• Hi Guest!

    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.

Be Totally Committed

‘I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ.’ Philippians 3:8 NKJV

Ever hear of ‘one-way missionaries’? They purchased a one-way ticket to the mission field, and instead of packing a suitcase they packed their belongings into a coffin, knowing they would never return home. A.W. Milne was one of them. He went to the New Hebrides in the South Pacific, knowing that head-hunters had martyred every missionary before him. But he didn’t fear for his life because he had already died to himself. For thirty-five years he lived among them and ministered to them. When he died, the tribe buried him in the middle of their village and inscribed these words on his tombstone: When he came there was no light. When he left, there was no darkness.

Nowhere in Scripture does God send us to safe places to do easy things. Faced with the cross, Jesus prayed the ultimate prayer of commitment: ‘Not My will, but Thine, be done.’ (Luke 22:42 KJV) And today He’s asking you to be totally committed to Him. Paul wrote: ‘What things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ… that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings.’ (Philippians 3:7–10 NKJV) It’s when you’re willing to fellowship with Christ in His sufferings that you get to experience the power of His resurrection.

So the word for you today is: be totally committed.
