Fame and Faith: Top 25 Jesus Quotes: #18

Born in India in 1940, Harry Webb became a British rock star at the age of 18, recording what John Lennon called "the first British rock record."

With the stage name of Cliff Richard, Webb went on to become the United Kingdom's third-best-selling musical artist in history, behind the Beatles and Elvis.

From Wikipedia: "Over a career spanning 60 years, more than 130 of his singles, albums, and EPs have reached the UK Top 20, more than any other artist. Richard holds the record (with Elvis) as the only act to make the UK singles charts in all of its first six decades (1950s–2000s). He has achieved 14 UK number-one singles, and is the only singer to have had a number-one single in the UK in five consecutive decades."

Somewhere along the way, his popularity and success took second place to his relationship with the living God through Jesus Christ, even though the one never seems to have held back the other, as witnessed to by today's Jesus quote.

What other people think of me is becoming less and less important; what they think of Jesus because of me is critical.

Truth is...Fame and faith do not have to be enemies, as long as a person knows which one to grasp firmly.
