Relevant Magazine reports that Bieber took the stage at a Churchome event at Coachella. One of Churchome’s leaders is Pastor Judah Smith, a friend and mentor of Bieber’s.

One of the songs Bieber sang was “Reckless Love” by Cory Asbury. Bieber previously had posted a video to Instagram of himself passionately singing this song while he’s sitting in a vehicle.

“God’s love is reckless, and he loves you mad tons,” he wrote in the caption.

The chorus to the song says:

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights ‘til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it, I don’t deserve it, still You give Yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
