A New Church for the City

What does it mean to take the gospel out of your private life, out of the church, and into the world? It means sharing the gospel with your friends. It means letting the gospel affect your work. It also means that we’ll go into the world caring about mercy and justice.

Paul was sent as a missionary to Macedonia where he planted a church in Philippi — a large city. Our passage today is about the conversion stories of three people in that church:  Lydia, the slave girl, and a jailor. We’re going to look at what happened to these individuals, and then we’ll draw some implications for how to take the gospel out into the world.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on November 7, 2010. Series “The Gospel and the World”. Scripture: Acts 16:13-33.
