Certainty of the Spirit

Romans 8 tells us it’s possible for us to experience God because of the work of the Holy Spirit. At the end of the chapter, we get to the heart of the Holy Spirit’s job: to assure us that nothing can separate us from the love of God. If this is the main job of the Holy Spirit, it means that your main problem tonight is that you’re not persuaded. At every level, the Spirit works to convince us. And we need to hear the Spirit’s arguments because there will always be 1) the inside problem, and 2) the outside problem.

Witness of the Spirit

We’re in a series on experiencing God, and we’re looking at the work of the Holy Spirit. The main job of the Holy Spirit is to assure you that you are a child of the King—to assure you that you belong to him, that you’re his child, that he loves you.  The three great ministries of the Holy Spirit, which are all assurance ministries, are 1) the ministry of regeneration, 2) the ministry of sanctification, and 3) the ministry of high assurance and power.

Cleansing of the Spirit

We’re looking at what it means to experience God. To be a Christian is to be indwelt by the Holy Spirit. Not just to be helped by the Holy Spirit, not just to be inspired by the Holy Spirit, but to be indwelt.  Today, we’re going to look at how we increase spiritual dynamics in our lives. What are the basic dynamics which, when they’re heightened, heighten spiritual vitality? If we are to walk in the Spirit, we will be involved in two processes: 1) mortification, which is putting to death the deeds of the sinful nature, and 2) aspiration, which is setting your heart and mind on the things ..read more

Life of the Spirit

We’re looking at what it means to experience God. The reason we say Christianity is an extremely experiential religion is because the Bible says when we become Christians, we’re indwelt by the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit resides in you—as a permanent resident.  As we look at Romans 8, we’re taught 1) who the Holy Spirit is, and 2) what it means that he resides in you. This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 16, 1997. Series: Lessons in Drawing Near. Scripture: Romans 8:1-11.

Disciplines of Repentance
Timothy Keller Sermons Podcast by Gospel in Life
by Tim Keller
2w ago
We’re in a series on experiencing God. And we’ve talked about experiencing God’s presence in prayer, in guidance, and in suffering. But how do we get the presence of God in prayer, and in guidance, and in suffering?  Repentance is the secret. Repentance is the way to experience God’s presence in everything.  In Psalm 32, we look at experiencing God through repentance. In it, we see 1) the power of guilt, 2) the power of repentance, and 3) the process of repentance. This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on February 23, 1997.

Disciplines of Distress

2w ago
We’re in a series looking at how we experience God. Now we ask, how do you experience God in troubles and distress and difficulties?  There are many texts in the Bible about suffering. Psalm 11 is a short Psalm, and yet we find in it the same principles on how to deal with trouble that we find all through the Scripture. In this psalm, David shows us how to take refuge in God. Psalm 11 shows us that we need to realize: 1) who is ruling the world, 2) all disasters are examinations, 3) only false foundations can be destroyed by circumstances, and 4) we have to seek God’s face.

Disciplines of Guidance

We’re in a series on experiencing God. Now we come to another aspect: How can you know God is leading you and guiding you?  How can you know you’re not just making these decisions on your own, but rather, that there’s a plan, and God is leading you through that plan?  Psalm 25 is one of the greatest passages on how God guides. It shows us that 1) there’s a promise of God’s guidance, and 2) there are four things that are true of a person who receives God’s guidance. This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on February 9, 1997. Series: Lessons in D ..read more

Discipline of Desire 3
Timothy Keller Sermons Podcast by Gospel in Life

How do we know what real spiritual experience of God is? And then how do we have it? How do we actually move toward it? The Psalms are a journal—almost a kind of instruction manual from the inside—with people who are experiencing God and explaining and describing it. And Psalm 63 is one of the greatest at showing us these things.  We’re going to look at 1) three marks of spiritual experience, and 2) two very key and different disciplines in order to experience God.  This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on February 2, 1997.

Discipline of Desire 2
Timothy Keller Sermons Podcast by Gospel in Life

What does experience of God actually consist of? How does it happen? And how do I know if I’m experiencing God? Psalm 63 shows several principles of what a real experience of God is and consists of. Each principle can be used as a test on your own heart. And each principle is also a discipline—a practical handle for what to do to draw near to God. We’re going to look at two of these principles: 1) you develop a spiritual appetite and, 2) you are capable of a new sense of God.

Discipline of Desire

We have a tremendous hunger for spiritual experience. But how do we experience God? And how do we know we’re experiencing God? The Psalms are an amazing resource, because in the Psalms you have someone describing their experience of God from the inside. Psalm 63 shows us features of authentic Christian experience—and each feature is both a test and a discipline.  Let’s look at the first feature: 1) the way you know you’ve found God is that you develop a spiritual appetite. In other words, the way you know you’re really moving toward God is you feel you’re too far from him. This sermon was ..read more
