‘Jesus is our hope’, pop sensation Justin Bieber has told his millions of fans.
The Canadian popstar recently shared his Christian faith in an Instagram post, telling his 143 million followers on the social media platform that ‘Jesus is the answer to our shame, guilt, condemnation, jealousy, bitterness, unforgiveness, selfishness the list goes on…’
Bieber posted a short statement about his hope in Jesus, alongside an image containing the words ‘JESUS IS OUR HOPE’ in black lettering on a grey background.
In the message, Bieber told his fans – who call themselves ‘Beliebers’ – that ‘Jesus came to bring healing!’
‘I don’t know what idea of Jesus you have but Jesus came to save us,’ he wrote. ‘He came to sacrifice himself on the cross so that you and I could have a way out. Jesus took the punishment of our wrongs so that we can walk with God with no insecurities or shame. So we can walk in the FULLNESS OF ALL THAT GOD HAS FOR US!!’
Telling his fans that ‘God has a full extraordinary life for you’, the popstar asked if they ‘trust God enough to let go of some things’, such as greed, bitterness, and unforgiveness.
‘Give it to God,’ he added. ‘He welcomes us with open arms and he isn’t surprised by our mess. My hope is in a person and his name is Jesus.’
