Justin Bieber is not backing down from proclaiming the gospel.
He recently released an album not for the Christian community, but for his secular fans. It’s called Justice.
Artists joining Bieber for the gospel album included BEAM, Brandon Love, Chandler Moore, Pink Sweats, Judah Smith, Tori Kelly, and Lauren Walters.
Tori Kelly said, “So happy to be a part of this project. I love getting to sing about Jesus and his unconditional love for all of us.”
Justice is a little different…because besides his original music, the album features audio from Martin Luther King Jr. speeches.
Here are a few of the lines from the songs:
“Sweat, blood, tears ‘pon the cross/Did you know He paid the cost for you?”
- Where You Go I Follow:
“On the third day, yeah, You rose up/And You beat death once and for all…But, Lord, You Always come and save me/God Almighty, my safety/You’re my end, You’re my new beginning”
- Afraid to Stay ends with a very pro-life scripture verse:
“You saw the essence of me, before I was formed/Before I existed, all of my days were written in your book/Psalms 139:13-16
Bieber’s transformational shift from a “bad boy” and an addict to an outspoken witness for Christ is powerful.
Now he’s even visiting prisons to share the gospel.
Here are a couple of videos of his songs:
