A WORD FROM YOUR PASTOR

John 11 tells us that Jesus wept.  Many of us know that simply because we know that it is the shortest verse in the Bible.  V34…”Jesus wept.” But why did He weep? The story surrounding that verse is the death of Lazarus.  Jesus had heard that His friend Lazarus was sick.  When He made His way to Lazarus’ house, his sisters Mary and Martha met Him on the way, and they were weeping because he had already passed away by the time Jesus got there.  Mary said to Him “Lord, if you had been here, my brother Lazarus wouldn’t have died.” And the very next verse says that when Jesus saw them all weeping, He was moved in His spirit, and was greatly troubled.  And then v34 says that He wept. As you know, within minutes Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead.  So why would Jesus have wept? We’ll talk about that this Sunday morning, and hopefully try and answer that question along with some others 😊 Between now and then, read verses 28-37 and ask yourself “Why would Jesus have wept?” Love you all, and I will see you Sunday! And a special “thanks” to all of you who prayed for my wife’s family last weekend.  It was a sweet time of remembrance and celebration! Bro. Chris
