Justin Bieber may be known for his reckless ways, boy-band hair, and run-ins with the law. But during a recent concert, Bieber seized the opportunity to unashamedly share about his faith in Jesus Christ. And it’s sure to move you to tears.
Justin Bieber isn’t perfect, nor does he pretend to have it all together. In fact, the 23-year-old has made his fair share of mistakes in the limelight– and hopes other will learn from his former bad-boy ways.
Over the last year, Justin has spoken publicly about his journey — his failures, setbacks, and humiliating mistakes. And instead of obnoxious selfies and destructive posts, Bieber’s recent posts to social media are different to say the least.
Last week Bieber took to Instagram to share a “Then” mugshot, beside a “Now” photo of him smiling, to remind the world that it’s never too late to turn to Christ. The famous young celebrity wrote, “I LOVE THIS because it reminds me I’M NOT EXACTLY WHERE I WANT TO BE, BUT THANK GOD I’M NOT WHERE I USED TO BE!! THE BEST IS YET TO COME. DO YOU BELIEVE IT?”
Additionally, for his birthday on March 1st, the young icon revealed that all he wanted for his birthday was to “be a better man.”
These days, Justin Bieber’s social media pages are cluttered with photos of his favorite Bible verses, pastor’s quotes, and inspirational messages of hope — a far cry from theold Justin Bieber’s lifestyle.
Bieber has come a long way since his first YouTube video at 14 — and there’s no doubt the world-renown young singer has transformed his life from the inside out.
Instead of being arrested for speeding, skinny dipping and urinating in public, Justin’s new life is consumed with his Savior. The young star was recently baptized, added a few new tattoos expressing his faith, and even asked a pastor to present the Gospel at one of his concerts.
Bieber told E! about his new tattoos, “It was a representation of his faith in Jesus and his journey with finding purpose in God.” The singer also has a cross tattoo on his chest and the word “Yeshua,” which is the Hebrew name for “Jesus.” When asked what his favorite song was the young celeb answered, “The Christian song, ‘No Longer Slaves'”
Since dedicating his life to Christ, it’s simply incredible to see all that God has done through Justin Bieber.
On his recent “Purpose Tour” in Paris, Justin Bieber took his faith a step further when he unashamedly led tens of thousands in unashamed worship.
The famous young star casually picked up a guitar and broke out in an impromptu rendition of the old Christian song, “I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever.” As I watched him worship with a humble spirit and reckless abandon, I just couldn’t hold back the tears.
But this isn’t Justin’s first public proclamation of faith. As I watched Justin Bieber share the beauty of salvation in a recent interview, I’ve never felt more proud of a celebrity.
The 23-year-old superstar revealed how “utterly lost” he felt in his former life as a nonbeliever. Justin shared how the emptiness many people experience can only be filled by a relationship with Christ— nobody or nothing else.
“It puts an ease to my soul that I can’t describe,” Justin said about his relationship with Christ.
No matter how young or old you are, Justin’s powerful testimony is sure to move you to tears. Watch Justin Bieber’s powerful interview as he shares about his faith in Jesus Christ:
Praise God for His redeeming love and grace! While listening to Justin’s inspiring story, I just couldn’t help but think of Colossians 1:13-14 which reads,
“God rescued us from dead-end alleys and dark dungeons. He’s set us up in the kingdom of the Son He loves so much, the Son who got us out of the pit we were in, got rid of the sins we were doomed to keep repeating.”
Thank you, Justin Bieber, for sharing your inspiring message of Grace! America needs more men of Faith like you! Please share if you agree!
