Jesus Wept

It's the shortest verse in the bible. But it's profound and gives us a glimpse into the heart of our Savior.

"Jesus wept" (John 11:35).

Having already foretold that Lazarus would rise again, it's likely that Jesus' tears were not just for a man fallen asleep, but for a world stricken with death and sin.

Oh Lord, thank you for the freedom we have in you - and the ability to now say, "o death, where is your sting!?"
