As 2017 is coming to an end, it’s about time Christian companies drew a line and find out what made humankind love, bookmark, save and share this year. As one of the most popular apps for Christians worldwide, an online version of the Bible published their 2017 Year in Review.
As it showed, the most popular Bible verse of this year is Joshua 1:9.
“This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
The same review proved that this year, more people than ever have been studying Christianity via their smartphones.
More precisely, there have been 1.4 billion highlights, bookmarks and notes created just in one app. This is by far one of the most impressive benefits technology has upon Christians from around the globe.
