Making It Quick and Easy

Please copy this document in its entirety if you think it may help someone.
So many people are taking their own lives. Why do people in record numbers feel like their life is not worth living? At times we all question our purpose in this life. We wonder why we are here. Have you ever felt this way? Do you believe that you were born with no real purpose? You may think you are not really special or beneficial in any way. You may have tried to be different, but you are no different than anyone else. You do not think the pain you are enduring is worth continuing a life of pain. Those who are thinking about ending it all wrongly think that suicide is a quick, easy way out of their messed up life, or life that doesn’t meet their expectations.
Perhaps right now you really don’t think you would ever commit suicide, but what about if things got worse for you? Would you ever change your mind? Don’t you think it would be a good idea to prepare yourself before something bad happens, so you will be able to make the right decision. It is best to prepare for life, but even if we don’t plan, life goes on anyway . . . unless we choose to end it.
Here is how I suggest you prepare yourself: Understand the real cost to ending your own life.
You may think that once you are dead, you no longer exist. The Bible says that your soul will live on in eternity in Heaven with God or in the Lake of Fire. There is so much proof that the Bible, the Word of God is true. The Bible has foretold so much in history that has come true, that no intelligent person can dismiss it completely during their life without informing themselves about it. You want no part of spending eternity in the burning Lake of Fire. It is a real place, and eternity is forever with no relief ever in sight. Ever.
Your soul’s eternal destination aside, consider this: God knows everything, including the future. As the Creator of the Universe, it is impossible for Him to not know the future. So God knew you before you were ever conceived. He had a reason for making you exactly as He did. He had a purpose for you; one that only you can fulfill. People you admire the most cannot dream of fulfilling your purpose. That may seem like nonsense right now, but what if God has chosen you to go through some very tough times to prepare you for something that will make the world a better place? God has put you, or will put you, in a well-chosen situation with a special set of gifts for you to use and develop in that situation.
So how do you change the trajectory of your life to start out on this new path and heading in the right direction, the direction you were meant to be going since before you were born?! First, you must become a part of God’s family. God wants you to pray to Him and accept the payment on the Cross of his sinless Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus was fully Man, so he could be one of us, and fully God, so he could be sinless and a worthy payment for the wrongs we have done. Pray to God and ask that Jesus cover your sins with His sacrifice, his shed Blood on the Cross for you own sins. You do not have to be good to pray that prayer! No one is good enough! Church people who are true believers know that they were never good enough to pray it. You just pray it in faith; that God will forgive you because He said He would. Any Bible-believing church will rejoice if you pray that prayer and so will all of Heaven!
That all sounds too easy! Really? You think it was easy for God to send His only begotten Son to die on the Cross for the Sins of everyone in the World who ever lived? The biggest lie ever, is that killing yourself would be quick and easy, but getting into God’s Heaven is nearly impossible. That is totally opposite from the truth.
Is it too easy? No! Just pay attention to this and open your mind! Use the tiny amount of faith that you have and trust in God, who has all the power in the Universe. Please consider praying that prayer. Please do it. Trust in Jesus. Jesus saves souls. He wants to save yours.
After you pray that prayer, unite with other believers. You want to be on sound footing, since you just enraged Satan, who cannot touch you without God’s permission. Satan would like nothing better than to make a mockery out of your new beliefs.
Beloved reader, do not be deceived! The Bible tells of Satan, God’s enemy, who wants you to destroy yourself; that way you will never fulfill God’s purpose in your life. If you don’t take my word on all this; check it out in the Bible. There are many places online that you can go to get a copy of the Bible. Online versions often enable you to navigate through it using search words, such as “Salvation”. Conversely, it would be a good idea for you to get one and read it cover to cover, and ask questions to people online or in a Bible-believing church to help you out.
If you read the back of the Bible, you will see that God is on the winning side. You will see that those who placed their faith in Him, were (will be, since it is a foregone conclusion) on the winning side.
Romans 3:10-12, and 23
As the Scriptures say, “No one is righteous—not even one. No one is truly wise; no one is seeking God. All have turned away; all have become useless. No one does good, not a single one.” … For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. (NLT)
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. (NLT)
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (NLT)
Romans 10:9-10, and 13
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved … For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (NLT)
Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. (NLT)
So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. (NLT)
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. (NLT)
