Justin Bieber, world-famous music sensation, has been increasingly open about his faith recently. Bieber, adored by millions around the world, has one of the most influential Instagram accounts, with over 118 million followers.
Having such influence in this day and age is a huge responsibility, and Justin uses this influence to share the love of Christ.
In the last month alone, Bieber has shared two sermons on the power of the Holy Spirit by pastor Rich Wilkerson:
This weekend, he shared a video of himself leading worship in a church service, singing the powerful “Never Would Have Made It” by Gospel singer Marvin Sapp. The singer, 25, attached a lengthy caption to the emotional post, where he talked about leaning on his faith through difficult times.

Sang at church last night. God is pulling me through a hard season. Having trust in Jesus at your worst times is the absolute hardest. But he is faithful to complete what he started. I also want to thank my wife for being such a huge support in my life through this season.. it says in the bible count it ALL JOY when you face trials of various kinds. Sounds insane considering when u face trials u feel terrible. But if we are grateful and worship god for what we do have in that season there is so much power in that… whatever pain you are going through just keep telling yourself THIS WONT LAST! Love you guys we in this together

“Sounds insane considering when you face trials you feel terrible.” “But if we are grateful and worship God for what we do have in that season, there is so much power in that… whatever pain you are going through just keep telling yourself THIS WONT LAST!” he added.
“Love you guys, we in this together.”
Bieber’s post comes after he reached out to his fans in March, asking them to pray for him.

Just wanted to keep you guys updated a little bit hopefully what I’m going through will resonate with you guys. Been struggling a lot. Just feeling super disconnected and weird.. I always bounce back so I’m not worried just wanted to reach out and ask for your guys to pray for me. God is faithful and ur prayers really work thanks .. the most human season I’ve ever been in facing my stuff head on..
Please keep this popstar in your prayers; he must be facing a huge onslaught by the devil for the phenomenal stand that he is taking for Jesus in a city of sin.
