Award-winning rapper Lecrae has shared a snippet from his new book “Unashamed” on his Facebook page, revealing that he actually stole a Bible from his church just days after he became a Christian.
“I had finally been set free, but I was about to find out if I could live free. A person can be removed from slavery in an instant, but it takes a lifetime for slavery to be removed from a person,” he writes.
Lecrae admits he was on a spiritual “high” when he stole the Bible, which was placed in the church’s “lost and found” box. “Someone else had lost it, but I found it before they did,” he says.
At 19 years old, Lecrae remembers feeling extremely satisfied after reading the Bible because he finally discovered what he had been searching for his whole life—God. “The meaning and purpose I’d wanted was there now, and the worry that used to consume me was gone,” he says.
“Joy replaced anxiety, and I found a new energy for learning and growing. I had found the truth about life and God and myself.”
