Justin and Hailey Bieber have been increasingly vocal about their faith since they got married in 2018. The two consistently talk about their decision to pursue purity before marriage, finding their identity in Christ and leaning on God in both the good and bad times.
The couple, who recently launched a Facebook Watch series, talked about their faith candidly while playing Jenga in the latest episode.
In “Jenga with the Biebers,” Justin and Hailey emphasize how faith has kept them grounded in both their relationship and in life, and that “regardless of what’s going on in the world” they can always rely on their shared faith to help carry them through.
The two talked about how their faith keeps them strong every day but especially during the coronavirus pandemic.
“What is your anchor that keeps you pushing, obviously like our faith? You and I have the same belief system. We believe in Jesus and His forgiveness and salvation, just that whole thing,” Bieber said.
“We have the peace of Jesus and we can lean on Him during this time,” Hailey said during the game. “We can read the Bible and can do so many things. We also have our church community which has been constant during this whole thing. There’s that real sense of community even in isolation.”
Justin chimed in, adding that having the “same belief system” as a married couple and believing in “Jesus and His forgiveness and salvation” keeps them both sane.
Justin, who was set to go out on a worldwide tour this summer, talked about how God always has a plan, even if we can’t see it.
“Everything happens for a reason,” Hailey added. “You have more time to be healthy and happy and prepare. When you do go out you’re going to be strong and healthy and that honestly makes me feel better.”
She also pointed out that they are grateful for a church that is still actively engaging their community, even when they can’t be in the same building worshipping together.
“Being able to, every Wednesday, we watched our church services and there’s still that real sense of community even in isolation. I think that’s honestly helped a lot and staying in touch with the people that we love and care about and who keep us encouraged and pray for us.” Hailey added. “I’m actually so surprised by the different ways we’ve been able to keep up with our community and connect.”
