A Vision for a Gospel Centered Life (eBook) by Dr. Tim Keller

The following resource(s), are the unofficial, but meticolously enscribed, sermon notes for Timothy Keller's “Vision of Redeemer” 12-part sermon series which was preached in the fall of 2005, plus one additional sermon from Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones.

Available in ePub, Kindle mobi and pdf formats. 

These 13 sermons provide a worldview unique to the Gospel, to the preaching of Drs. Lloyd-Jones and Keller, and unique to their respective churches. We sense that these sermons encapsulate the true nature of the Gospel (in the first 3 sermons…and first three Readings of this book) – particularly the core idea of Paul in all his letters dealing with our standing before God, and summarized succinctly in Titus 3:4-6. But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, [5] He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to His own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, [6] whom He poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior.

The 4th Reading (Where is Your Faith? – by Dr. Lloyd-Jones) should remove once for all any falsely held assumption that a life of faith will be a one of great comfort and few, if any, trials.

The last 9 Readings of this monograph, address the “commands” of Scripture – the call to a life of Biblical faith – “He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake” – Psalm 23:3b. Briefly, the terms "indicative" and "imperative" refer to two different Greek verb moods commonly used by the New Testament authors in their teaching on justification and sanctification. The indicative is the mood of certainty or actuality. The imperative is the mood of command. The New Testament uses imperative statements when saying what we should do[ix]. The first three readings of this monograph dealing with the Gospel - tell us with certainty how we come to be in right standing before God (justified). The latter nine Readings address the call to a life pleasing to God – a living faith which works out of a renewed heart (regeneration).
