PODCAST: BREAKING TRADITION; Living Counter Culture

Romans 12: 2 (The Message Translation)

Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.

………….

The bible verse above, is God’s blueprint of how we should live as his ambassadors in this culture. As Christians, we are called to demonstrate the culture of the word and not embrace the attitudes and mind-sets of the world around us. Listen to this podcast and let it bless you! Don’t forget to share it with others!

13 Years And Going Stronger! – Pastor Yemi & Bimbo Davids

Happy 13th wedding anniversary to Pastor Yemi and Bimbo Davids. I don’t attend Global Impact Church but i have heard him preach a number of times and i must say that, i was impacted and i have never been the same. I haven’t had a conversation with him yet but you know the strength and influence of a leader by the quality of the followers he produces.

I have friends who are leaders and members at Global Impact, among them ID Cabasa and Sijuade,  IK Worships, Bidemi Akinade, Opeyemi Beckley and my daughter, Jessica. My interraction with these people and their strength of character and examplary life is a testimony to Pastor Yemi Davids’ teaching.

Christianity In The Face Of Fuel Crisis

It’s an understatement to say Nigeria is in the thores of one of the fiercest energy crisis she would ever face. And needless to say Christians and non christians alike are affected. Its natural to feel anger and fraustration at the way our government is handling the situation and be tempted to vent out our feelings.

we definitely can’t bury our heads in the sand and act like we are insulated from what is going on. I mean, i don’t know about you but i don’t have electricity and i have no fuel to power my generator and the cost of cooking gas has doubled. so yeah. we are all in this together.

But how do we stay in faith, maintain positive confessions and maintain our intergrity? Christians are being tempted to sell at hiked prices a.ka (Black Market) to make quick money.  For some of us, it’s the despondency, the anger and the need to lash out and speak negatively.

Let’s Take A “Hate Test.”

  1. If you hate someone, you cannot shake the memory.Does the scene play out in your mind over and over?
  2. If you hate someone, you cannot wish him or her well.Do you genuinely wish the best for a person who has hurt you?
  3. If you hate someone, you want that person to hurt just as you hurt.Do you secretly desire this individual to experience the same pain that was thrust upon you?

Yes. I Do Have Depressive Episodes…

This is one of those times I have to be brutally open on this blog because not only does it help me, it can help someone else too. And most importantly, I know that God gave me this blog to connect with his children and encourage and inspire through sharing my own journey. This past week has been a struggle. For those who don’t know, I do struggle with a mood disorder that border on depression. So I had a relapse. I was out of sync with everything. I could barely function at my job, (when you talk for a living, you can imagine how hard that can be) I was miserable for no apparent reason and all i wanted to do was curl up and avoid anything human.

Did I pray? Barely. Did I read my bible and speak in tongues and do all those nice Christian things I know to do? Nope. I didn’t go to church because I didn’t wanna see or talk to people.

PODCAST: No Least, No Last Borns…

Most of us see ourselves as the regular average Joe. Especially if we do not belog to society’s accepted “class”.  We need to know that God does not see us that way. If you’re in Christ, the life of God in you has put the extra in your ordinary! You’re the child of the most high God.

Why Does It Have To Be Movies & Popcorn Every Time?

 

 

I haven’t gone on dates in a very long while. And not just because I have been busy and I actually haven’t been particularly motivated to, but because the idea of doing the same things people who live in Lagos do on dates, give me the hibbie jibbies.

We have become rather stereotyped and predictable. And unfortunately, that’s boring. Most single people go on dates with an expectation. Movies, wine, dine, conversation (or not) and the beginning of a romance that leads to the ever illusive happily ever after.

Whatever happened to enjoying each other’s company without undue expectations? Rich, deep, interesting, fun and at the same time intellectual conversation that does not end up in some kind of romantic tension?
