My Favorite Bible Apps

My Favorite Bible Study Apps for devotions, reading, listening to, and studying the Bible | scriptureand.blogspot.


Smartphones seem to have taken over our culture.  We are often warned about the dangers of cell phones: distractions when driving (or even walking), the decline of social interactions, and the lack of mental focus to name a few.  However, smartphones can be a tool when used properly  Here are some apps that will help you learn more about God from His Word.


Devotionals:

Our Daily Bread

Many are familiar with the Our Daily Bread daily devotional that you can get in the mail or pick up at many churches.  However, you can now listen to it on your phone through their app available from Apple, Android, and Kindle Fire.  I love that you can listen to this instead of just read it.  And the corresponding Bible passage can be opened up through a link to BibleGateway.com in the app.  Some of the great features include setting up daily reminders, opening it directly to today's devotional, and changing to one of many languages.  You can also follow Our Daily Bread on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.  I like following them on Facebook because the devotional will pop in my newsfeed later in the day to remind me what I read.

Keys for Kids is like the Our Daily Bread app but specifically geared toward children.  The same print devotions that your kid can order through the mail can be listened to or read in the app.  While it doesn't have all of the features (no daily reminder or direct links to the Bible passages), it does also have Live Stream of Keys for Kids Radio and On Demand listening of Keys for Kids Radio programs.  It is also available from Apple, Android, and Kindle Fire and several other methods like podcasts and social media.  I like following Keys for Kids on Facebook so that I can see what my son listened to that morning.  Here is my full review of the Keys for Kids app.


Bibles:

Bible apps are great because you can have a Bible right in your pocket at all times.  If you've never used an integrated Hebrew/Greek dictionary is great to understand what the English word is trying to translate and can even show you all of the other instances the Hebrew or Greek word was used in the Bible.  Also, if you are trying to find a verse, the search feature is awesome.  You can add personal notes and sometimes tags that will sync across other devices linked to your account.  You can purchase additional resources and carry your entire library of commentaries and study notes in your phone or tablet.  I use my Bible apps all the time.

Bible Study with Accordance

I have used several Bible apps and this one is very good.  This app is free and it includes some free resources like an ESV with an integrated Strongs Dictionary, Easton's Bible Dictionary, and some maps.  If you want to add on other resources like other translations, commentaries, atlases, and study Bible notes, you will have to purchase them.  You can also purchase software for Windows or Mac which can access the same resources from your account.  This app is great for the free ESV with Strong's alone.  



Bible by Olive Tree

This is my Bible app of choice (though Accordance was a very close second).  With this free app you can download many Bible translations for free (and some other dictionaries and commentaries), but you will have to purchase ones that have the integrated Strong's concordances.  Unlike Accordance, the software for Windows and Mac are also free.  In addition to most of the features that Accordance has, this app also lets you tag your notes so you can find them by topic.


YouVersion Bible

YouVersion is a very popular Bible app.  The app is free and you can access all of the Bible translations for free as well when you are online.  Most of the Bible translations are available to download as well.  This app is very different from the other Bible apps in that it is not focused on other resources like commentaries, Hebrew/Greek dictionaries, and atlases.  It only has the Bible itself along with the ability to highlight and add notes.  However, it does have free audio for about 15 different translations including ESV, KJV, NASB, and NLT.  If you like to listen to your Bible, this app would be great for you! 

Kids Bible Apps:

Bible App For Kids

The Bible App for Kids is made by Life.Church, the same people who made the YouVersion Bible App.  This is basically a story Bible for Kids in an app version.  It has audio that will read the words if desired.  You can also touch part of the illustrations to see animations and find gems or questions.  Each of the 41 stories can be downloaded onto your phone (and can be individually deleted to add other stories).  It's even available in quite a few languages... all for free.  You can also find free videos, coloring pages, printable booklets, and parent guides on their website for each story.

Slugs and Bugs

My daughter loves Slugs and Bugs and she loves listening to their music on this app.  It has videos of some of her favorite silly songs as well as some Bible verse songs.  Five of their videos are available for free and you can upgrade to download 22 more.  There are also games to help you memorize Bible verses and a matching game.  This free app is only available for Apple products.

Bible Memorization:


Fighter Verses

Fighter Verses is a Bible memorization program used in John Piper's Bethlehem Baptist Church.  It is basically annual sets of verses for Christians to memorize.  The purpose is to arm Christians (especially children) with God's Word so that they can be prepared to "fight the good fight of faith" (1 Timothy 6:12).  This app lets you keep track of which verses you have memorized and you can review them through several different methods (all similar to fill in the blank). Each review method has 5 levels to practice.  If you are looking to memorize the Bible and would like direction on what verses to memorize and how to review them, the low price of this app is well worth the investment.


What is your favorite Bible app?  Let me know in the comments below.

