YouVersion infographicIn the beginning, just five years ago today, Apple introduced their mobile App Store to the world. Since then the use of smartphones and other internet connected mobile devices has taken the world by storm.

In the beginning God was there… when the app store first opened there were only 200 free apps available. One of the free apps was God’s Holy Word… specifically YouVersion’s Bible App for iOS.

Since then YouVersion has constantly improved the functionality of the app and greatly increased the number of languages available to 25.

YouVersion has also introduced versions of their app for numerous other mobile devices such as BlackBerry, Windows Phone, and many others. In addition an online version is freely available to anyone with a web browser and an internet connection.

In the beginning God was there, today He is still here changing lives through the power of His word! The statistics are truly amazing! At any given moment in time 66,000 people are using the Bible app. Every second 9 people highlight a passage of scripture. Every second 3 people share a passage of scripture with someone else.

Let’s pause and give God the glory for His Word is STILL changing lives even in our modern, interconnected world! Install the Bible app today and then share it with someone else.

“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever” Isaiah 40:8 ESV
