Justin Bieber’s ongoing religious retreat in New Jersey seems to have inspired reflective social media posts from the singer.
On Monday, the 20-year-old shared a biblical quote with a selfie showing him writing in a journal.
Justin captioned his Instagram post, “The old is gone the new is here’ #workinprogress.”
The line is taken from 2 Corinthians 5:17 in the bible: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come — The old has gone, the new is here.”
Daily Mail Online reports a bible reference site explains that the “old” indicates attitudes of the personality which are replaced with “new things, full of life and the glory of God.”
“The newborn soul delights in the things of God and abhors the things of the world and the flesh.”
