Is Suicide Really the Answer? (Part 2)
As we continue to discuss suicide, know that the devil is seeking for vulnerable minds, minds that are not stayed on the Word of God. According to statistics, on average one person dies by suicide every 40 seconds somewhere in the world, while up to 20 others are attempting the same act. That is an extraordinary number of people choosing death. The word of God tells us in Deuteronomy 30:19 “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.”
My friend, Jesus has a plan for your life, if you are having thoughts of suicide, please speak to someone about it; speak to your pastor or youth leader if you are a youth, a school counselor, etc. The truth is that once the act of suicide is committed there is no more chance of salvation. Jesus is who gives life and He is the only one that can take it away. He loves you and wants you to have a purposeful/meaningful life. Just imagine taking your own life just to wake up for judgement and suffer a worst punishment than what was experience here on earth; and the worst part is that it would be an everlasting punishment. The devil will speak into your mind and tell you to take your life so that you can be at peace but he would never tell you that it would only get worst after death.
If you know someone who has been mentioning suicide, please do not take it lightly. Encourage them to seek help and most importantly pray for them.
