Jesus Wept 87

Working Out

Workman's Helmet and BeltSomeone once said that discipleship is the art of "working out what God has worked in." Saint Paul in Philippians 2.13 puts it another way, "for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose." But what does it mean to be a disciple? How does Jesus intend us to follow Him?✞

Full of Mercy

Lazarus' TombJesus said in Luke 6.8, "Be merciful just as your Father is merciful.". The word "merciful" means "compassionate" or "pitying." Jesus showed that he was merciful in one very moving experience at the tomb of Lazarus. "Jesus wept" is memorable not only as the shortest verse in the Bible but also in its depth of Jesus' emotional feeling. It revealed Jesus' soul rainbow eyes. At that moment, more than any other, Jesus revealed his love for his friend, Lazarus. As the Native American Guy A. Zona once said, "The soul would have no rainbow had the eyes no tears."
