Justin Bieber shares a sermon
By Kevin Payne
Justin Bieber is once again proclaiming his faith in Jesus Christ by sharing a sermon by Rich Wilkerson, Jr. about the importance of trusting God as opposed to fame and money.
The 23-year-old singer recently made the headlines after sharing his faith during a charity concert for the victims of the Manchester terror attack. Over the weekend, he shared a sermon by Wilkerson, lead pastor of Vous Church in Miami, FL., entitled “Life in the Wheelbarrow.”
Bieber was raised in a Christian home, but an early taste of fame and riches eroded his relationship with God. But, that all changed when he rededicated his life to Christ earlier this year.
Wilkerson said in his sermon, “Sometimes we get seduced by success and think it’ll lead to a place of contentment, but contentment can only be found in the person of Jesus Christ. What is it today that you keep putting your trust in that keeps leaving you in trouble?”
Bieber said that when he looks at the world today, it’s riddled with doubt and insecurity and fear.
“I believe that Jesus gives you the answer,” he said. “Don’t let your hearts be troubled, in fact, he’s commanding us here, do not worry. That sounds like a direct command from Jesus.”
“Worry doesn’t change anything,” he went on to say. “What if trust is the remedy to your trouble? What if trusting in Jesus is the answer to every one of your problems?
The sermon was part of an annual conference put on by Vous Church. This year’s conference ws entitled” In God We Trust.”
Bieber told fans that if they wished to know exactly what he believes they can visit his website.
