When asked about marriage in a recent interview, Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber said “love isn’t always easy” adding he was trying to be more patient and selfless like Jesus Christ.

Bieber and his wife, model Hailey Baldwin recently celebrated their first Thanksgiving as a married could.

“First thanksgiving as a married man, first time hosting thanksgiving,” Bieber wrote in a post to his 102 million Instagram followers.

“Relationships are hard and love isn’t always easy but thank you Jesus for showing me how! Every day is a learning process, trying to be more like Him, patient, kind, selfless boy I got a long way! But God’s grace is sufficient!” he added.

Bieber and Baldwin both go to Hillsong Church, an evangelical church founded in Australia in 1983. The church now has branches worldwide in addition to a large youth following.

Bieber openly talks about his faith and his relationship with Jesus Christ, particularly online. He has used his social media as a platform to share his own faith message and encourage others to follow Jesus.

When the Christian devotional Jesus Calling was released, he encouraged his fans to start reading the book. He took to Instagram and shared a quote from the book that included two Bible verses from Psalms and 1 Corinthians, in which Christians are advised to trust in the Lord.

Bieber regularly attends church, now with his wife. When he was getting in trouble with the law, he was reportedly seen attending church more and more. When he’s been at some of his lowest points, God has grounded him.
