Amazingly, many Christians are still Bible illiterate. In our visual culture of movies, Youtube, music and television, it seems as though people just don’t find time (or make time) to read anymore. Reading our Bible is one of the essential habits we as followers of Jesus should form in our daily devotional lives. In order to know God, we must know what he says about life, about the world and about us. Consider the Bible as God’s love letter to humanity. The Bible is also more than just a text book. It says about itself:

“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” – Heb. 4:12

The Bible is both “living” and “active”. The Word of God is alive and functions in order to activate faith and power in our lives. We have put together a list of a handful of Bible apps for you to check out to help stimulate and cultivate good Bible reading habits:
