Thankful for these 10 @timkellernyc tweets: Humbled, have hope, forgiven, forward progress, not perfection

Sometime in the early 90’s, I began attending Redeemer Presbyterian Church. I believe I went the first time when a friend from my home town was visiting New York City. In ’94, I was married, my wife was later baptized at Redeemer. Only recently, TimKellerI finally discarded the boxes of cassette tapes with my favorite Tim Keller sermons (thankfully most of them are now online, many free).

While I now attend church on Long Island, my family does manage to visit Redeemer a few times each year. In between visits, I truly value reading Tim Keller’s tweets. Each a little nugget that weaves nicely into where I’m at on my journey as a Christ Follower in progress. I retweet the ones I want to be able to refer back to at a later date.

About GettingCloserToOurGod

This blog is written by Todd Christenson. He was raised in Nebraska and currently lives on Long Island in New York. Though out my childhood, my family attended church. We prayed together at meals. I thought I was prepared for life. After college, I moved to New York City. Shy, unsure of myself, building an identity in worldly things, increasingly prideful, self-righteousness, a controlling nature. In 2013, God spoke through someone, suggesting I confess my sins. I did. I realized that every day, I’d been glorifying myself, not God. Today, God’s teaching me to have my identity in Him, only, my dependency in Him, not myself, being who He wants me to be, not the world, loving Him first, loving others as myself.
