Rapper Lecrae who is known for making music about being unashamed of his relationship with Jesus Christ took to social media over the weekend to lift up his fans who feel discouraged and are falling away from their faith.
The Reach Records founder posted of photo of himself and mainstream artist, Chance the Rapper on Saturday to grab people’s attention.
“I’ve have [sic] a lot of folks who rock with me. Some are Christians, some are not. Some are on a faith journey, some feel strongly about faith not being legitimate,” the Texas native wrote on Instagram. “I just want you to know I love you all. I’m glad you’re here. I have ZERO desire to condemn and 100% desire to show you love.”
In times past, Lecrae has been criticized by some in the faith community for mingling with secular rappers but his new post went on to explain why he does it.
“I didn’t grow up in church, I don’t know all the cultural rules and norms. I’m a lil unorthodox, I don’t call myself religious. Religion to me is following rules hoping to be right with God,” he said.
“I feel like I’ve been MADE right with God thru the sacrifice of Yeshua (Jesus), who lived the perfect life I could not and died the death I deserved. I also believe He supernaturally resurrected and lives outside of time and space, yet is present with me always,” Lecrae preached.
