Jesus Wept... John 11:32-36

Then, when Mary came where Jesus was, and saw Him, she qfell down at His feet, saying to Him, "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died." Therefore, when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, He groaned in the spirit and was troubled. And He said,  "Where have you laid him?" They said to Him, "Lord, come and see." Jesus wept. Then the Jews said, "See how He loved him!"  John 11:32-36

"Jesus wept." (v35)

Not only is that the shortest verse in the Bible... it is a powerful one!

He wept: He was fully man.

He wept: He relates to our pain.

He wept: He loves us!

He wept: He is grieved over the effects of sin.

He wept: He is compassionate.

He wept: He is tasted death understanding fully well what would take place.

When you are down, distraught, lonely, or the like... take comorf in knowing Jesus loves you and showed it!
