“1Now a certain man was ill, Lazarus of Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 2It was Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was ill. 3So the sisters sent to him, saying, “Lord, he whom you love is ill.”John 11:1-3
“5Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.”John 11:5
Jesus loved Mary, Martha and Lazarus.
They were his disciples. His friends.
When your friends celebrate, you celebrate. And when your friends hurt, you hurt.
Christ Jesus is Lord and Master over all creation, His is the King of all kings and the Lord of all lords. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last. He is the great I AM, the Living God.
He is also a friend.
“When Jesus saw her weeping, … he was deeply moved in his spirit and greatly troubled.”John 11:33
“Jesus wept.”John 11:35
Are you heavy laden? Is your heart sick? Hope deferred?
Do you weep?
The Lord Jesus weeps with you.
I pray you know his peace.
