Jesus wept

Joh 11:33 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in his spirit and greatly troubled.
Joh 11:34 And he said, “Where have you laid him?” They said to him, “Lord, come and see.”
Joh 11:35 Jesus wept.
Joh 11:36 So the Jews said, “See how he loved him!”

This is striking. The Almighty, the one and only true God, the creator of heaven and earth, the sovereign Ruler and King cried. He shed tears. He felt sorrow. He was troubled. He was moved.

Why?

Because of love.

As you set out on your weekend, consider this. God is love. He loves so much that He cried when someone died. Similarly, He is sad every day when people die without knowing Him. When people deny Him. When people seek their own glory. When people boast in themselves. When people insult Him. When people don’t believe, and are lost forever.

Get to know God. Know about Him, and know Him. Follow Him. He loves.
