Sermon prep – The Two Lost Sons

I’m getting ready for this Sunday’s sermon by reading Tim Keller’s book, The Prodigal God. It was terrific, and I won’t try to summarize it here, except to include a few quotes that won’t make the sermon on Sunday:

– Summarizing Martin Luther: “Religion (rather than the gospel) is the default mode of the human heart.”

– Hymn from Newton about the way the gospel breeds good works:

Our pleasure and our duty,

though opposite before,

since we have seen his beauty

are joined to part no more.
