Read John 11:35 (https://bit.ly/396x94y)
One of the shortest bible verses carries the most punch. In this verse, we see the humanity of Christ as he weeps. He hurts when others hurt. But His emotions were different from those of Lazarus’ sisters who were mourning the death of their brother. Earlier in this chapter, Jesus said that Lazarus’ sickness would not end in death. He knew Lazarus was dead before responding to Mary and Martha’s message. He knew He would soon raise Lazarus from the dead. Jesus wept because He felt compassion for the pain of these sisters, even though He knew they ultimately had no need to mourn. Jesus’ death and resurrection to conquer our sins is proof positive of God’s glory and love for us, but He still feels compassion for our pain. We can confidently embrace the truth that Christ’s compassion for us is never failing!
