Global Share the Bible Day: A New Christmas Tradition
Sharing God's Love
YouVersion, a software application for your smartphone, introduced a new Christmas tradition in 2010: Global Share the Bible Day.
On December 25, the YouVersion community shares the story of God's love with their friends and family through mobile and online communication.
Many Christians get so caught up in the hustle-and-bustle of the holidays that they lose sight of the reason for their celebration: God's indescribable gift, Jesus Christ.
Does this describe you?
Global Share the Bible Day is a tangible way to remind people of the real Christmas story through God's Word, the Bible.
- 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. -- John 3:16
- For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. -- Romans 6:23
- Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! -- 2 Corinthians 9:15
Global Share the Bible Day is a practical reminder of what Christmas is all about. It helps you start a conversation about your faith, the Bible, and Jesus Christ. This Christmas, join the YouVersion community and celebrate God's love with your loved ones.
