Candace Cameron Bure has long been known as one of the few openly conservative Christian stars in Hollywood. The actress has yet again solidified her stance this week, taking to social media to share a Christian video that has an incredibly powerful message behind it.

‘Gucci Cross’ Poem
On Monday, Cameron Bure shared a video to her near 5.6 million followers on Instagram, wherein a little girl from Africa recites a poem by Fragile Dogubo called “Gucci Cross.” The child has since been identified as Cherry Paul Ede of the Children Church of The City of Refuge International Church(CORIC), and she does an incredible job sharing the spoken word about Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection.
“I don’t know who needs to hear this, but Jesus was not crucified on a Gucci cross,” Cherry said. “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.”
“It wasn’t the red carpet affair for your favorite celebs,” she continued. “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 few. 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’
The poem only got more powerful from there, and it’s no wonder that it went viral on Cameron Bure’s page, garnering over one million views in just two days, according to CBN News.
“But boy! Did Jesus make a runway out of Golgotha. Adjusted that burden of the cross, you would think it was Agbada over his shoulders. I heard it is stated that when Jesus said ‘it is finished,’ that was a fashion statement,” Cherry added. “Even in suffering, the sovereignty of His majesty cannot be hid.”
“But make no mistakes. Jesus felt every nail, felt every whiplash, every rib crack. It was for you that He embraced the pain,” she expressed. “But His story doesn’t end there. He showed up on the third day like ‘I’m good and you are too. One with the Father, My blood makes you brand new.’ So what other proof do you need that God loves you?”
Cherry ended the poem by telling those listening that they should live a life knowing that they are forgiven.
“This is clap-back season declared, fully my sins are forgiven,” she concluded. “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.”

‘Glory To God’
The poem clearly spoke to Cameron Bure, who posted the video with the simple yet powerful caption, “Glory to God.” This is far from the first time that Cameron Bure has used her massive platform to spread a Christian message. Back in May, she opened up about the spiritual warfare that is discussed in the Bible by revealing her family had been targeted by an evil entity.
“(W)e forget that there’s a very real and powerful enemy at work every single day of our lives. That enemy is the devil,” she said at the time. “He’s real, and he’s at work, but the devil has no control or authority in my home.”
“Jesus has all authority, all power in my home, and He reigns in my home,” Cameron Bure continued. “And so, I call upon the Holy Spirit, I pray out any evil spirits that are in here. And I put on my worship music. It’s just filling my home. So my home is filled with Scripture and God’s Word, God’s power, God’s truth. And I just keep reminding myself of that.”
