In recent memory I have not had a sermon so ‘talk’ to me so much after hearing it as this one by Tim Keller. It has instantly become a favorite.
Keller’s text is Luke 18.9-14, the Pharisee & the Tax Collector. He exposes the issue at hand: a quest for approval/glory. And then shows the two ways to go about resolving the issue: Outside in (Pharisee) and Inside out (Tax Collector).
If you are like me and have a vocal inner legalist crying out for justification by works of the law then this sermon is for you because the gospel is for you. I am so thankful that God provides faithful teachers of his word to poke, prod and push us towards the acceptance that is in Christ.
