    WATCH: Justin Bieber Opens Up About His Faith In God, Credits God For Saving His Life

    Over the last couple of years, we have watched as Justin Bieber has transformed from a troublesome teenager into a young man with his heart on fire for God. 

    In a recent interview with Zane Lowe of Apple Music, the 26-year-old pop star opened up about his journey to faith, “turning away from sin,” and his relationship with God. 

    Lowe, a DJ, and Apple Music host, asked the pop star what brought him back to his faith, to which Justin credited a call for “obedience” and “turning away from sin.”

    “I really took a deep dive into my faith. I believed in Jesus but I never really, like, when it says following Jesus is actually turning away from sin … what it talks about it in the Bible is that there’s no faith without obedience.”

    Bieber, who married Hailey Baldwin in 2018, added that the grace of God is what saved him, and what sustains him.

    “The way I look at God and my relationship with Jesus is I’m not trying to earn God’s love by doing good things. God has already loved me for who I am before I did anything to earn or deserve it. It’s a free gift by accepting Jesus, giving your life to him and what he did is the gift. The forgiveness is the thing that we look at and we go, you know, I’m going to worship you, God, because you gave me something so good.”

    Bieber, who has been open about his life pre-Jesus, shared that he didn’t think he’d still be alive if it wasn’t for his relationship with God. He credited positive, Christian influences in his life for putting him on the right path and introducing him to a personal relationship with Jesus. 

    “So I’m very, very grateful to have influences in my life that have played a huge part in me seeing their relationship with Jesus, and their relationship with their wives, and their relationship with their kids, and saying, ‘That’s what I want.'”

    The singer, who just released his first album in over two years, ended the interview by pointing out how broken the world is, and how in need of a savior everyone is. 

    “The pain in the world is just so, it’s obvious. And people are looking for hope, and they’re looking for a way out, and they’re looking for an escape, and they’re looking for truth … I’ve gotten the opportunity with my journey to just see a God who accepts me, loves me. They call him the savior, and I believe that to be true — that Jesus saved me.”
