Standing before the tomb, sensing the heartbreak around Him, Jesus wept. Knowing that in a moment He would perform the greatest miracle so far. He would bring back to life a man rotting in the tomb, He wept at the sorrow and anguish that sin and death brought in its path.
Jesus wept – John 11:35
Jesus wept for his country:
“Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets
Jesus wept for the world:
He wept for the whole world of lost and ruined human beings. In Gethsemane the tears rolled down mingled with blood, so great was His agony as He thought of a lost world.
Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them. Psalm 126:5-6
