Today we get to hear from Matt Smethurst about salvation. Matt is managing editor of The Gospel Coalition and author of several books. He and his wife, Maghan, have three children and are planting a church in Richmond, Virginia. In this conversation we dig in deep, tackling topics like election, calling, regeneration, conversion, and justification. We pray this episode encourages you to look to God as the author of your salvation, and to praise him for the work he has done to make salvation possible for us! 





  • How would you describe the story of salvation? Write it down or verbalize it out loud to a friend. 
  • By whose power are we saved? How does this happen?
  • What is it that we are saved from? What are we saved to?
  • What Scriptures help you most clearly see God’s glory in salvation? Consider memorizing one of these passages.
  • What are you going to do or implement as a result of what you’ve learned this week?
