A Canadian atheist tried to refute his dad’s faith, so he downloaded a Bible app to find errors in it. Instead, he was drawn in by Jesus and got transformed.
YouVersion Bible App creator and founder Bobby Gruenewald told Billy Hallowell of FaithWire about Scott, the atheist’s fantastic conversion. “He downloaded the [YouVersion] Bible app in an effort to refute his father, who was a Christian,” Bobby said. “He wanted to basically say, ‘Look, I read the Bible, and I’m going to show you why what you believe is wrong.'”
But what turned out was a lovely transformation of a lost son to a child of God. “[Scott] began to see God’s voice in Scripture,” Bobby continued.
“God literally used him reading the Bible app in an effort to try and disprove his father’s religion to lead him into a relationship with Jesus. It just shows the transformational power of scripture.”
Today, Scott has become a believer and follower of Christ.
YouVersion Bible App
Scott’s story is only one of the millions Bobby and his team have heard. God has used the YouVersion Bible app to reveal Himself to His lost children and has led many to a relationship with Christ.
And this week, YouVersion has reached a milestone with 500 million installs.
“We just really feel blessed to be a part of something that God’s done. It’s a hundred percent something God’s done. It’s pretty clear that it’s not something we would be able to do on our own,” Bobby shared.
His team has seen an increase in the number of Bible reading over the years, proving wrong today’s issue that biblical faith is somehow dying.
“The Bible’s alive. We see people turning to His word in huge numbers.”
Statistics showed that Bible reading raised to 21% in 2021 compared to 2020. The growth rose significantly during the pandemic when people turned to God’s word in times of uncertainty.
With the trend today, I believe God is really setting something up that will shake the world. Revival is coming to all generations.
