Certainty of the Spirit

Romans 8 tells us it’s possible for us to experience God because of the work of the Holy Spirit. At the end of the chapter, we get to the heart of the Holy Spirit’s job: to assure us that nothing can separate us from the love of God.

If this is the main job of the Holy Spirit, it means that your main problem tonight is that you’re not persuaded.

At every level, the Spirit works to convince us. And we need to hear the Spirit’s arguments because there will always be 1) the inside problem, and 2) the outside problem.

This sermon was preached by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 13, 1997. Series: Lessons in Drawing Near. Scripture: Romans 8:31-39.
