From the Pastor
In the Gospel of John, we find the shortest verse in the Bible. “Jesus wept.” He was weeping
over the loss of his dear friend Lazarus, who would later be raised from the dead by Jesus.
What comforts me about this verse, is Jesus’ humanity being so obvious. Before the divine Jesus raises Lazarus, the human Jesus sits down and weeps.
This brings me great comfort in times of trial and sadness.
In the first stanza of her poem, “Solitude,” Ella Wheeler Wilcox writes:
“Laugh, and the world
laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone;
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.
Sing, and the hills will answer;
Sigh, it is lost on the air;
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from voicing care.:
While a appreciate the sentiment, Jesus weeping over Lazarus proves this wrong. When we
laugh, the world laughs with us. When we cry, Jesus cries with us. Take heart, that at your
darkest moments, you are not alone. Take heart, that when you feel so broken and beaten down by this world, that Jesus weeps with you. And when you are at your lowest moment, it is then that God will raise you back up.
