“He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.”
(Revelation 21:7 NKJV)

Some people are so overwhelmed by life that they try to escape it all by jumping from a tall building or bridge in the tragic choice of suicide. In an attempt to leave a world of pain they enter into an eternity of suffering in the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels. (Matthew 25:41) Most would never consider jumping from a great height to commit suicide but many people are stumbling to their death from smaller hills every day. The Bible says that “a person who follows all of God’s law but fails to obey even one command is guilty of breaking all the commands in that law.” (James 2:10) Our sins cause us to fall in one direction, downwards. We overcome this sinful descent by putting our trust in the risen Lord Jesus whom by the power of his blood cleanses us from all unrighteousness.
