Merry Christmas! Please join us today as together we not only celebrate the birth of our Savior, but also share the joy of the gift of His Word. YouVersion is what it is because of you, the worldwide YouVersion community. God has already used your passion and the Bible App™ to reach more people than we ever could have imagined. Even so, we believe it’s still just the beginning.
Last year we started the annual tradition of Global Share the Bible Day, a day when we take every opportunity to share the Bible with others. Whether it’s face to face, through your Facebook status or your Twitter feed, or even on your blog, every time you think of it today, please tell others what you love about the Bible.
