Chris Pratt has had no shortage of public moments during which he has openly shared his Christian faith, with the actor telling young people and adults, alike, that God loves them, wants the best for them — and that he personally seeks a relationship with the Almighty.
And that’s not all. The A-lister also believes his faith helps sustain him in an industry that often has a slew of pitfalls for megastars like him. So, we decided to pull together five of Pratt’s most powerful and inspirational faith quotes.
Listen to us explain these excellent quotes at the 26:30-mark:
Chris Pratt’s Powerful Message About Handling Fame
Pratt recently responded to “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert when Colbert asked if intense fame ever has the actor feeling as though he’s living in a metaphorical lion’s den. Here was his response:
“If the spotlight that’s shining on you is brighter than the light that comes from within you — it’ll kill you. And you see it all the time. People in our position, people that are actors, you see a lot. It’s this real bright spotlight.”
Actor Chris Pratt Tells MTV Fans That God Loves Them
Speaking last year at the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards, Pratt took to the stage to tell the audience that God loves them and wants the best for them. Here was his powerful message:
“God is real. God loves you, God wants the best for you. Believe that. I do.”
The Actor’s Message About Perfection Went Viral
In a world that encourages selfies and “all-about-me” attitudes, Pratt also reminded the MTV audience that no one is perfect — and that God designed each and every person. The actor also said that “grace is a gift.”
“Nobody is perfect. People will tell you that you are perfect just the way that you are, you’re not! You’re imperfect. You always will be, but there is a powerful force that designed you that way, and if you are willing to accept that, you will have grace. And grace is a gift. Like the freedom that we enjoy in this country, that grace was paid for with somebody else’s blood. Do not forget it. Don’t take it for granted.
