Hey everybody! During this time of the holiday season many of us are relatively new at Talk Jesus and we all are experiencing an exciting time of growth in God's church. Talk Jesus is CHURCH! Praise His wonderful name! When you and I are here or out there with our families, church, work, school, and the world, please remember that we need to continue to be that light unto others. There are many out there who still don't know who Jesus is and carry that loneliness, anger, depression, despair, and take it all upon themselves. Some may bring it into this site. We need to be servants to them first; :boy_hug: :girl_hug: Matthew 5:14-16 Jesus also says, "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." When I come here there are times when I have mud all over my shirt. But there are so many of you that are a light and that is what Jesus reveals to me and I get blessed by your encouragement, the Word, sense of humor, tough love at times when I need it, good discussions, and readings from your threads and posts, and..your forgiveness unto others. I get a shot in the arm here and take that with me back out there. I desire to help make a difference in one more life as God then does what He will. Then that person can become a light and witness to the next one, and so on, its is a lifelong process. Lets walk in His light together, amen? I love God so much and I love you all! Be safe out there and focus on Jesus! Your brother in Christ Jesus!
