He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.
Matthew 28:6 NIV
Today is the day! It’s finally here, Easter Sunday, the day that followers of Christ all over the world celebrate His resurrection. The Son of God who walked among us as a Son of Man was dead, but now He is alive again! The Bible says that Jesus made us holy by sacrificing Himself: one sacrifice for all time (Hebrews 10:5–14).
Celebrate with us!

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! *

We start the new seasons of our lives with the best intentions. Deciding what we want to change is usually the easy part. But figuring out how to do that is often another story.

Fortunately, helping people get into God’s Word is what we do. So, each day for the next seven days, we’ll be sharing one easy step you can take that day to help you get started. Now, speaking of getting started, let’s talk about today’s tip:

We like to call them “Bible Plans” because many offer features beyond reading: audio, images — even video. Whatever you call them, Plans are one of the best ways we know of to make the Bible a natural part of your everyday life. Let’s get you started:
