Grace for the Day: The Compassionate Jesus

Image

 

As the He stood before Lazarus’s tomb . . .

Jesus wept.

Now, we know what He was going to do.

We know how the story ends . . .

But even moments before

He raised Lazarus from the dead –

He wept.

Passersby had thought that Jesus wept

For the loss of His friend

But wouldn’t it make more sense,

Knowing good and well what He was about to do,

That He wept not for Lazarus

But for His mourning family?

Jesus has a soft spot in His heart for those that weep.

Even moments before a miracle,

Seconds before “Come forth”,

We have a Savior who sympathizes with us.
