The EP reportedly took supporters by surprise, The Christian Post reports. It was released on Easter Sunday and reportedly has a lot of Christian messages in it. His pastor, who is featured on two tracks, talked about the gospel and who Jesus is. One song is from the perspective of a skeptic who concludes that, since the historical documents are true, there truly is nobody like Jesus.
In one of the tracks, Bieber prays for his listeners. He also shares a message that God never writes us off, no matter what we've done or are still doing. "God never writes us off ever. He's with us in our pain. He's with us in a struggle. He's with us in our bad decisions. He's with us all the time. He never writes us off."
This EP comes on the heels of Bieber releasing his most recent album, Justice, on March 19, 2021.
