He Gives Life - Just Because He Loves Us

John 11:33-35 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. "Where have you laid him?" he asked. "Come and see, Lord," they replied. Jesus wept.

Just as Jesus was deeply moved in spirit and troubled when He saw Mary (Lazarus' sister) crying - so He is when He sees us cry, and He cries with us, as He did with Mary. BUT - He has the power to change things - as He did for Mary. Mary wept because her brother lay dead in his grave - Jesus brought him out of the grave and filled him with life again. He'll do the same thing for us, He'll bring life back into what we believe to be dead. Not because we beg Him, not because we're good enough, not because we bargain with Him - but because He loves us.
