Kanye West took his Sunday Service to the largest church in America….Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston, where he performed and spoke with Osteen about the calling that’s on his life…
“I know that God’s been calling me for a long time and the devil has been distracting me for a long time. When I was at my lowest points, God was there with me. Inspiring me and sending me visions,” West said.
He was hospitalized in 2016 after suffering from a breakdown, but remembers drawing a picture of a church while he was recovering.
“The devil will come and do everything he can to distract people from showing service to the Lord. The arrogance you saw me use before is being used for God now, he said.”
“Every time I stand up, I am drawing a line in the sand and saying I’m here in service for God.”
He spoke about his latest album and the song ”God Is,” (my favorite off the history making album) which addresses the addictions and demons among everyone.
“Those addictions are on us even when you are saved and fully delivered. We are all human and fall short of the glory. Christians are not going to be Christ – we are going to follow Christ and be Christ-like and repent for our sins. It’s that constant repentance. People who don’t accept the Bible don’t want to accept that they’re wrong,” he said.
As a child, Kanye attended church with his parents.
“My dad had me in church three times a week. My mom had me in church two times a week. Now that I have a family, there is a responsibility for me to be like my mom and dad.”
