With more than 142 million downloads on smartphones and tablets, YouVersion's Bible app is allowing people around the world to experience the bestselling book in history in new ways. The popular app has partnered with Empowered21 to launch a new 30-day devotional titled "The Spirit Filled Life."
"YouVersion's Bible app has revolutionized the way that believers experience God's Word on a global scale," said Empowered21 President and Global Co-Chair William Wilson. "We are thankful for their support of the Spirit-empowered movement and pray that God will use this series to teach new generations about the power and presence of the Holy Spirit."
"The Spirit Filled Life" series of devotions was created by leaders of the Spirit-empowered movement to challenge the way believers view the Holy Spirit. Topics include renewal, direction, comfort, help, healing, restoration and intercession for the Christian life. Devotionals were designed to bring transformation to the hearts, work, families and ministries of believers around the world.
