"Jesus Wept." The shortest verse in the English Bible.
We come back to these words. We remember them and repeat them to one another, especially in seasons of heartache. There are three times in the Scriptures where Jesus shows deep sadness and tears. These snapshots into the life of Jesus allow us to see that though he was God, Jesus was also human. And if he allowed himself to grieve, maybe we can too.
How appropriate that we talk about sadness on this Memorial Day weekend, as we remember all those who have died in service to our country.
Pastor Tara VinCross will preach the fourth sermon in the series Being Human: living imago dei on the theme of Sadness. You’re invited to engage with God, this scripture, and one another as we worship our Jesus.
