Video: Players in This Weekend’s Game Talk about the Bible App

“It’s always the right message each day for me.”
—Lorenzo Doss, Cornerback, Denver Broncos

I play football, but I have to practice and I have to study to get better.
You do the same thing as a Christian.“
—Charles Tillman, Cornerback, Carolina Panthers

Sunday, February 7, will be the biggest day of the year in American sports. And, although the top two teams in American football are facing off as rivals on the field, several players from both sides share a love for the Bible. Now, thanks to YouVersion partner The Increase, listen to some of the players from today’s game telling why they love the Bible App:

5 million reasons to have hope for 2016

5-million-socialgraphic-emailDownload and share

The Bible App was installed on more than 5 million unique devices
during January — the most ever for a single month.
What does that mean?

First, one step…

Five million times during the last month, in countries all over the world, people shared one simple idea: “I should try reading the Bible.” And when they searched for “Bible” using their mobile device, they discovered the Bible App — then installed it. For many of these people, this was their first step on a journey toward God.

“You will seek me and find me,
when you seek me with all your heart.”
—Jeremiah 29:13, English Standard Version

Then another step…

The worldwide YouVersion community broke another record in January, too: together, you completed more than 2.3 million Bible Plans. Bible Plans are one of the best ways we know to learn how to apply principles from the Bible to your everyday life. Bible Plans give you a brief passage to read (or listen to) each day, feeding your soul with encouragement, wisdom, and inspiration. And when you feel inspired…

What’s your next step?

We hope that you’re one of the many who are already actively engaging with the Bible every day. If you’ve felt God’s Word (the Bible) speaking to you, then you’ve begun to understand the power it has to transform your life. Help other people discover that same power.

Get the Bible App

YouVersion’s 21-Day Challenge for 2016: You could win an Amazon Fire Tablet!

If you’re like most people who download the Bible App, you installed it because you believe that reading the Bible is important, and you intend to read it more. One of the best ways we’ve found to start a daily discipline is to complete one short Bible Plan after another in the Bible App. That’s what our annual 21-Day Challenge is all about: helping you start building a daily habit of connecting with God’s Word.

To help inspire you, anytime between February 1 and February 21, share which Plan you’re reading during the 21-Day Challenge — on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #BibleFor21 — and you’ll be entered to win prizes such as a YouVersion T-shirt, stickers, a notebook, or drinkware… or even a 7-inch Amazon Fire tablet! *

Just make sure your posts are public (we can’t see any private posts, so will only be able to select winners that share publicly).
