John 11: 35

Jesus wept.

Jesus wept–this verse was written when Jesus went to Lazarus’s tomb before he raised him from the dead. He wept even knowing he was about to do perform a miracle. He wept so Jesus had emotions just as we do. In light of the tragedy in Connecticut, I know that Jesus is weeping today as our nation weeps as well.

In times like these, we can’t understand what would make a young man do the unthinkable.

In times like these, we ask why, but there are no answers that make sense or that will comfort those who lost a loved one.

In times like these, let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith.

In times like these, Jesus weeps.

God bless all those affected by this tragedy.
