Pop star Justin Bieber implored fans to think deeper about the real Christmas message, remembering to celebrate not only Christ’s life but also “his death, burial, and resurrection.”
Bieber’s message centered on people allowing God to love them “with no catch,” but beyond that message of love, the singer’s Instagram post dove deep into the real meaning of Jesus’ arrival on Earth.
“My Christmas wish is for whoever is reading this to stop and let God love you,” Bieber wrote. “Allow him to remind you of who you are this Christmas.”

The star went on to urge people to celebrate Jesus’ life — and His overarching mission.
“Today, we celebrate the birth of Jesus. We celebrate his life but let’s also celebrate his death, burial, and resurrection,” Bieber said. “He not only lived a sacrificial life but died a sacrificial death, then he rose from the dead, defeating death once and for all so that you and I can truly live for eternity.”
As Faithwire has extensively reported, Bieber is no stranger to biblical proclamations. He has also produced Christian-themed music and continues to do so.
He often takes to social media — and makes it a point in interviews — to illustrate and discuss his faith in Christ.
“He is grace. Every time we mess up, He’s picking us back up every single time. That’s how I view it,” Bieber said in a GQ interview earlier this year. “And so it’s like, ‘I made a mistake. I won’t dwell in it. I don’t sit in shame. But it actually makes me want to do better.'”
In one of his the singer’s more publicized faith moments, he and wife Hailey Bieber made headlines for their 2020 baptism.
“The moment [Hailey Bieber], my wife, and I got baptized together,” Bieber said on Instagram at the time, sharing photos of the touching moment. “This was one of the most special moments of my life. Confessing our love and trust in Jesus publicly with our friends and family.”
