The 21-Day Challenge: A Fresh Start

small image

You've shared with us time and time again that reading the Bible is important to you. It's something you want to do daily, a goal you set for yourself each year. We also know this is that time of year when life happens…you wake up late and miss your morning reading, someone in your house gets sick, or you lose momentum in Leviticus.

YouVersion loves to help you follow through on your good intentions to read the Bible. So for the third year, we're kicking off the 21-Day Challenge to encourage you to keep up (or get back on track) with your daily Bible habit!

And, to help cheer you on, from January 21 to February 10, if you complete the day's selections from at least one Bible Plan each day, you'll earn a special 21-Day Challenge badge on your YouVersion profile. Also…

You'll be entered to win one of
5 iPad minis , 5 Google Nexus 7 tablets, or 21 YouVersion prize packs!*

If you've already started a Bible Plan this year, that's great! Just make sure you keep up with each day's reading—and that each day gets checked off as complete. (See our blog for all the 21-Day Challenge rules and details.) And please tell your friends!

If you haven't signed up for your next Bible Plan yet, the 21-Day Challenge is just one more great reason to start. Can't decide which plan to choose? Here are some ideas:

  • 21 Day Fast This fasting devotional explores biblical passages about intimacy with God, questions for reflection, and encouragement to pray.
  • 21 Days Of Powerful Breakthroughs This devotional daily leads you with Scripture, clear direction, and quiet reflection to help you overcome life's barriers.
  • This Book Is Alive This unique devotional presents short video stories about young people pursuing the meaning of their favorite Bible verses in their everyday lives.

3 Ways to Make the Bible a Daily Focus this Year

Start your New Year off with #Verse2014 and a new Bible Plan. Click here.
"Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth…" —Isa. 43:18–19, ESV

Bring the Bible into Your Everyday

Happy New Year! God is constantly in the process of making "new creations" (2 Cor. 5:17). But in certain seasons—like the coming of a New Year—we tend to be more aware of His renewals than at other times.

As you consider goals and resolutions for 2014, here are three simple ways you can make the Bible a daily part of your life:

  1. Find your #Verse2014. Choose one verse that you can focus on throughout 2014. Invite it into your life, display it, and share it with people you know.
  2. Commit to a Bible Plan. This has helped so many in our community make God's Word a daily part of their life. Sign up for a short, 20- or 30-day devotional. Build your confidence by completing your first plan. Then come back for another. We've included a list below of some of our favorite starters.
  3. Share the Word. Invite family and friends to read with you. Help them get the Bible App, show them how to sign up for the plan you're using, then discuss what you've read. Inspire others by sharing what you're reading in emails, texts, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. God's Word comes alive in community (Heb. 4:12).
