    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

    Please share Talk Jesus community on every platform you have to give conservatives an outleet and safe community to be apart of.

Do you love your neighbors?

Do you love complete strangers around you and how much do you love them? How do you show it?

( I am not asking this with a pointed finger, I am wanting ideas because I do love everyone but do not know what to do to show it - I have tried to ' Talk Jesus' with them but at the mention of His name they get up and walk away.)

The more you get involved with people, the less they are "complete strangers".

We "love them" at different levels. We have free meals we give out from time to time to the homeless.
Before Covid, we visited people in hospitals, nursing homes, and prisons.

The 10 commandments are basically about loving people.
Don't kill them, steal from them, lie about them, or cheat with their spouses.

Rom 13:8; Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for the one who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the Law.
Rom 13:9; For this, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this saying, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Rom 13:10; Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the Law.

We have some homeless shelters also, but the state is making it difficult for that as well. They have to inspected, and manned for licensed people, etc...

Matt 25:34; “Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
Matt 25:35; For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in;
Matt 25:36; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’
Matt 25:37; Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink?
Matt 25:38; And when did we see You as a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You?
Matt 25:39; And when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’
Matt 25:40; And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it for one of the least of these brothers or sisters of Mine, you did it for Me.’


James 2:15; If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food,
James 2:16; and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?

James 1:27; Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.

I am with a ministry on the streets 2 nights a week helping the homeless, we are there for immediate needs but more importantly we are there for spiritual needs, we pray for them and take them to detox, and just talk and listen to them build relationships and trust. Its been a blessing on my life in so many ways.

When you get a bunch of true born again believer together to serve it like nothing I have experienced before in my life. I Just got home from serving and my spirit is so filed from being able to serve and having a family of born again brothers and sisters of all ages and races is truly incredible.

Luke 14:12-14
He said also to the man who had invited him, “When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return and you be repaid. But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.”

the thing I really like about my ministry is we telll everyone we are there because Jesus tells us to be, not because we are good people, not because we want a pat on our back, we are there because Jesus changed our hearts and we are hoping that they will want to receive Jesus also. We make it very clear what we do, is in Jesus name.
