Jesus Wept

Jesus wept.  He knew that Lazarus would soon be raised from the dead and all would be well.  Nevertheless He wept.  He, above all people, understood that human flesh does not enter the kingdom of heaven.  Still He wept.  He considered physical death to be the doorway to the eternal presence of God.  Yet He wept.

Jesus wept because the hearts of two of His dearest friends were broken.  Mary and Martha sobbed with sorrow and it touched the heart of Jesus.  In His mind Jesus knew the facts of eternity.  With His heart Jesus felt the pain of those who grieved.  The hurt He shared with others trickled down His face.

Some probably questioned the practical benefit of such a display.  Jesus did not concern Himself with their opinions.  Jesus wept without shame as He entered into the valley of grief and walked beside those He loved.  Mary and Martha were greatly comforted by Jesus’ tears.

So should you.  Jesus feels your pain when you hurt.  He cares when you grieve.  He identifies with your broken heart.  His breaks too.  What a wonderful Savior He is!  He does not love you from a distance.  He enters your world and shares all of life with you.  You are never alone – even in your darkest hour.
