Okay, okay, we’ll be honest: that title is pure click-bait. There is no competition when it comes to personal faith in Jesus, nor is there a ranking system to how you live-out or share your faith, but there are always opportunities to learn and grow and learn, and we could learn a few things from Justin Bieber.
You can’t deny the guy is talented! He can play multiple sports competitively, play multiple instruments professionally, and can sing his way to the top of the charts. However, the skill we’re most impressed by is his consistent ability to weave Jesus into the conversation and tell people about Him.
A recent one-paragraph Instagram post simply and honestly shared about his past and present insecurities and how he is learning to let Jesus lead his life.
“I want to walk in the plans God has for me and not try to do it on my own. I want to give up my selfish desires daily so I can be a good husband and future dad. I’m grateful that I can walk with Jesus as he leads the way.” — Justin Bieber
In previous interviews, he has talked openly about his faith in Jesus, his turning away from sin, his reliance on grace, the influence of Christian mentors, his love of his wife, and how he believes Jesus saved him. Here are 3 things we can learn from Justin Bieber about sharing Jesus.
3 things we can learn from Justin Bieber about sharing Jesus:
Keep It Real
Faith is a journey, not a destination, and people relate to our humanity, not our perfection. Justin does well to show the ups and downs of his life and his faith which helps people understand that Christians are just broken people being made whole through Jesus.
Keep It Simple
The Gospel is simply profound and profoundly simple. A great testimony shares how your story and God’s story intersect. Justin does well to explain simply what his life was life before Jesus, why he chose Jesus and how his life has changed (and continues to change) since following Jesus.
Keep It About Jesus
Jesus is the most revolutionary person to have ever lived and an encounter with Him can change you forever. Rather than getting caught up in semantics, arguments, and theological differences, Justin does well to continually point people to Jesus. He ensures Jesus is the hero, not him.
