Are you Bold?

Are you bold enough to speak publicly about Christ?
If a stranger asked you to pray with them in the streets would you pray with them?
Are you okay with street evangelism?
How do you feel Christians should spread the word?

Whilst listening to Sinach, Youtube suggested a singer called Ada Ehi. I listened to a few of her songs and liked what I was hearing. Upon enquiring about her from members of the church Praise and Worship team I learned that one of her songs has been sung at church before.

Ada Ehi is a gospel singer from Nigeria. She studied Chemical Engineering at University before she decided to commit to a gospel music career. Her videos on Youtube have millions of views. She delivers the gospel message so eloquently with a selection of ballads and uptempo tracks. Her music videos have amazing cinematography. The visuals are amazing especially in the video for I Overcame. Ada is definitely a gospel artist worth listening to and one to watch.

Pepita Little Tells Her Story

3 June 2017

Pepita Little is a Jamaican TV personality who began her career at 16 years old.  She appeared on Religious Hardtalk recently and discussed her journey her faith her weaknesses. As a Christian, she discovered that she was still plagued with the same struggles as before such as smoking weed, being sexually active outside of marriage with a notable fellow Christian in the church and so much more.

When she sought help, she was given scriptures. The scriptures were nice to hear but as she lacked understanding of the scriptures she was none the wiser and still suffering. Pepita laments that when people talk about their deliverance or overcoming sometimes they need to also discuss the process involved and not just the end result. Once someone is "Saved", there needs to be ongoing maintenance to help them along their Christian walk.

Snoop Dogg recently shared in a radio interview that he plans to release a Gospel music album. That is right. Snoop Dogg, the infamous Gangster rapper, whose dabbled in Reggae (Rasta Snoop) is now turning to Gospel music.

In his interview, he explains that he has been in conversations with singer Faith Evans about this project. He declares it has been in his heart to do gospel album for a long time. 

What will a Snoop Gospel album sound like and will HipHop fans buy the music? Will Snoop get a warm welcome from Christian and Gospel music faithful fans let alone church attendees? 

One thing is for sure. As he says it has been in his heart to do such a project, I can only imagine God is working on him internally. What do you think?

How Do You Start Your Day?

3 May 2017

I was told by an elder to start my day with the Lord. Yet over these last few months, I have been struggling with reading my Bible. I have various apps on my mobile phone, books, study aids and Bibles, Yet I am finding it harder and harder to set aside time that I require to spend time with the Lord.

I came across this image from Youversion one of my favourite Bible apps. I normally have an active reading plan in place. I am trying to focus but I am struggling. Even in my downtime I feel like my mind has to be occupied and that I need to use up as much time I have to try achieve goals. Yet I spend so much time thinking about it, it does not produce the fruits I want. I feel a part of this lull is because I feel I should have be grown spiritually a lot more by now. 

With all that being said. I aim to set aside more time to read my Bible, watch videos, and study the Word. I am into theological studies at the moment. Having travelled through historical church history I have a better understanding of many things such as why Christians celebrate on certain days and how agreements came to pass on the trinity and divinity of Christ. Also how multi-racial the Bible actually is. 

What do you do to get back your spiritual spark? How do you get back to that place of reading, seeking, learning and growing faithfully daily. How do you get into that routine of starting each day with the Lord? Do you have to be sat down? Will an audio book do? Let me know how you start your day with the Lord.
