John 11:35 “Jesus wept.”

Charles Spurgeon once posed this question to his Congregation, “If Jesus hadn’t shed tears, would He be able to wipe away ours?” We seem to forget that Jesus was fully man & fully God…that He was living in a mortal body & thus was capable of suffering in all respects as we do. Jesus was weeping out of compassion & empathy for the people He loved…something that’s happened to all of us one time or another. And we can take comfort in Revelation 21:4 when it says, “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain.” That’s because, in the Presence of God’s glory, no tears can fall…and in the sufficiency of His grace, peace is found.
