Jesus Wept

If you were to read this passage at face value you might think that Jesus wept because his friend Lazarus had died. This is what the Jews thought in verse 36. They saw Jesus crying and and commented on how Jesus must of loved Lazarus. But, Jesus' sadness goes much deeper than that.

Jesus knew and even told others in verse 11:4 that Lazarus' sickness would not end up in death. So if Jesus knew that is was not GOD's will for Lazarus to die, why was he sad?

Jesus was moved to the point of tears when He saw Mary and her friends weeping. I know that we cannot see Jesus physically, so sometimes it is hard to know that Jesus LOVES you. I know that when Jesus sees you, when you are sad and crying, He is right there sharing your tears. He LOVES you so much, so try to remember when you are sad, Jesus is right there with you, always know this; Jesus LOVES you so much!

Share If You Love Jesus!
