    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 outlet and safe community to be apart of.

Ransomed, Redeemed, Restored!

'He provided redemption for His people.' Psalm 111:9 NIV

Ever been to a pawnshop? The idea is simple; if you need money, you take a valuable item like jewellery or a musical instrument to the shop where the pawnbroker appraises it and gives you cash. But if you don't return within the specified time to redeem the item, you forfeit ownership.

Although it was yours originally, you no longer have legal possession till you buy it back. And if you wait too long, it can be lost forever. Have you ever thought of yourself as somebody who needs to be redeemed, so you can be returned to your rightful owner? God created us to enjoy fellowship with Him. But sin caused us to fall into 'the snare of the devil...held captive...to do his will.' (2 Timothy 2:26 NAS)

Restoration to God, your rightful owner, could only come through redemption. And that's exactly what God did! 'God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.' (John 3:16 NKJV) Christ's death was the price of your redemption; that's how much God values you!

But redemption only becomes a reality when you realise you're a sinner, and trust Christ as your Saviour. The moment you do, He reunites you with God - ransomed, redeemed, restored to your original owner. So the question is: have you taken up His offer of salvation, the one that makes you a member of His family? If you're able to read this, it's not too late. You can do it right now wherever you are.
