Jesus Wept!

Jesus is 100% God and was 100% man! In John 11:35 the Bible says, “Jesus wept.” Now, this verse is well known for being the shortest verse in the entire 66 books of the canonized Bible. However, that’s not the only thing this verse reveals to its readers!

The fact Jesus wept for His beloved friend (Lazarus) reveals aspects of His human nature, though He was God incarnate, as well as His great care for the people He came to save. By understanding that even our Lord Jesus grieved, experienced sorrow, and felt the weight of loss, this gives believers like you and me permission to feel sad when a loved one passes away, even though believers who die go to be with the Lord and will be resurrected bodily one day when Jesus returns. For those left behind, there will be tears, but Jesus understands and is there to provide comfort and hope.

This one tiny verse, considered the ‘shortest verse’ in the English language contains a lot of important spiritual truth and shows a great deal about who Jesus Christ was and still is to this day!

If you are grieving the loss of a loved one in this season or if your just facing difficulties please make note that Jesus knows and cares for your pain! He is standing with you and He is ready to comfort, strengthen, heal your spirit, restore your hope!
