Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching. – 1 Timothy 4:13
A wonderful new resource has been released here in Japan, one which I believe will make a lasting impact. One of our partners, the Grace and Mercy Foundation just finished the Public Reading of Scripture Drama Bible App for Japan. It complements the same resources now offered in English and Korean. Hopefully someday other languages as well.
I’ve been a beta tester of sorts with this App having now personally used it in at least 5 countries, perhaps more. It’s been cool to see the response. In addition, I participated in a few reading sessions in Grace and Mercy’s New York office. It’s a neat experience to read the bible in community. In fact, it bolsters one of our core values at Asian Access: We LIVE Community.
Launch Ceremony in Japan
This week I had the privilege of being part of their Launch Ceremony here in Japan. See photos from that day here. Asian Access is proud to partner with Grace and Mercy with the new Drama Bible. Many of those present for the Launch Ceremony were Asian Access alumni and Japan board members. It was amazing to see so many friends and colleagues that day.

I hope you’ll download the App and start applying it in your community. It can easily be used in your business before, after or lunch hour at work. It can be used for home fellowship and in your local church or community center. It’s a wonderful way to let the Word of God seep into your life, shaping you for the life you lead.
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. – Hebrews 4:12
So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it. – Isaiah 55:11
Reading God’s Word will powerfully change your life. Why? Because it leads you to Jesus who is the Way, the Truth and the Life.
Check out the work of this new resource. You won’t regret it! I’ll keep using it: sharing it in our communities across Asia and encouraging my colleagues and friends across Japan to utilize this new resource.
I hope that you’ll use this new tool, too! May it be a blessing to you and the communities in which you live and serve. Let me know how it goes in your community. I’d love to hear.
