The Creator of all worlds in tears!

The Creator of all worlds in tears!


“Lazarus is dead.” John 11:14

“When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who

 had come along with her also weeping, He was

 deeply moved in spirit and troubled.” John 11:33

“Jesus wept!” John 11:35

Let us turn aside for a little and see this great sight!

It is the Creator of all worlds in tears–the God-man

Mediator dissolved in tenderest grief!

Jesus wept out of sympathy for the bereaved. The

hearts at His side were breaking with anguish. All

unaware of how soon and how wondrously their

sorrow was to be turned into joy–this appalling

thought was alone present to them in all its

fearfulness–“Lazarus is dead!” When He, the

God-man Mediator, with the refined sensibilities

of His tender heart, beheld the poignancy of their

affliction, the pent-up torrent of His own human

sympathies could be restrained no longer. His

tears flowed also! “Jesus wept!”
