“Jesus wept” (John 11:35). Even though He knew Lazarus had died and was buried, Jesus wept. He knew he would raise Lazarus from the dead, yet He wept. When he saw Mary weeping, He wept. Like the tip of an iceberg, these two simple words give us a glimpse of the depth of Jesus’ love and compassion.
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted (Matt. 5:4 NIV).
I pray that those of you who are grieving will experience His peace and comfort.
