New on YouVersion: Devotional Plans from John Piper

"Never has God's voice been so easily accessible," writes John Piper, urging Christians to prefer Bible apps over the abounding options out there.

Resolve that today you will press the Bible app three times during the day. No five times. Ten times! Maybe you will lose control and become addicted to Bible! Again and again get a two-minute dose of life-giving Food. Man shall not live by Facebook alone.

A true leader in the market, YouVersion is ranked as the first Bible app in iTunes with over 50 million downloads and 144 languages. They have a five-star rating based on over half a million reviews worldwide. And best of all, it's completely free (see on iTunes or Google Play).

One neat feature of the YouVersion app is that they offer devotional plans that complement your Bible reading. Using a split-screen format, the biblical text is on the left and the devotional notes are immediately to the right. It's an easy, practical way to engage readers with God-centered content.

So we're excited to announce that there are now seven devotional plans from John Piper. Ranging from 3-day plans to a full two weeks, our hope is that these readings take users deeper into the Bible and the glory of Jesus Christ.

To start one of these reading plans, create a free account with YouVersion and follow their simple instructions.
