JESUS GRIEVES WITH US

JESUS GRIEVES WITH US UNTIL THAT DAY


About two thousand years before the horrendous tsunami devastation of December, 2004, we see Jesus; a solitary figure in the gospel bowed with grief at the tomb of His beloved friend Lazarus - grieving for his death.

But if Jesus grieves and cares so much, why does He allow devastations at all?

Part of the answer to this question I think must come from the notable event that involved the Assyrian capital of Nineveh. God sent Jonah the prophet to Nineveh to warn them of their godlessness and their impending destruction. But Jonah was reluctant to go and deliver Gods message of salvation to the Ninevites. Rather than obey God, he became furious with God - prefering Ninevehs damnation rather than their salvation. But God retorted with the following question: Nineveh has more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right from their left... should I not be concerned about that great city?
Yes, Jesus cares and is concerned for the world whom He shed His blood. However, He permits deaths and devastati ons sometimes in order to stir the compassion in our own hearts towards the lost. Prophet Jeremiah, reflecting in a small way the torrent of grief that streams from the heart of God, wept with tears, Oh, that my eyes . . . were a fountain of tears.
