Top 10 Apps for Spiritual Growth

1. ESV Study Bible

A quick way to browse to the passage you’re looking for is to use the Bible menu at the top of the page. From here, you’ll see every book of the Bible, arranged by Old and New Testament, as well as their chapter numbers.

Ever wanted to go back to the passage you were reading yesterday, but you just couldn’t remember where you were? Check out the History menu at the top of the page to view your previously viewed passages of scripture. Also, you can star any passage to refer back to later from the Favs menu at the top of the page.

If hearing the Bible spoken is helpful in your devotions, click the Listen button at the top of the page to hear the passage you’re on read back to you.

2. The Briefing

Looking at the news headlines and cultural conversations through a Christian worldview.

3. Got Questions?

Do you have a question about God, Jesus, the Bible, or theology? Have you ever needed help understanding a Bible verse or passage? Are there any spiritual issues in your life for which you need advice or counsel? Again, this is not to be a substitute for your Pastor, if you have questions that you are dealing with I would love to discuss it and help you work through it. However, this is a great resource if you need a question answered quickly or to help you double check what I say is accurate and to see other point of views. For example, I had the question if we that believe the Bible only believe the earth is at the most 10k years old, how can we see light from stars millions of light years away? I did not know the answer and did not have any resources to go to, but the website was able to help me get put back on the right direction.

4. Right Now Media

 

RightNow Media is like “Netflix for the church” because we have a huge library with thousands of video sessions that people can access anytime, anywhere. Our creative team films and produces RightNow Media Originals featuring teaching from respected teachers and pastors. We also distribute video resources produced by over 100 other major Christian publishers and ministries.

Recommendations:

Reformed Theological Seminary: Although it is a Presbyterian seminary. My favorite course is the History and Theology of the Puritans by JI Packer. If you want to grow like Christ then you have much to learn from the Puritans. Other notable professors: D.A. Carson (The New Perspective on Paul), Wayne Grudem, John Frame, and Alistair Begg (A Seminar on Expository Preaching).

Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary: John Stott Lectures
