Whether it be your brother or the rest of the world, we all have sinned and are worthy of death. Therefore, your brother has not sinned any worse than the rest of us. God has promised us that if we confess our sins he is MORE THAN willing to forgive and eventually remove ALL sin from our lives, including the sin of suicide. We need to comfort each other with the love and mercy of God. Below are some inspiring, hopeful Bible passages in to help comfort you while dealing with your brother's suicide:
"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that WHILE WE WERE STILL SINNERS, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)
"If we confess our sins, He is FAITHFUL and just to FORGIVE US our sins and to CLEANSE US from all unrighteousness." (1John 1:9)
"There is therefore now NO CONDEMNATION to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit." (Romans 8:1)
"No temptation has overtaken you except such as is COMMON to man; but God is faithful, who will NOT ALLOW YOU TO BE TEMPTED BEYOND WHAT YOU ARE ABLE, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it." (1Corinthians 10:13)
"Yet in all these things we are MORE THAN conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, SHALL BE ABLE TO SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8:37-39)
"And this is the testimony: that God has given us ETERNAL LIFE, and this life is in His Son." (1John 5:11)
"And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, 'Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and HE WILL DWELL WITH THEM, and they shall be His people. GOD HIMSELF will be with them and be their God.
"And God will WIPE AWAY every tear . . . there shall be NO MORE DEATH, nor SORROW, nor CRYING. There shall be NO MORE PAIN, for the former things have passed away.'
"Then He who sat on the throne said, 'Behold, I MAKE ALL THINGS NEW.' " (Revelation 21:3-5)
