Jesus Wept

Sunday 9th March 2008

Jesus wept.

Jesus has met with Mary and Martha who are deep mourning over the death of their brother Lazarus. On seeing their tears Jesus is moved with compassion, giving "a sigh that came straight from the heart".

This is the shortest verse in the Bible and yet says so much about who Jesus is to me. My God is no remote, stern, unfeeling deity. He is my brother who enters into my life, feels what I am feeling, weeps when I am weeping. His arm is literally around my shoulder. What a friend. What a God...

Jesus, my brother. I give the joy and despair, the triumph and frustrations of my day over to You.
Little Flower, please pray for me.
