My Top 15 Elements for Successful Bible Study – YouVersion Mobile Bible
As we grow in our walk with Christ, knowing God’s word (and seeking it with zeal) is one of the most important things we can do. After all, he’s revealed himself to us in two primary ways: Through his Holy Spirit, which we received as a gift when we became Christians, and in his Word.
This post is the third of 15. In each post, I’ll be examining my personal “Top 15″ things leading to successful bible study. I want to be clear that this may not be your top 15. But I’ve observed that over the last six months, all of these things play an important role in my spiritual journey. Maybe a few of them will be valuable for you, too.
Source Materials – the YouVersion Mobile Bible
. I’ve used the YouVersion bible for iPhone for a couple of years now, and it just keeps getting better and better. I always found it a little challenging to carry a bible to church when we had little kids (and were pushing strollers, carrying bags, holding hands etc). Now, I don’t have to … because I’ve got dozens of translations in my iPhone.
This app is indispensible for study, if only because it’s always with me, and allows me to flip between tranlations whenever I need to. The latest version also allows you to:
- download various translations to your iPhone, so you don’t have to worry about having a 3G/WiFi connection
- bookmark passages for later study
- add study notes per passage
- share verses through Facebook and twitter
- opt to listen to passages read in a lovely English accent for most translations
As you can see from the previous posts, I haven’t given up my paper-and-ink bibles, but if you have a smartphone, this is a no-brainer for you to add your collection. And now that I have gotten an iPad, I’m using it more and more.