Oh, My Saviour Crucified

Oh My Saviour Crucified: In the Sinless, in God's sight, Sin is justly brought to light. Robert C Chapman | scriptureand.blogspot.com

Oh, My Saviour Crucified

by Robert C. Chapman


Tunes: 

Verse 1:
Oh, my Saviour crucified
Near Thy cross would I abide,
Gazing with adoring eye
On Thy dying agony.
Revelation 5:12 saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.”
1 Corinthians 2:2 For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified

Verse 2:
Jesus bruised and put to shame,
Isaiah 53:5 But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed.
Hebrews 12:2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 
Tells the glories of God's name;
Isaiah 52:11 As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied; By His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, as He will bear their iniquities.
Holy judgment there I found,
Romans 3:26 for the demonstration, I say, of His righteousness at the present time, so that He would be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
Grace did there o'er sin abound.
Romans 5:20-21 The Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, even so grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Verse 3:
God is love I surely know,
1 John 4:16 We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
In the Saviour's depth of woe,
Mark 9:12 And He [Jesus] said to them, “Elijah does first come and restore all things. And yet how is it written of the Son of Man that He will suffer many things and be treated with contempt
In the Sinless, in God's sight,
Speaking of Jesus in 2 Corinthians 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
Sin is justly brought to light.
Romans 8:3-4 For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
1 Corinthians 4:5 Therefore do not go on passing judgment before the time, but wait until the Lord comes who will both bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of men’s hearts; and then each man’s praise will come to him from God.

Verse 4:

In His spotless soul's distress,
Hebrews 7:26-27 For it was fitting for us to have such a high priest, holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners and exalted above the heavens; who does not need daily, like those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the sins of the people, because this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.
I have learnt my guiltiness;
Psalm 32:5 I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I did not hide; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord”; And You forgave the guilt of my sin. Selah.
Oh how vile my low estate,
Isaiah 64:6 For all of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment; And all of us wither like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.
Since my ransom was so great!
1 Peter 1:18-19 knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.

Verse 5:
Rent the veil that closed the way
To my home of heavenly day,
Mark 15:38 And the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.
Hebrews 6:19-20 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil, where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek. 
In the flesh of Christ the Lord,
1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit;
Ever be His name adored!
Revelation 5:13 And every created thing which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all things in them, I heard saying, “To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever.”

Verse 6:
Yet in sight of Calvary,
Contrite should my spirit be,
Isaiah 66:2 “For My hand made all these things, thus all these things came into being,” declares the Lord. “But to this one I will look, to him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word.
Psalm 51:17  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; A broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.
Rest and holiness there find
Fashioned like my Saviour's mind.
Hebrews 4:10 For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His.

Keys For Kids Devotional Review

Keys for Kids Daily Devotional Review | scriptureand.blogspot.com


My son has a really awesome Sunday School teacher.  They do a lot of hands on activities.  They even made a topographic map of Paul's missionary journeys out of salt dough!!  Yes, I realize how blessed our family is.  A few years ago she gave my son a mail subscription to Keys for Kids daily devotional because she wanted to make sure he was getting into the Bible every day.  My son loved it and would read all of the stories.  I even had to make sure that he only did that day so that he would have something new to read tomorrow.

Then, he noticed in one mailing that they had an app.  Like most kids, my son loves anything electronic (though we have limits on his electronic time) and was thrilled to try out the app.  He loved reading or listening to the daily devotional on his iPod instead of reading it in the booklet, but the app was a little glitchy, often closing out before he got the chance to finish reading it.  When I contacted Keys for Kids, they said that they already had a new app in the works and it would be a few months before it was available.  So we went back to the mail version until the new app was completed.

However, recently they released their new app available for both Android and Apple.  It is very similar to the old app but without the glitches.  


What We Love About the Keys For Kids App:


Keys for Kids Daily Devotional App Review | scriptureand.blogspot.com
  • It has a daily devotional each day with a story that kids will enjoy and teaches them a lesson. Each devotional also has a few Bible verse references to look up and read, a key verse that is written out, a key message for the day, and a way for the kids to apply the key message.  You can read it or you can listen to it.  The devotional takes less than five minutes but gives your child something from the Bible to think about every day.
Keys for Kids Daily Devotional App Review - Daily Devotions | scriptureand.blogspot.com
  • You can live stream Keys for Kids Radio.  It has lots of great Christian music.  Some of the songs are geared directly towards kids and other Christian songs that everyone will enjoy.  It also has radio programs like Red Rock Mysteries, Down Gilead Lane, The Pond, Jungle Jam, and Adventures in Odyssey.  Check out the program schedule here.
Keys for Kids Daily Devotional App Review - Live Streaming | scriptureand.blogspot.com
  • You can also listen to the current episode of Down Gilead Lane, Red Rock Mysteries, The Pond, Paws & Tales, Kids Corner, We Kids, and Karen & Kids anytime you want.  If you like these programs but the program schedule doesn't fit yours, then this is perfect for your family.
Keys for Kids Daily Devotional App Review - On Demand Radio Programs | scriptureand.blogspot.com

What We Change About the Keys for Kids App:

We LOVE the newly updated app and I LOVE that my son is reading God's Word daily.  It is becoming part of his daily routine.  The only thing I would improve would be making the Bible verse references hyperlinks so that the kids are more likely to actually read them.  Also, having a default setting that would decide what you want the app to do when you open (play the audio daily devotional, just open the daily devotional without playing the audio, or just opening to the main menu...) would be a great option.


