Jesus wept

November 2nd, 2009 by isaac · No Comments

Below is an excerpt from the sermon I preached yesterday. If you want to read the rest of it, visit the church website: CHMF.

So, the question for us is: what does it mean to worship a God who cries, a God who weeps, a God who longs for us? What does it mean to worship a God who looks a lot like our friend Jen, who stands by her child’s crib in Ohio and cries because she also longs for us? I think that’s what God looks like. I know Jen probably wouldn’t like being compared to God—so I guess it’s good she’s not here to protest. But I think it’s true. God feels that same longing; God cries with those same tears.
