    New Community Design

    Thinking about doing a refresh design for Talk Jesus community here, possibly using a different software platform as well to replace the current. It'll still remain a "forum" software nonetheless. Please vote at this poll and share your feedback.

    Facing Our Loneliness

    Everyone has lonely moments in life, but when loneliness begins to define our lives, it causes serious problems. We compromise our principles to try to fill the emotional emptiness. We choose behavior that harms our health, relationships, and finances. The consequences can be devastating. Learn how God desires to fulfill every longing you have for meaningful connection.

  1. A Spiritual Check-up (1)

    '...The Lord searches every heart and understands every motive...' 1 Chronicles 28:9 NIV

    The Psalmist prayed, 'Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.' (Psalm 139:23-24 NKJV) If you're wise you'll visit your doctor and get regular physical checkups. You'll also go to God for regular spiritual checkups. In what areas?

    (1) Your salvation. 'If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.' (2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV) Was there ever a time in your life when you repented of your sin and placed your trust in Jesus to save you? Have you surrendered to Him and made Him Lord of your life?

    (2) Your devotional life. 'I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day.' (Psalm 119:97 NKJV) 'Your Word is very pure; therefore Your servant loves it.' (Psalm 119:140 NKJV) Do you read and meditate on God's Word each day? Are your personal devotions consistent and meaningful? Do you try to apply the principles of Scripture to each circumstance you're in?

    (3) Your humility. God says: '...I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.' (Isaiah 57:15 NKJV)

    Are you quick to recognise and agree with God when you have sinned? Are you quick to admit to others when you are wrong? Can you rejoice at others' successes, even when yours goes unnoticed? Do you esteem others as better than yourself? (Romans 12:10) Do you live with a sense of dependence upon God?