Other Ways to Get Keys for Kids:

Plus you can follow Keys for Kids on Facebook or Keys for Kids of Twitter where they share both the kids daily devotional and a parent minute (you can listen or read or listen and read at the same time).  It's a great way for parents to see what their kids are reading.

If you love the idea of a daily devotional for your child but don't have a smartphone or tablet, then you can check them out at their website.  The daily devotionals are available 14 different ways, from mail subscription to email and e-readers to podcasts.

Who breaks the power of sin and darkness?
1 Corinthians 15:56-57 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law; but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

and leaves us breathless in awe and wonder?

Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire.
The King of Glory, the King above all kings
About Jesus in 1 Timothy 6:15 which He will bring about at the proper time—He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords,

Jesus, I sing for all that You've done for me
Psalm 13:6 I will sing to the Lord, because He has dealt bountifully with me.

Verse 3:
Who brings our chaos back into order?
1 Corinthians 14:33 for God is not a God of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.
Who makes the orphan a son and daughter?
Psalm 68:5 A father of the fatherless and a judge for the widows, is God in His holy habitation.
The King of Glory, the King of Glory

Verse 4:
Who rules the nations with truth and justice?
Revelation 16:5 And I heard the altar saying, “Yes, O Lord God, the Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments.”
Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance?
Of God in Habakkuk 3:4 His radiance is like the sunlight; He has rays flashing from His hand, and there is the hiding of His power.
Matthew 17:2 And He was transfigured before them; and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became as white as light.

Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
1 Corinthians 15:25-26 For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be abolished is death.

Evangelistic Bible Verses

Evangelistic Bible Verses | scriptureand.blogspot.com


In a recent Sunday School class on evangelism, we looked at many of the different Bible verses that are used to share the gospel.  Then, in order to have something available at any time, we chose a verse for each topic and wrote part of it on a card that will fit in our wallet.  

We looked at several different methods of sharing the gospel (ABCs, The Roman Road, Wordless Book or bracelet...) and then individually choose which one we like the most and practiced it on each other.  Practicing was great because it helped us to be more comfortable with sharing outside of class.

Evangelistic Bible Verses


Romans 3:23 | scriptureand.blogspot.com


The sin problem:

Ecclesiastes 12:14 - For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil.

Ezekiel 18:4 - Behold, all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine. The soul who sins will die.
Matthew 12:36 - But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment.
Luke 12:2 - But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.

Romans 5:12 - Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned—
Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Ephesians 2:1-3 - And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.
Hebrews 9:27 - And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment,


John 3:16 | scriptureand.blogspot.com



Christ’s death for us:

John 3:16 - “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
Romans 5:8 - But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 - Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.  For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
2 Corinthians 5:21- He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
1 Timothy 1:15-16 - It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, among whom I am foremost of all.

1 Peter 3:18 - For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit;

You must believe and have faith:

John 3:16 - “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

Romans 4:5 - But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness,
Romans 10:9-11,17 - that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes in Him will not be disappointed.”

Yet for this reason I found mercy, so that in me as the foremost, Jesus Christ might demonstrate His perfect patience as an example for those who would believe in Him for eternal life.

Romans 10:9-10 | scriptureand.blogspot.com

You must repent of your sins:

Mark 1:15 - and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”
Acts 20:21 - solemnly testifying to both Jews and Greeks of repentance toward God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Acts 26:18 - to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.’
2 Corinthians 7:9-10 - I now rejoice, not that you were made sorrowful, but that you were made sorrowful to the point of repentance; for you were made sorrowful according to the will of God, so that you might not suffer loss in anything through us. For the sorrow that is according to the will of God produces a repentance without regret, leading to salvation, but the sorrow of the world produces death.
2 Peter 3:9 - The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.

Romans 3:20 - because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin.
Romans 11:6 - But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works, otherwise grace is no longer grace.
Ephesians 2:8-9 - For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Titus 3:5 - He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit,
James 2:10 - For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all.

Acts 4:12 | scriptureand.blogspot.com

There’s only one way to be saved:

John 14:6 - Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
John 15:23 - He who hates Me hates My Father also.
Acts 4:12 - “And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”

Don’t wait to be saved:

2 Corinthians 6:2 - for He says,“At the acceptable time I listened to you, And on the day of salvation I helped you.” Behold, now is “the acceptable time,” behold, now is “the day of salvation”—
Romans 9:28 - “for the Lord will execute His word on the earth, thoroughly and quickly.”
Romans 13:11 - Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed.
2 Peter 3:10 - But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up.


The Lord wants all people to be saved:

2 Peter 3:9 - The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
1 Timothy 2:3-4 - This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Everyone needs forgiveness, the kindness of a Saviour
Titus 3:4-7 But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by His grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
