Actor Stephen Baldwin takes part in a panel discussion of NBC Universal’s series “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” during the 2013 Winter Press Tour for the Television Critics Association in Pasadena, California January 6, 2013.

Actor Stephen Baldwin opened up about his life before coming to Christ, and how an unexpected witness planted the seed that ultimately helped him to believe, in a recent video posted for I Am Second, a movement that helps people discover their purpose in life by putting Christ first.

“My life before Christ was focused on making money,” said Baldwin. ” … A totally day-in-and-day-out existence that was, unbeknownst to me at the time, an existence of self-absorbance, and just doing what you normally do when you’re trying to maintain a career in the movie business.”

Over time, however, the priorities of the 49-year-old actor changed.

“Loving Jesus is what’s most important to me,” he said. “I know that sounds hokey, but it’s the truth. My life is God’s life in me for Him to do with what He wants.”

So what inspired the change of heart?

Baldwin shared that a housekeeper they once hired while living in Tucson, Arizona, frequently sang melodies about Jesus while working around the house. No matter the song, Jesus always seemed to be the focus. The actor said that one day his wife, Kennya, inquired of the housekeeper, “‘Why is every song about Jesus?'”

The woman laughed at the question, saying, “‘ … The reason that I’m laughing is you think the only reason that I’m here is to clean your house.'” She went on to prophecize that Baldwin and his wife would one day become born-again Christians and have their own ministry.
