Gospel in Life

with Tim Keller
With the Anxious Friday, December 1, 2023
It’s not the whale events in your life that make you who you are. It’s all the guppies. Every morning you wake up and millions of them come at you. You have to eat. You have to sleep. You have appointments. The mundane, the hum-drum, the hustle and bustle.  The difference between Martha and Mary is that Martha is swept along by the mundane, but Mary has put her feet at the bottom of the stream. The stream is going one way, but Mary walks the direction she wants to walk. Mary sits at Jesus’ feet in spite of distractions, in spite of opposition.  Because we’re more like Martha than Mary, we’re sinking in a sea of mediocrity. So we ask, what does it mean to sit at Jesus’ feet? Let’s look at: 1) who Martha is, 2) what Martha needs, 3) what Mary does, and 4) why we should do like Mary. This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on February 9, 1997. Series: The Real Jesus Part 2: His Life. Scripture: Luke 10:38-11:13. Today's podcast is brought to you by Gospel in Life, the site for all sermons, books, study guides and resources from Timothy Keller and Redeemer Presbyterian Church.

Do You Know the True Meaning of Christmas?

Despite the abundance of Christian references to Christmas all through popular culture, how many of us have truly examined the hard edges of the Nativity story in the Bible? In Tim Keller’s book Hidden Christmas he provides a moving and intellectually provocative examination of the meaning of Jesus’ birth. Hidden Christmas is our thank-you for your gift to Gospel in Life to help others discover how the birth of Jesus can transform their life.
