When our tear ducts have dried up, our heart may have shriveled up. When we are too strong to cry, we may have become too weak to really care. When the tears of others make us uncomfortable, we may be comfortable in our own self-reliance. However, when we comprehend the compassion of Christ and see His wet eyes of love for us, we weep. He weeps over our loss, He cries for our comfort, and He hurts over our hurt. He weeps for us.
As He [Jesus] approached Jerusalem and saw the city, He wept over it.” Luke 19:41
Do you by faith drink in the liquid love of the Lord Jesus? Has the compassion of Christ captured your heart so that you now care for others? Yes, this life can be hard, unfair, and careless in its concerns, but you have the privilege to console a community and to love your family. Your passion for people is assurance that Almighty God cares for them in their fears and insecurities. Don’t be afraid to weep for injustice. Cry over sin and ask the Lord to glorify Himself out of your tears.
Your emotions are meant to be moved by the fate of those who, today, risk separation from God tomorrow. Your passionately tearful prayers tear into the enemy’s territory. Imagine holding your child’s hand and silently praying a prayer touched by a tear. Perhaps you ask forgiveness with moist eyes of contrition or embrace a loved one with a comforting caress. Your liquid love speaks volumes when words won’t work.
“When Paul had finished speaking, he knelt down with all of them and prayed. They all wept as they embraced him and kissed him.” Acts 20:36-37
Prayer: Heavenly Father, break my heart for what breaks Yours. Moisten my eyes.
