Russel Brand Opens Up About 1st Month With Christ

May 31, 2024

Russell Brand told his followers that his first month since being baptized in the River Thames was “beautiful.”

“I’ve been a Christian a month now, and it’s been a big change,” the 48-year-old celebrity told followers. “Not that I’ve entirely changed as a person. Of course, I haven’t, but I’ve taken on a lot of new concepts, and it changes you to accept that it’s not like you’re in a game show, and by doing really, really good things, you can get redeemed.” (LEARN MORE: Actor Dennis Quaid Credits God For Helping Him Through Addiction)

Brand’s journey has been focused on the core themes of repentance and acknowledging internal struggles. “Repentance, to repent, means that you have to continually change and acknowledge that ‘I am in a battle against myself,’ that I need to surrender myself to an ever-present, internal, and accessible Jesus, that mercy is something that’s given to me, been granted to me, that I live with through love, not something that I can sort of win or achieve by doing good deeds,” he continued.

“When I’m in doubt, I feel that instruction is there, accessible. I feel like I know what I’m supposed to do, and when I don’t do what I’m supposed to do, that’s even clearer,” he added. “When I feel myself being selfish or inconsiderate or putting myself first or not thinking about how I can be better to other people, it’s as if there is an inner illumination available to me now.”

“I love the simplicity of the idea of God coming to Earth as a man to experience what it is to be human and to sacrifice Himself because that’s the only sacrifice that could bring us home, that could give us the opportunity for redemption,” Brand continued. “I like the idea, when I’m in prayer and in communion, just alone, that there is a figure available, wounded and coronated, available to me. In my failings and my failures and in my fallibility, there is strength.” (RELATED: Superstar Actor Speaks Of ‘Spiritual Awakening’)

Excitement In Him

“It’s a beautiful journey to go on,” Brand noted. “I know I’m just at the beginning. I know I’m just learning. I know there’s so much more to learn, and I’m so excited to learn more from you and for us to learn together.”
