Actor Denzel Washington is on a mission to spread the gospel, revealing in a recent interview that he believes the Lord has been delivering a special message to him.
"In every prayer, all I hear is: 'Feed my sheep,'" Washington recently said at "The Better Man Event" at First Baptist Orlando in Florida. "That's what God wants me to do."
The actor, who encouraged the audience to "listen to God," said he's sometimes not sure what God means with this message, but that he has taken steps to live it out, according to The Christian Post.
Washington also explained that, like everyone, he has struggled with his faith in the past.
"What I played in the movies is not who I am, it's what I played. I'm not going to sit or stand on any pedestal and tell you about what I had in mind for you or your soul," he said. "Because the fact of the matter is, in the whole 40-year process, I was struggling for my own soul."
Washington said fame is "a monster" and that money and attention won't solve the cravings of the soul.
"It's cliché [but] money, don't make it better. It doesn't," he added. "Fame just magnifies the problems and the opportunities."
