We are amazingly blessed by the number and the quality of discipleship building tools that are freely available to us thanks to technology.  Today I want to take a quick look at the web-based Bible app from LifeChurch that is known as YouVersion. is a Bible, but it is much more than just a Bible.  And it is sweeping the world in popularity.
 Here's what you can use this wonderful discipleship resource for:

Read the Bible

Take your choice from hundreds of Bible versions and languages. Compare two versions side by side. You can even choose your font and display size. Make your online Bible experience just the way you like it.  If you want to read or study it from your computer,  here's what it looks like online.

Study the Bible

Highlight in your favorite color, bookmark your favorite Bible verses, and make notes about what you're learning. Not only are you spending time in God's Word, you're building a history of your interaction with the Bible.

Subscribe to Bible Plans

Cover the whole Bible, focus on a topic, or read a devotional from a gifted teacher. Choose your plan and each day you'll find a Bible selection waiting for you.

Take the Bible With You

Download the Bible App for free on any mobile device. When you use the mobile app, your notes, bookmarks, highlights, plans, and more will be automatically synced across all of your devices.

Use It In Church!

You can follow along with message outlines and take notes, read related Bible verses and click through to the expanded passage, vote on a poll and see the results live, ask questions anonymously, give, request prayer, and take it all home with you on your phone. It works with any web-enabled phone, as well as any computer with an internet connection.  Give it a try the next time you're in worship at McLane Church!
