👑 Prepare your heart for Immanuel.

Are you ready for Christmas?

In the busyness of the holiday season, it’s easy to become so distracted that we forget why we’re even celebrating: the gift of Immanuel, “God with us.” Advent begins today, December 3, giving us the coming four weeks leading up to Christmas to reflect on the miracle of God choosing to enter the world in human form.

We’ve selected these Plans to help you make the most of Advent. Each one is designed specifically to help you realign your heart and mind with biblical truths about who Jesus is, and what his sacrifice means for our lives today:

This #GivingTuesday ❤️ reach the world.

Giving Tuesday

November 28th is Giving Tuesday, a social movement that helps people give back by donating time, money, or influence to a cause they feel passionate about. Celebrated the Tuesday after Cyber Monday, it’s a day to encourage kindness and generosity.

The Bible App is completely free, without any advertising or hidden costs. At YouVersion, we do what we do because God’s Word has the power to transform lives. We hope that engaging with God’s Word through the Bible App has drawn you closer to Him. We’d encourage you to take another step in your journey:

Help other people share in that same experience by giving to YouVersion.

You can help, too. All you need is an Internet connection, a little time, and a passion for using your gifts to serve others. Learn more:
