Justin Bieber revealed that he is trying to be more like Jesus in an Instagram post which reflected on his relationship with new wife Hailey Baldwin..
The pop star, 24, admitted during a Thanksgiving-themed post that ‘love isn’t always easy’ but added he was trying, like Jesus Christ, to be more patient and selfless.
Justin, who married Hailey in a secret ceremony in September, told his 102 million-strong Instagram following that this year’s holiday was the first he had hosted.
He wrote: ‘First thanksgiving as a married man, first time hosting thanksgiving.’
‘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 gods grace is sufficient!’
Alongside the caption Justin shared a beautiful scenery photo of a leafy forest and a spattering of snow on the ground.
Justin and Hailey attend the evangelical Hillsong Church, which was founded in Australia in 1983 and now has branches worldwide with a big youth following.
The couple first unofficially confirmed their marriage in comments on social media last week when the ‘Sorry’ singer called Baldwin ‘my wife’ and the model changed her Instagram name to Hailey Bieber.
Thursday was also the 22nd birthday of Hailey Bieber, which s mother Patti Mallette marked with an Instagram Story showing her son singing ‘Happy Birthday’ and presenting his wife with a cake.
