Candace Cameron Bure Posts Inspiring Video of Young Girl: ‘Jesus Was Not Crucified on a Gucci Cross’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Candace Cameron Bure recently shared a video of a young girl’s speech to her church congregation, reminding them of the true importance of faith. 

The video shows Cherry Paul Ede addressing Coric Children’s church. In her speech, she quotes a poem by Fragile Dogubo called “Gucci Cross.”

“I don’t know who needs to hear this, but Jesus was not crucified on a Gucci cross,” Ede told the audience. “He didn’t have on a crown of Versace thorns or Nike shoes on his feet when the nails pierced through. There was nothing bougie about Calvary. That old raggedy wooden cross wasn’t even befitting to hold the carpenter’s son, but there our God hung, held on by His love for us, by His love for all.”

She continued, “It wasn’t the red carpet affair for your favorite celebs. Matter of fact, the only paparazzi was an angry mob as a crowd of witnesses. Once upon a time, I thought the crucifixion was like the Grammys, an award show only for a self-righteous view. But the Bible didn’t mention an ovation – only wrongful accusation, hate speech and boos from fools. The King of Glory came through.

“It was for you that He embraced the pain,” she said. “So when the serpent comes to the ring – hissing, whispering deceitful accusations speaking in passive tongues. This is clapback season declared, fully my sins are forgiven. I do not know who needs to hear this, but Jesus was not crucified on the Gucci cross. It doesn’t matter your age, gender, race or net worth – only that you have been made holy.”

Bure posted the video, which has blown up on TikTok, with the caption “Glory to God.”

The actress spends a lot of time on social media, and often uses the platform to share her faith.

Actress Candace Cameron Bure shared another one of her favorite scriptures on Instagram recently with a funny TikTok clip. 

In this video, Bure is reading her Bible with the words “When people ask ‘How often should you read your Bible?’” She then mouths along to the audio clip that says, “Every day. Not all day, every day, but every day.”

Her caption reads:

Hebrews 4:12– “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”

We read the Word of God everyday because it is a sign of obedience to Him, while it also fills us with His Spirit. His goodness, His mercy, His love, etc.
