The musical genius of Justin Bieber is back with his first Christian single and it is already inspiring his global following including many Christians. The song is called ‘Holy’ and you can watch it below.
The music video is timely, acknowledging how Covid-19 has affected the world, but how love wins through especially in times of pandemic. It’s a really moving presentation which may move you to tears.
The chorus contains these powerful lyrics: “On God / Runnin’ to the altar like a track star / Can’t wait another second / Cause the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me / Hold me feels so holy.” It’s encouraging to know that no matter what happens we can run to God, feel His embrace and be part of his Holy people.
The video also features Chance the Rapper in the song’s bridge. “We believe in God and God believes in us!”, is one of Chance’s most thought-provoking lines. God certainly does believe in each person and it’s great that Justin Bieber has discovered life’s true meaning. So how did he come to faith?
Did you know that Justin was dedicated to God as a baby. Yet, there was a time in his life when he seemed to turn away from God. He often shares about his spiritual experiences on social media. For example this post to his 148 million followers on Instagram.
As a young boy Justin loved to sing and took to YouTube to share his talents. He was soon discovered by the music industry and has since become “one of the world’s most recognizable stars’. His on and off romances with Selena Gomez were much-publicized however it was Hailey Baldwin that he married in 2018, the model and TV personality, who is also known for her strong Christian witness.
All this hit the headlines, but it was Justin’s return to God that many believers found most newsworthy. We are inspired by his bold stand to share the love of God wherever he goes.
Holy – Justin Bieber and Chance The Rapper
Pray for Justin and Hailey Bieber that God will continue to use them both mightily for His Kingdom. They face much pressure living in the constant gaze of the world and its media which can be hostile to followers of Christ. Pray that they would keep shining His light and always keep it holy.
God wants us all to live a holy life and you too can have a relationship with God by praying this simple prayer.
