Jesus wept:day four

[Read & meditate on John 11.35. Jesus wept, even though He knew that He would bring Lazarus back to life. What is important about what Jesus didn’t say or do?]

One of the names of Jesus is Emanuel, “God with us.” Jesus didn’t act or speak as someone removed from the situation or the pain, instead He was truly with the people in their pain and sorrow. He entered into their world and experienced their pain and their sorrow. That’s the kind of God I need. One who it truly with me. One who journeys with me through the highs and the lows. A God who is not afraid to hear my questions and experience the depths of my emotion–A God who is truly with me.
