Justin Bieber shared several faith-inspired posts leading up to his People’s Choice Awards performance of his single “Holy” and revealed he wishes to lead people to God.

“All my life I felt in my heart I was supposed to entertain. I had been given these abilities that I wanted to showcase. My heart as I get older is to ask God to refine my heart. To make sure my intention remains pure,” Bieber wrote Sunday on Instagram along with a video of rehearsal footage of him singing “Holy.” 

“My intention is to inspire, uplift, empower and lead people to know and see the love of God,” he continued. “To remind people of the joy and wonder that is all around us.”report this ad

Later that evening, Bieber performed “Lonely” and “Holy” at the People’s Choice Awards. While singing his love song, “Holy,” which is filled with Christian references, Bieber had several illuminated crosses across the stage.

In his Instagram post, the Canadian native went on to say, “Fear of rejection can scare us away from our full potential. But asking God to use us even when we’re scared takes the pressure off of us and reminds us that He is in control.”
