It would appear that the usually controversial comedian Russell Brand, whom some people would say is best known for his wild behaviour, has found Jesus Christ. Yes, in a recent interview with Relevant Magazine he said he’s discovered that Jesus Christ is the answer for the world today.
“My personal feeling is the teachings of Christ are more relevant now than they’ve ever been,”
The once professed heroin addict said; “My route to spirituality comes through addiction, so it comes from desperation and fear and this sort of defeat, destruction, annihilation of self in a very humiliating way, I suppose,” he explained. “I had no choice but to embrace spiritual life, but now I am grateful for this. It makes sense of my life.”
Following his divorce from pop-star Katy Perry after only being married for 14 months, Brand began the process of changing his life around. He then got married to actress Laura Gallacher in 2017 after the couple had their first child, Mabel, in November 2016
Brand said the phrase “Thy kingdom come … on Earth as it is in Heaven” in The Lord’s Prayer is pivotal in changing the world for better. His amplified his reasons as being that focusing on self-fulfilment is aimless, but the Gospel’s message of caring for others is what really brings satisfaction to the internal longing everyone has.
Well we pray for him and are pleased to hear this great news.
