Poetry: Please don’t do it (Jesus loves you)
Hey there how you doing?
Can I talk to you for a second?
This can be on or off the record.
I can sense and tell that you are suffering.
By the look in your eyes I can see you are not bluffing.
I may not know or understand fully with what you’re going through,
But I can tell you are hurting.
I hope you don’t do what I think you may do.
Please don’t commit suicide.
I may not know exactly what you are going through.
I know someone who does.
Jesus Christ is His name.
He went through many sufferings while here on earth.
He had His beard torn out; He was beaten with a whip with sharp bone tips embedded.
He was spat on, ridiculed, and He was nailed to a cross.
So Jesus knows all about pain.
He suffered on the cross so that eternal life you may gain.
He died on the cross for people like you and me.
Before I go on, I must say that all sins are forgivable by God except blasphemy against The Holy Ghost.
Blasphemy against The Holy Ghost is a deliberate rejection of Jesus Christ, God, His offer of salvation, and The Holy Ghost.
Now the point is that although suicide is a sin, it’s a forgivable sin.
If anyone teaches that suicide is an unforgivable sin is teaching an outright lie from Satan.
Samson in Judges 16:28-31 committed suicide by killing himself alongside a few thousand Philistines (enemies of Israel).
Samson in Hebrews 11:32 is mentioned as a champion of faith.
Now I don’t condone suicide, but all sins (including suicide) are forgivable by God except one, blasphemy against The Holy Ghost.
I also want to say that the devil hates humanity and will do any thing to make people’s lives miserable and will use anyone close to us to attack us.
As I said earlier, I may not know what you are dealing with, but Jesus did get me through depression.
Oh yes, Jesus has brought me a long way and has helped me through some tough times.
My depression was a rough period of my life.
Life wasn’t working out as I had hoped and for at least seven years I was depressed.
All I wanted to do was hang out late, get drunk, and mope around and complain about everything.
I was also a very negative person back then.
It was Jesus who reached way down to pick me up and to give me strength during those tough times.
Jesus got me out of my depression.
Jesus is the calm in the storms of my life.
That’s why I am asking you to try Jesus.
He is The Comforter that will give you comfort.
He’s the God of peace that will give you peace in a turbulent world.
He will be your best friend if you let Him in your heart and your life.
In other words, Jesus will love you always.
So please don’t end your life because Jesus loves you.
