One Like Us - August 17, 2015

John 11:35 (New International Version)
35Jesus wept.

The verse in John above is the shortest verse in our Bible, yet these two words are some of the most important. They show the compassion our Lord and Savior had for mankind as he walked the earth, and it is an example to us of how God feels about His people today. The incident above highlighted Jesus's seeing the grief expressed at the death of his friend Lazarus. and even though He knew that the incident would lead to one of his greatest miracles, raising his friend from the dead, he was moved by the emotions of those around him.

We have a Savior that has experienced our emotions, struggles and pain; One who is just like us in many ways. He cares so deeply for us that he has shed his blood to prove it to us. If you find yourself alone and in need of understanding, if you are broken to the point of anguish, reach out to the One who knows you. Reach out to the One who offers you salvation and freedom for your soul. The only One who can bring you comfort and peace in the midst of your troubles.

Psalm 103:13-14 (New Living Translation)
13 The Lord is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him.

14 For he knows how weak we are; he remembers we are only dust.
