“When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.  Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!”
John 11:33-35 KJV

Pastor John McFarlane Moore wrote one of my favorite hymns “Burdens are Lifted At Calvary”.  I believe Pastor Moore wrote these words from the depths of his heart.  “Troubled soul, the Saviour can see, Ev'ry heartache and tear; Burdens are lifted at Calvary Jesus is very near.”  We have a tender loving Saviour.

There are times when we don’t want anyone to see us crying but Jesus sees our tears.  Jesus is not only our Saviour, He is also our best Friend and when we cry, He weeps with us and when we are happy He rejoices with us.  Do you realize what a privilege it is to be loved by the Saviour of the world?

It is very important and even urgent that we tell our loved ones how much they mean to us.  Don’t put it off!  One of my pastors said in a sermon “I was going to tell my uncle how much I loved him and appreciated him but I kept putting it off and when I finally decided to tell him it was too late because He died”.

Heavenly Father, You are a tender compassionate loving Father and You take such good care of us.  Thank You for the many countless times You have encouraged and comforted me.  I pray for every person who is hurting.  Please encourage and comfort them.  In Jesus’ Name, I pray.  Amen.
