Suicide Sermon – Like a Broken Vessel: The Gospel and Suicide

(Author’s Note: Yes, I know I am suppose to be on vacation but I had to share this resource with you.)

I sometimes spend Sunday evening listening to sermons from Pastor Adam Hamilton at Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas. (Our Bible Study group recently did 2 of his Bible Study’s. )

On July 9th he did a sermon about suicide and hope. It is a beautiful sermon and will give hope  and ease guilt someone might be feeling after a loved one died from suicide.

Below is the phone number to the National Suicide Hotline, the link to their website, a link to a book Pastor Hamilton mentions and his sermon.

Please watch and pass on to someone who is walking through dark times and needs hope.

 

Like a Broken Vessel: The Gospel and Suicide – Pastor Adam Hamilton

 

Psalm 31

14 But I trust in you, O Lord;

    I say, “You are my God.”

15 My times are in your hand;
    rescue me from the hand of my enemies and from my persecutors!

16 Make your face shine on your servant;
    save me in your steadfast love!

But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. 

John 1:12

Focus on receiving and believing this week.

Why?

Because our God is a mountain mover and our God Is Mighty To Save.

We sang this song in church this morning and I thought I would share it with you.

52 Bible Verses for a Joy Filled Year – Week 28

It is an overcast, rainy day in November 2016 as I am putting this series together. It is at this point in my writing, that I discovered week 28 was missing from my deck of cards (52 Weeks To A Positive Life by Norman Vincent Peale).

So I added these verses to the series for you to meditate on this week.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

John 3:16 – 17
