The best sermon I have ever heard.

I don’t listen to many of the sermons of my contemporaries.  For the most part, this is because I can’t help but play the “comparison” game with them–a game I usually lose . Such is not the case with Tim Keller.  I figure I’ll never be able to preach like him, and that is a good thing.  I enjoy Tim Keller’s preaching immensely.  His sermons are deeply intellectual but, like CS Lewis, easily accessible.  Bottom line, he is an older man I respect and his sermons are smarter and shorter than mine will ever be.  He can accomplish in one 30 minute sermon what would take me 30 sermons. 

Below is a link to, quite possibly, the best sermon I have ever heard from anyone. It is about our Covenant God and, unlike most “sermons” preached today, it proclaims the gospel boldly, clearly, and simply.  Enjoy.
