In the latest episode of their newly-launched web series on Facebook Watch, pop star Justin Bieber and his wife Hailey opened up about how their faith in Jesus is keeping them anchored during the coronavirus lockdown.
The Biebers, who are holed-up in Justin's home in Ontario, Canada, spoken candidly of trusting in the Lord and being part of a supportive faith community.
"What is your anchor that keeps you pushing? Obviously like our faith?" Justin asked his wife as they played Jenga. "You and I have the same belief system. We believe in Jesus and His forgiveness and salvation, just that whole thing.
"Do you think that that's having your anchor in your spirit? Like, knowing that regardless of what's going on in the world you kind of have that security?”
Hailey replied: "Totally. Not only knowing that we have the peace of Jesus and we can lean on Him during this time and we can read the Bible. We also have our church community that has been constant through this whole thing.”
Justin and Hailey attend Pastor Judah Smith's "Churchome" - an entirely online worship gathering headquartered in Los Angeles.
Hailey explained how regularly attending a church service had helped her and Justin keep connected with others despite being completely isolated.
“Being able to, every Wednesday, we watch our church services and there's still that real sense of community even in isolation," she said. "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. I'm actually so surprised with the different ways we've been able to keep up with our community and connect.”
In a previous episode, the pair talked about having to forgive each other after previously breaking up on bad terms.
"There was a lot of forgiveness that you needed to have towards me and vice versa. We both had made mistakes. I think when we understand how much God has forgiven us and given us grace, it gives us the ability to give each other grace," Justin said. "I totally agree," Hailey replied. "You take a person with all of their mistakes and faults and all of the decisions that they've made."
"But how do you forgive someone who doesn't deserve to be forgiven?" Justin asked.
Hailey replied: "Because we know that we were forgiven first."
