Rihanna has decided to share the gospel with the world through her Twitter header image.

Rihanna, the 26-year-old Barbadian singer, made sure to make the header of her Twitter a verse from the Bible. The singer seemed to take a screenshot straight from the Bible with a story about Jesus healing blind men.

"When he entered the house, the blind men came to him, and Jesus said to them, 'do you believe that I am able to do this?' They said to him, 'Yes, Lord,'" Rihanna's header from Mark 9:28 reads.

Although the singer has raised eyebrows and sparked conversation with her public nudity and controversial behavior, she has not shied away from sharing her Christian faith in the past. The singer previously appeared in Glamour U.K. and spoke about how making God her priority has helped her regain her fearless attitude after being questioned about how she stopped fearing fame.

"Remembering what's important in life and understanding that we are individuals with our own relationship to God," Rihanna told the magazine. "When that's clear, it's difficult to be bothered by what people think."

Rihanna has also given fans a glimpse of her spiritual beliefs by previously sharing biblical scriptures with an affinity for Christian author and speaker Joyce Meyer's teachings.

"Believing has a lot to do with obedience," the singer re-tweeted from Meyer two years ago. "If you really believe what God says, you'll do what He says."

The singer is an admitted fan of Meyer's, and even sent a message to the Christian speaker on Twitter last year.

"@JoyceMeyer you're awesome," Rihanna told the minister via Twitter.

Despite what her critics may think, she previously insisted that she lives her life for God.

"I'm gonna look back on my life and say that I enjoyed it- and I lived it for me- and God," she previously told Esquire magazine.
