Justin Bieber has once again taken to Instagram with a powerful gospel message. Sharing the hope of Christ with his 140 million followers, Bieber declared that "Jesus rose from the dead just as he promised, taking on the sins of humanity". 

The 'Holy' singer went on to say that "believing and receiving this reality changes everything".

"The way you live, the way you love! Accepting his free gift of forgiveness allows you to live a life FREE from guilt and shame! A life not based on your performance. This is good news," he wrote.

The singe went on: "I follow Jesus. Following Jesus doesn’t make me better than anyone else although I know a lot of Christians have made people feel that way.

"Another thing to know about following Jesus is that a lot of the time it doesn’t change our circumstances. What it does do is give us an ETERNAL JOY that lasts through trials and painful seasons. Although people have failed me, Jesus never has." 


The post has received just under a million likes in one day, with many posting replies of encouragement and support for the 26-year-old pop star's willingness to speak out about his faith.

"Thank you for using your platform," one person replied. "Love to see Justin in this new phase✝️" another added.
