Ep. 292: Before You Open Your Bible

With Matt Smethurst and Daniel Markin

We’ve all had those moments when our Bible reading feels more like a chore rather than an opportunity to deepen our relationship with the Lord. This week Matt Smethurst, former lead editor of TGC and now lead pastor at River City Baptist Church in Virginia, joins us to discuss his book “Before You Open Your Bible: 9 heart postures for approaching God’s Word”. In his discussion of these 9 heart postures, we are reminded of just how privileged we are to have access to His word, and Matt gives us insight that helps us approach our Bible humbly and graciously.
