Sponsor a verse is an innovative initiative created in collaboration with The Word for the World, a Bible translation organisation whose mission is to empower indigenous people and organisations to complete the work of Bible translation.
Each piece of art work and verse presented here is uniquely created by artists and designers who are passionate about using their creative gifts to support this work.
We believe that God created all languages on earth and they should all have the Word of God in their language.
Having the Word of God in our mother tongue is something many of us take for granted. Being able to read God’s promises, to know and understand his love and what he did for us, and to know him in a personal way through his Word, is a treasured gift that has transformed the lives of many of those able to read his Word in their own language. Surprisingly, for many this is still not a reality.
Once we make a connection between the living Word of God and how God directly impacts and changes people's lives through it, lifting them out of a pit of destruction, we begin to relate more personally to the Bible's power and realise the need for Bible translation.
Sponsor a Verse gives supporters something real and tangible they can see and touch to remind them of the impact they have when supporting Bible translation work.
God's glorious and precious creation, so rich in beauty and diversity, and so unique in each person, community and language, is important, relevant and designed by God. Each language group deserves the gift of knowing God through his Word directly in their own language, a language designed by God to speak directly into their hearts to fulfil his purpose in their lives.
In supporting this work you are helping to fulfil Revelation 7 : 9 - ‘After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.’
