Dec 19 Devotion: Jesus Wept

John 11:33-36- When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled,

 34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.

 35 Jesus wept.

 36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!

Jesus Wept!

-Separation Sin has Brought!

-Sentence Sin has Brought!

-Self-reliance Sin has Brought!  (satisfaction, complacency)

-Scepticism Sin has Brought!  (doubt)

-Sum that Sin has Brought!  (war, famine, pestilence, ungodliness, wickedness, idolatry, etc.)

Note: in being “Christlike” we must too weep as He did!

*Dry eyes lead to dry Sanctuaries, Services, and Saints!

**When we ache for the Redemption of Sinners, Revival of the Saints, and for Righteousness in our Streets insomuch that it stirs our emotions to weep; then and only then will we be found worthy to bear the name Christian!
