RIVER OF TEARS

Luke 19:40-41 “I tell you,” he replied, ‘If they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.’ As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it and said, ‘If you,  even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace–but now it is hidden from your eyes.'”

The Scene: A picture of rain and a river flowing- representing Jesus’ tears, as rain. Jesus’ weeping is mentioned only three times in the Holy Scriptures.

Jeremiah 9:1 “O that my head were a spring of water and my eyes a fountain of tears!  I would weep day and night for the slain of my people.”

Jesus’ love for us is immeasurable. He gave His all, His life for all mankind, so that they might enjoy eternal salvation with Him and our Father God in heaven. The Lord weeps for those He loves.

Hebrews 5:7 “During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.”
