What You'll Discover in this Episode:
The Bible is sufficient for every problem or situation we face and it should be used to help those who struggle with thoughts of suicide. It is not enough to offer kind words and express that you will be praying for them. God has equipped you with knowledge of His word and the Holy Spirit to help them overcome the heavy weight that thoughts of suicide can bring.
During this episode, Pastor Jeff will give you some practical biblical concepts to help you counsel those that are suffering with thoughts of suicide. Armed with these biblical concepts and the Holy Spirit you have all the tools necessary to help prevent the loss of a loved one. We are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus and anything we do to help others is as if we are doing to Him. It is not an easy task but God will give you the courage to help others see His glory and turn away from despair.
Pastor Jeff uses the 4 L’s. These four L’s are love, listen, launch, and lean. These simple L's will go a long way in helping people who struggle with thoughts of suicide. Check out episode 26 to understand practical biblical actions to help those who struggle with thoughts of suicide.
