In this single, and shortest verse from the Bible we can glean so much.
What does it tell us?
Jesus, Savior of the world, who left the awesomeness of Heaven to be our sacrifice, had to first become like us.
The humanity of Jesus is shown as He weeps.
Because He weeps, it shows me that it’s okay for me to weep.
It’s okay for me to have a broken heart.
It’s not the end of the world.
It shows that when I weep, there is One that understands totally how I feel. Even when I feel isolated by my tears and brokenness, there is One who’s face experienced tears like mine. Jesus.
All this gleaned from two little words.
From nine letters.
3,566,480 letters in the Bible and these nine provide hope and promise.
What a verse!
