Robin Williams Made Me Think About Suicide

I’ve been thinking about Robin Williams‘ suicide. Suicide is tangible evidence of the invisible evil forces at work on us all. Humans have been programmed with a survival instinct. It is not natural for us to override that programming and take our own life. Animals don’t do that, why do humans? Because we are continually attacked by invisible evil forces that constantly strive to overcome us, make us hopeless, and coerce us into self-destruction. Jesus put it this way: “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”


Although this invisible battle is real, there is a power that can overcome it in you and carry you to victory — to hope, peace, love, joy, significance, and meaning. The power is a Person — the living, resurrected Jesus Christ. He’s ready to fight in you and through you to give you “life to the full.” Let your battles, pain, and despair drive you to Him, not to self-destruction!

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
