Sunday, February 5, will be the biggest day of the year in American sports. And, although the top two teams in American football are facing off as rivals on the field, several players from both sides share a love for the Bible. Now, thanks to YouVersion partner The Increase, listen to some of the players from today’s game telling why they love the Bible App:
…when I wake up in the morning, I just grab my phone, log on to the app, and I can read it before I get out of bed.
DEVIN MCCOURTY, NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
It’s just easy to pull out your phone — any inspiration you need, whatever struggles you’re going through — you’ve got everything you need right there.
JOSH HARRIS, ATLANTA FALCONS
