Daily Walk: Free Online Resources for You
The Bible is more accessible now than at any other point in history.
Thanks to computers, smartphones, and the internet, there are many apps that make God’s word available to you. While many of us have some version of the Bible downloaded onto their phones (I am partial to the ESV app), there are also many apps and websites that can help us improve our relationships with God in deeper ways.
Whether you’re looking for a new devotional plan, feel called to join a wider community of believers, or simply want to see God’s word in a new way, the following resources are available, accessible and - best of all - free.
If you’re looking for a new devotional plan: Bible.com
Bible.com has an incredible variety of studies. From topical plans, to book studies, and interactive plans with audio and video, Bible.com likely has the study you’re looking for.
If you want to connect with other sisters in Christ: She Reads Truth
She Reads Truth is a women’s Bible reading app built around the idea of community. Geared toward Christian woman, the app provides access to daily readings and encourages readers to connect with each other online.
If you’d rather watch than read: The Bible Project
The Bible Project uses visual storytelling to communicate Biblical principles and studies in a clear, aesthetically pleasing way. Using animated illustrations, the Bible Project brings God’s word to life, making book outlines, themes and even word studies easy to understand. The combination of sound theology and creativity make this website great for anyone looking for a new way of understanding God’s word.
If you’d rather listen than read: SermonAudio
SermonAudio lets users stream video and audio sermons from thousands of different speakers, making it easy to hear intelligent insight into God’s word wherever you go. In addition, the app version of SermonAudio contains a “Local Church Finder,” that, as the name implies, can help you find a local church.
If you want to dive deeper into God’s word: Blue Letter Bible
This powerful tool gives you access to over 30 Bible versions, text and audio commentaries and other valuable tools that can help strengthen your understanding of God’s word. Simply tap on a verse to see different insights, translations and even access to original Greek and Hebrew texts.
If you need quiet time: Abide
Abide gives users access to devotions in the form of meditation sessions. With scripture, soothing background music and a personal journal, Abide can help you stick to your dedicated time with God. The guided meditations are available in different themes and in varying lengths of time, letting you choose a session that’s best for you.
If you want to improve your prayer life: Echo Prayer
Echo streamlines your prayers, letting you track what you’re praying for, setting prayer reminders and guiding prayer time. The app also lets you connect with other users and share prayer requests within small groups.
These are just a few of the many powerful tools that can help you be more intentional about your study of God’s word. God has blessed us with modern technology and through it, accessibility - and it’s up to us to use it to better get to know His word.
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” (Psalm 119:105, English Standard Version)
May each new tool you use help you see God’s light on your path a little brighter.
