Technological progress – electricity, automobile, GPS and now artificial intelligence – has contributed to global economic growth and made reality catch up with the world of fiction. There’s no denying that new technologies and gadgets have made lives better. But, aside from simplifying your life and saving your precious time (and sometimes money), these gadgets can help in cultivating your passion for God.
I’m a Christian and I do see people practicing and following their set of beliefs, something which I call to be religious. However, to be spiritual is different; I personally believe it’s when you have a close relationship with God and you let your spirituality flow in your daily life.
Now, when you are at this level of spirituality, you want to study, practice and learn more about God so as you can accomplish His purpose. However, living in a modernized and preoccupied world, the only way to carry out your spiritual mission is by equipping yourself with the following gadgets.
“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”
– From Psalm 119:105
One can only understand the true importance of the Bible when you forget that different volumes and versions have been written by different people and focus on the fact that it is scripture breathed by God and revealed to us. It means the words that you see in the Bible come from God.
The Bible is not only the revelation of God’s sovereignty and power, but is also a manual full of instructions to guide people in how they should live and how they should treat others. Furthermore, reading the Bible on a regular basis is the only way to nourish your soul.
Today, Bibles come in multiple debossed designs, styles and colors. Some even have a presentation page and a cover that can be customized.
If you are more tech-savvy, you can opt for digital Bibles.
I’ve heard some say that Bibles are as precious as money (I think more!). Well, if your money is kept safe in your wallet or in a bank, then why not buy a Bible cover so that your Bible could last longer?
From floral or geometric debossed designs to classic leather or sturdy faux leather designs, you’ve got all types of great-looking Bible covers. Recently, I’ve seen a few with Bible verses and words like, “Be the salt and light”, “Love never fails”, “Seek first His kingdom.” Some leading providers even allow you to customize your own message on the cover.
Bible Study Kit
Bible study supplies come in different sizes and are versatile in styles, but they will all help stay organized.
A typical Bible study kit might include a faux leather portfolio folder with zipper closure (some are even designed with Bible verses), a notebook and pens.
This simple kit will deepen your study of scripture and help you to organize and keep all sermon notes together. Plus, you can even carry it with you during group studies or church time.
Bible Journaling Supplies
The only difference between a Bible study kit and a Bible journaling supply is that the latter has a more personal, vibrant and colorful touch. The Bible journaling kit can include things like coloring pencils, a glitter gel pen set, bookmarks, stickers, stamps and decorative washi tapes.
Made from shatter-proof optical grade acrylic, Bible magnifying sheets are ideal for people with low vision to read their Bible. To top it off, they are thin enough to be left inside your Bible and to be used as bookmarks.
These are matte-coated and beautifully styled tabs that consist of all the Old Testament and New Testament books. And, it’s good to know that the reference for each book is printed on both sides.
