He went outside and wept bitterly.” Mathew 26:75
Does our loving father expect us to weep? Lord wants us to be happy always, then for what should we weep or should we. Yes we should and we will, that is why from the very mouth of Jesus, He said “Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.” Luke 6:21. So Jesus is telling of the blessing that comes from weeping. So those who weep are blessed. Weeping is the will of God, then for what should we weep, only for two things. When Peter remembered the words of Jesus, he wept bitterly, when the words of loving father convicts you, feel so shameful for disappointing the Lord and weep bitterly, like the sinful lady who came to Jesus “As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears.” Luke 8:38. Weep like this lady, like Peter and like David in Ps 51. Weeping should result from shame and hate of evil. Jesus himself showed the example “When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. Jesus wept.” John 11:33,35 Weep for the others suffering and seeing the people being lost spiritually, that people are going away from the living God. Like Jeremiah “Weep bitterly for him who is exiled,” Jer 22:10. Ask Lord to put a spirit of deep anguish for lost souls and sufferings of others.
Jesus I weep out in anguish for the lost and in bitterness for making you sad by my deeds. Amen
