Kanye West has had an extreme makeover of his spirit-man the past two years. The famed rapper has rediscovered his love for Jesus that he had when he was still a young man.
The course correction that his life has taken came after a series of erratic behaviours ended up with him being hospitalised back in 2016 after a nervous break-down.
But it seems things are looking up for the rapper after he got saved. And how did that happen? During a recent church service at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Atlanta in Atlanta, the business mogul shared his testimony of finding Jesus, being saved and holding fast to Christ’s greatness.
As reported by BET, “Along with his typical praise and worship sessions, Kanye offered a special sermon [at the service], speaking on the importance of accepting both God’s power along with His plan for you.”
Pastor Dr. Sunday Adelaja shared a video on YouTube sharing how God has worked miracles in his and others’ lives. Despite being tempted personally by every “shiny” thing the devil could possibly have shown him, West found the truth.
Ye revealed through a worshipful moment anchored in the sentiments of Ecclesiastes that he discovered that “Nothing beats God” and that only God can give you a sound mind.
Kanye encouraged congregants to have a singular focus on God, and not man: “Let’s not be concerned with the opinions of men at all. Only the opinion of God. Let’s not be concerned with the validation of men at all. Only of God. To be radically in service to Christ.”
The man then confessed how Christ had delivered him, saved him and brought him closer to his children and family after years of deception “chasing a gold statue.”
“I believe Jesus died for my sins,” West declared, “There was a time when the devil had me.” He added, “Do you know the good news? Jesus can save a wretch like me,” he said.
“The power of God cannot be calculated by…a bank account, by how many cars you drive or by how big your house is…it’s God inside of us…,” Ye proclaimed.
