‘My Job Is to Spread God’s Love’: Hollywood Star Reveals His Journey Into The Love Of Christ

Actor Carlos PenaVega (“Big Time Rush”) told CBN that his job is to “spread God’s love,” detailing his journey to rock bottom and back up in His light.

“It wasn’t until I really hit rock bottom … I was smoking a lot of weed,” PenaVega told the outlet in a candid interview. “I was drinking and I was sleeping around.” The lifestyle eventually left the actor “really depressed” by his own cycle of self-abuse.

“I locked myself in my house and I was ordering food and I was just miserable,” he continued.

“And I knew that there was something more for me.”

So he called a friend named Andrew. Andrew had just sold PenaVega his first house, and the actor couldn’t understand why Andrew was always so happy. “He was like, ‘Oh, man, I got Jesus,'” Andrew told him.

Not totally convinced, PenaVega decided to go with Andrew to his local church a few days later. “The bishop comes up, and he preaches his sermon, and he’s like, ‘Let me tell you a little story about a guy, myself, who was 23,’ and … he’s like, ‘Man, I was smoking drugs. And I was like, ‘Oh, OK. I’m smoking drugs, too.’ He’s like, ‘I was sleeping around.’ I was like, ‘Me too,'” PenaVega described.

After the sermon was over, PenaVega described the sensation of being “on this Jesus high.” He went home and called every single person he had wronged in his life to apologize.

The rest of the story is just as inspiring. You can watch the full interview here:
