Needed More Than Oxygen

Colin smith, bible teacher on Moody Radio’s Open the Bible is passionate about getting us to open the bible because he knows it’s the only way we’re going to experience deep rooted, life-long transformation.

First, the reason for the surge in violence in our country goes back to the very first chapters of the bible. Then, in high school Perry was a slave to his sinful passions, couldn’t break free. But when he finally opened his bible in college, everything changed—a conversation about how we need God’s word more than oxygen.

Next, Colin and Perry agree: “We have to come back to the gospel every day to stand against the lies and accusations of the enemy.” Then, life giving ways to experience the power of God’s word. Finally, the more you understand the one story of the bible, the more you’ll understand who you are, why you’re here, and where you’re going.
