ABC’s of the Word - J

Pam explains the purpose of ABC’s of the Word:"God gave me this idea to start stirring up the Word in each of us by going through the alphabet, one letter each Thursday. I just think it would be cool to see how many different scriptures are listed each week. Even if it doesn't start with the letter of the week, make it predominately about that word that corresponds with the letter of the week. Other than following along with each week's letter there are no rules. Join in when you can and be blessed. Don't worry about missing a week or joining at letter I---whatever, I will willingly add anyone's blog at any time. Let's be encouraged by His Truth!"
This week’s letter is J.

"Jesus wept."
John 11:25

This Bible verse is filled with poignancy. The idea of the Creator weeping, even as He was about to raise Lazarus from death, makes me wonder at His great and tender heart of love for us human beings.

What a lovely reminder of our Savior's tender heart of love! Oh, and that we are not alone. Thank you.

I really don't think we even begin to understand that tender heart of love.

Hi Carrie,
When I was little I was impressed with how short this verse was. Might have even counted it as a verse I knew by heart in my legalistic, counting points, days. Today it holds so much more for me. Have a wonderful day!

I love this passage. I always wonder what depth of pain He felt knowing the agony that those around Him and the pain they felt.
He is truly a compassionate High Priest.
