The beauty of using your cellphone as an alarm clock is that when you reach over and hit the snooze button, you are only a few taps away from accessing God’s Word. Before you’ve even said good morning to your family or roommates, you can be fully equipped with God’s armor (Ephesians 6:10-20). And while making your coffee and breakfast, instead of scrolling through your newsfeed, you can easily listen to a Psalm or another chapter in the Bible.
While technology can often be a distraction, it can also be a mechanism to encourage your soul and challenge you in your walk with God. As Christians, spiritual disciplines like listening to the Bible and praying are opportunities to reflect and spend time with God. With growing access to technology, this can happen anywhere at any time.
Why is technology important?
Technology provides quick access to God’s Word. Over five billion people in the world now have access to some type of mobile phone connection. More than three million people are using the Internet on a daily basis, and the number of people who have access to technology continues to grow.
Technology can help everyone from almost any country access God’s Word. At Faith Comes By Hearing, technology is central to our mission. We want to partner with you to get God’s Word to everyone and cover the world with His Word! What better way to do this than through the latest technology available?
Whether it is through a free Audio Bible download, the Bible.is app, our podcast, or another platform, people all over the world can have a way to hear God’s Word. The Proclaimer or BibleStick are perfect Bible listening tools for communities with limited access to technology or electricity.
The next time you roll over in the morning and hit snooze, let that be a reminder to dive into God’s Word every day and to share it with others. The Bible is the most important thing—no matter what form it comes in.
