I am not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions. The few I have made in my lifetime have typically not lasted more than a couple of months. You, on the other hand, might make resolutions a part of your New Year, and if one of them includes reading the Bible more, I can help.
Well, actually I can’t help but I can refer you to a great resource that can. YouVersion.com has a tag-line of being “A simple, ad-free Bible that brings God’s Word into your daily life. ”. I would agree.
Here is what YouVersion offers in their words:
- Read the Bible– Take your choice from hundreds of Bible versions and languages. Compare two versions side by side. You can even choose your font and display size. Make your online Bible experience just the way you like it.
- Study the Bible– Highlight in your favorite color, bookmark your favorite Bible verses, and make notes about what you’re learning. Not only are you spending time in God’s Word, you’re building a history of your interaction with the Bible.
- Subscribe to Bible Plans– Cover the whole Bible, focus on a topic, or read a devotional from a gifted teacher. Choose your plan and each day you’ll find a Bible selection waiting for you.
- Take the Bible with you– Download the Bible App for free on any mobile device. When you use the mobile app, your notes, bookmarks, highlights, plans, and more will be automatically synced across all of your devices.
YouVersion.com is a ministry of LifeChurch.tv and they are constantly upgrading and adding new features to both the web version and the mobile versions.
I have been using YouVersion.com for four years. The way God’s word is presented has helped me grow as a Christian. The easy access and depth in content has been good for me. There is a small learning curve with all the different features, but it is worth it.
And in case you didn’t know, we encourage you to use YouVersion during our Sunday morning worship services. It is a great way to follow along with the scripture used for teaching.
