Alex and Brett Harris Point to Keller’s “Meaning of the City” Sermon

Alex and Brett Harris (Do Hard Things; Start Here), whose inspires a lot of my approach to being a gospel-centered teacher, recently had this to say about Tim Keller’s hallmark city sermon:

“[The] concepts [in the sermon] are vital for rebelutionaries because they touch at the heart of why we do hard things, why we rebel against low expectations, and why we pursue character, competence, and collaboration. Is it for personal gain or glory? No. Is it to ensure “our team” wins the culture war? No. We do it so others might see our love and come to know the Source of that love. We do it so others might see our good works and give glory to our Father in Heaven (Matt. 5:16).” (See full post here.)

Here are some notes that I took on this sermon this past Sunday.
