With love and tears!

THE STORY OF JESUS: John 11:28-37
“Jesus wept.” (John 11:35)
In Jesus, we see God; in Jesus’ tears, we see God’s tears.
Could God or Jesus keep us from dying – technically, yes. (John 11:37)
For some reason God does not just snap His fingers and fix everything.
He does intervene at times, but His goal is more than just fixing our problems.
God is addressing the source of our problems, our sin condition.
Our selfish, sinful hearts have resulted in this broken, messed up world.
He could just ‘fix it’, instead He sets out to ‘fix us’.
In Jesus (human) we see what ruling over and caring for creation looks like.
We see love, justice, compassion, and tears – a true human and God-like response.
With love, and tears, God rescues us from sinful, selfish living…
And restores us to be loving leaders and caregivers.
Like Jesus, we need to weep with those who weep, suffer with those who suffer.
And offer ourselves in service to God, and to all, with love and tears.
This is how we are saved – this what we are saved for!
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, Your tears speak volumes. Thank You for showing me how much You care, for all people. May my tears flow with Your for those who still need to experience Your love.

    Jesus knows our lives and He knows our good times and He knows our bad times. And even in those bad times He calls us to Him.
