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