NEWS: MIND MAKEOVER DAY 20 – ‘FOLLOW ME’ @IFYALEXIS

In today's Mind Makeover blog Ify speaks about what it actually means to bear our Cross in Christ, deny ourselves and really follow Jesus. The scripture Matthew 16:24-25  reminds Ify about the call upon her life;  'Then Jesus said to his disciples, "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.' Ify makes a valid point that Jesus doesn't force us to come after him or choose the way of salvation. He gives us free will. For those of us that make that decision to

NEWS: MIND MAKEOVER DAY 19 – ‘LIVING A LIE’ @DJKELECHI

Today's Mind Makeover video is presented by DJ Kelechi where he gives us an insight into his powerful testimony.  DJ Kelechi recalls when he first became a Christian and he integrated his faith into his life. However he admits to doing things that didn't really glorify God. As he went into a deeper relationship with God, the Lord began to talk to him about coming out of a life of darkness and walking into a life of light; living in the right way. Christianity is not just about singing and praising and attending church on Sundays; it's a lifestyle. We should come to a point where we hate sin and decide to live for God wholeheartedly. DJ Kelechi asks what things in our life should we cut out? Is there anything in our life that is stopping us from praying or drawing us closer to God? The more time spent in God's presence...

NEWS: MIND MAKEOVER DAY 18 – ‘GO TELL EM’ BY TINA AMADI

The bible says in 1 Peter 2:9 (NLT) But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, [a] a holy nation, God's very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. Tina explores our roles as Priests. As Christians we are to do the exact same thing that Jesus did which is to spread the good news of the gospel. We are to tell people that they can come out of darkness into light, tell them they can come out of sorrow and into joy, tell people they can come out of unhappiness and into happiness. This is the power of the gospel and its also how we should exercise our God given roles as priests. Today's message is full of hope and challenges us to spread...

NEWS: MIND MAKEOVER DAY 17 – ‘DON’T WASTE YOUR LIFE’ @REALJVESSEL

J Vessel breaks down how the pleasures of this world isolate us from the things of the Father. Chasing after the things of the world is a wasted life because these things will perish. It's easy to get caught up in the hype of status and possessions for validation but J Vessel emphasizes the importance of putting God first. 1 John 2:16-17 says  For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world. And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever. The scripture shows that chasing after God brings life and when we put him first, everything else shall follow. Today's challenge prompts us to live unselfishly and do something that pleases God. What can...

NEWS: MIND MAKEOVER DAY 15 – ‘JUST DO YOU’ @TRIPLEOMUSIC

Triple O talks about image being a dominant concern in today's society within media and even among our peers. The danger of this is that we can end up living for people, trying to please them. However Triple O says that if we are to live a life that does not conform to this world, we should only to 'look at' man but inevitably 'look up' to God.  Proverbs 21:29 (NIV) says The wicked put up a bold front, but the upright give thought to their ways. This encouraging message advises us to focus on living to glorify and please God. Today's Challenge is to disregard people's opinions. Don't let them govern your life. Decide to live by what the God says because at the end of the day it's only His opinion that counts.

NEWS: MIND MAKEOVER DAY 14 – ‘HOW TO BE A SUPERHERO’ TINA AMADI

Tina presents today's Mind Makeover Challenge which is based on Ephesians 4:24 'Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy'. Tina remembers when she was young she desired to be a super hero, wishing she could do amazing things, with strength and power. Although she couldn't be like the cartoons she would watch, she identified with the attributes of God and his super natural power, miracle works and healing abilities. Understanding God way's gave Tina the confidence to live in his likeness, by helping others and living out her super hero ambitions!  She also reflects on  Ezekiel 22:30  which says 'So I sought for a man who would... stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land.. but I found no one.' Today's Challenge is to pray for someone who is in their hour of need.

NEWS: MIND MAKEOVER DAY 12 – ‘LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE’ @FAITHCHILDMUSIC

Faith Child's video blog is based on Matthew 5:16 and he questions 'how can we let our light shine before men?' As Christian's no matter how dark things may be we can make a difference to the things and world around us. Whether at work, school, home, community or socially we can impact people and our environments in a good and positive way. Our light can be anything from our actions and even the things that we say and stand up for. The challenge today is to go out and do an act of kindness so that God may be glorified. Sometimes we are the only bible people read. Our lifestyles can encourage, inspire and bring people...

NEWS: MIND MAKEOVER CHALLENGE DAY TEN – ‘BE STRONG’ GREATER FAITH

In Today's Mind Makeover video blog 13-year-old Greater- Faith talks about finding strength in the Lord after being bullied. Even if people hurt you or your feelings she explains it's the power of the word that can help us to overcome such challenges.

Being strong in the Lord is depending on him for all our needs. So lets trust that word has us covered and keep close in prayer for direction.

NEWS: MIND MAKEOVER CHALLENGE DAY SEVEN – ‘GIFTS’ @CHALEBOYTHEPOET

ChaleBoyThePoet draws on his experience as a poet to illustrate the need to use our gifts to honour God. In this video blog ChaleBoyThePoet admits his content didn't have much substance when he started out in poetry. It was when he gave his life to Christ that he found purpose and meaning in his poems. We all have gifts and they may not be the obvious talents like singing or performing, it could be organising things or even being a great motivator. Whatever it is ChaleBoyThePoet says that we must use what we have to life up his name. The challenge for today is start using your talents and if you don't know what is then pray about it and let God reveal it to you. Psalm 150:6 says  Let everything that has breath Praise the Lord. Our abilities should do this too.

NEWS: MINDMAKEOVER CHALLENGE DAY FIVE – ‘SERVICE’ @CHRISTIANBFC1

Christian from the ForeRunnaz touches on the service aspect of being a Christian. Being conformed to the image of Christ requires real understanding of what Jesus was actually like.  He advises us that it is our responsibility to read the bible and understand him in the  Gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. For example what things made Jesus angry and would please him? Once we identify this we'll have a clearer understanding of how we can conform and actively live this life. Jesus was for the people and its through serving his people that we represent Christ and his Kingdom. What ways can we reach out to people and help our communities, poor and disadvantaged? Conforming is not just what we do in public but what we do for God and people behind the scenes.

NEWS: MINDMAKEOVER CHALLENGE DAY FOUR – A LIFE THAT BRINGS HIM GLORY @GRLINMEDIA

Today's Mind Makeover challenge comes from yours truly. In this video I talk about how God personally transformed my life the closer I got to him and in fact he is still working on me. There are things that are 'normal' in this world but ultimately the Kingdom of God has different and much higher standards. The challenge for today is  to  commit anything you feel in your life that is keeping you away from God pray about it. Spend time, get to know him for yourself and make effort in studying the word and he will definitely  deliver you from whatever is holding you back from glorifying him!

NEWS: MINDMAKEOVER CHALLENGE DAY THREE – WORD UP! @TRIPLEOMUSIC

Ever felt like reading your bible is a bit of a chore?

Here Triple O relates to that and encourages us to make time for the bible and write down verses.  Triple O highlights the importance of  getting to know God for ourselves. So the question is how much time are we putting aside to know God on a personal level? It's never to late. We can start today.
