Tim Keller’s Sermon “A New Community” Holds The Key To What America And The World Needs – Revival

TimKeller

 

This sermon is from the Bible account of the first revival as recorded in the book of Acts chapter 2.
The same conditions that will revive the Church now are the conditions gave life and growth in the beginning of the Church.

This is the Redeemer synopsis below, but the truth of the matter is that what happened at Pentecost holds infinitely more value than we see initially.

The value to the Church today is as real as it was for the first believers!

“What was it about early Christianity that made it spread like wildfire through the Mediterranean world?  There was something astonishingly attractive in the inclusiveness of a religion that drew people from across all racial, cultural, economic, intellectual and philosophical divides.”

In fact,the essence of what worked then is the key to what works today!

Christ in you and God’s love shed abroad in the hearts of believers!

It all starts and is driven by a constant rejoicing for who Jesus is to all of us.

When you listen, think ,”Revival”.

Heavenly Father,

Please renew,awaken and revive our love for you in and through your Son, Jesus!

How to Love God With Everything Within You

 

 

Jesus said, He who has been forgiven much loves much, and he that has been forgiven little loves little.
(partial paraphrase}. luke 7:41-47

Therefore the realization that Christ paid all our sin debt should result in the true believer loving God with all his heart.

“We love Him because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19

The only questions that remain for us to ask ourselves are;

To what degree do we perceive we were in need?

and,

To what degree do we believe that Jesus met that need on the cross?

“For there is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”Romans3:23

Everyone who has ever lived is less than perfect, except Jesus Christ.

We all come short whether by an inch or a mile. Anything less than perfect and Holy is imperfection and unholiness.

So there is no difference, for all come short.
So all of us owes everything to God.

We have all been forgiven much.
We can all love much.
