular.

A Promise of Hope
Adam and Eve sinned even before they ate the forbidden fruit. As soon as they asked themselves why they should obey God, they had sinned in their hearts. Sin is when we remove God as the ultimate authority and enthrone ourselves in God’s place. By elevating ourselves at the expense of God, God’s good world became broken. Yet, the story of Adam and Eve does not end with despair but with hope. God, in the midst of his judgment, promises that a day will come when one of Eve’s children will utterly annihilate the power of sin. This sermon was preached by Rev.

A Christian's Happiness
Romans 8:28 is one of the most famous verses in the Bible. People love the thought that God works out all things for good for those who love Him. Yet, Romans 8:28 is intimately connected with Romans 8:29-30 where God promises to bodily resurrect those He has called. In other words, the Bible does not promise that Christians will have more pleasant circumstances in this life than non-Christians. The Bible promises a better life to come—not better life circumstances in this world. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on July 6, 1997.

Everyone with a Gift
In Romans 12, Paul looks at the Gospel and then exhorts us as to how we should live in the light of what Christ has done. He urges us to give up control over our lives and become “living sacrifices” for God. Unfortunately, the problem with a living sacrifice is that it keeps moving off the altar. Unless we stare deeply at Christ’s sacrifice on our behalf, we will never trust God enough to become the living sacrifices that he calls us to be. This sermon was preached by Rev.

Greed: The Case of the Rich Young Ruler
The rich young ruler in this passage had followed all the rules, but received an astonishing rebuttal from Jesus. Any encounter with the “real” Jesus shocks us.

A Covenant Relationship
The great tension of the Old Testament is the seemingly ambiguous status of God's covenant with His people. Sometimes God speaks as if He will bless Israel irrespective of whether or not they keep the statues of His covenant. Other times the blessing appears to be conditional upon their obedience. This deep tension is resolved through the cross. Jesus takes upon Himself the curse for breaking the covenant. Meanwhile,all of us who have disobeyed the covenant receive - through faith in Christ - the reward that Jesus deserved for keeping the covenant. This sermon was preached by Rev.

The Jealousy of God
Modern people are often uncomfortable when the Bible speaks of God’s jealousy. Yet, God’s jealousy is intimately related to God’s love toward us.

God seeks a relationship with us that is characterized by priority, fidelity, and intimacy. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 27, 2011.

The proper basis for prayer is to approach God as our loving, Heavenly Father and to view our relationship with him as a family relationship - not a business relationship.

Come and See
Do we see Jesus as he is or merely as we would like to see him? That same question goes for religious people and skeptics alike. For skeptics and seekers “come and see” means to come, think, and examine the evidence. For Christians “come and see” means to come and be a disciple of Jesus. We may think we are following him when in reality we are just following our own hearts. Coming to Jesus with a heart that seeks to see him as he wants to be seen opens the way to a life-changing encounter. Come and see. This sermon was preached by Rev.

Peace – Overcoming Anxiety
A lot of us are cast down because we don't expect the attacks on our peace and joy that are inevitable. Much of the depression we experience is depression over our depression. We're sad that we're sad. We're surprised that we're surprised. We're upset that we're upset. Part of being upset is the anger, the guilt, and the frustration we experience as we say, "It's not supposed to be like this!"

Imitating the Incarnation
Many people today believe that Jesus never claimed to be God. They think Jesus was merely a wise teacher whose followers later deified him. Yet, key passages such as Philippians 2 demonstrate that from the very beginning of Christianity, Jesus was worshiped as God. In our lives, we can only see Jesus’ love for us once we realize that he is God. Jesus left the perfect love of the Trinity in order to serve us. He then sends His disciples out into the world, to follow in his footsteps, to serve and sacrificially love others. This sermon was preached by Rev.

Spiritual Warfare
Modern people are uncomfortable with the existence of evil, let alone the existence of the Devil. Yet, the Bible teaches that we cannot fully understand the world we live in unless we realize that there are supernatural agents of evil. But it is not enough to believe in the Devil; a Christian must study his methods. Satan practices evil subtly. He tempts and accuses people rather than overthrowing their will. Temptation is when the Devil asks us to ignore the holiness of God. Accusation is when he blinds us to the love and grace of God. This sermon was preached by Rev.

Justified by Faith
Justification is not merely an abstract theological concept. Rather, it is the sense of approval and belonging that every person desires. Justification is not only that we have our sins forgiven, but that in God’s eyes we are given Jesus’ perfect record. We are treated as if we had lived the perfect life that Jesus lived. We are given the love that Jesus deserved. We have the same access to the Father that Jesus did. The best news is that all of this comes not from us doing anything at all, but simply by faith.
