The Heart of Christ Revealed in His Tears
 

There was great joy in the hearts of Jesus' followers on the day that has come to be known as Palm Sunday. For three years they had seen the Lord perform miracles. His divine power was demonstrated fully when he raised Lazarus from the dead. The news of this tremendous feat had spread like wildfire through the land, and many came to see Lazarus as much as Jesus.

 

Although many people were excited to see Jesus that day, he knew there was a core of unbelief among the rulers. The Pharisees and the chief priests were even conspiring to kill Lazarus, because Christ raising him from the dead was causing so many to believe. And Jesus knew he would soon be rejected by his people. So, in the midst of the celebration that day, he was experiencing profound grief. Even as he received the praise and worship of his followers, he wept over Jerusalem.

 

Luke 19:41-42 records Christ's lament over the unbelief of his people. "As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it and said, 'If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace - but now it is hidden from your eyes.'" He knew the hearts of those set against him. Their pride and greed kept them from seeing the truth. But he loved them, and wept over their spiritual blindness.

 

This is the heart of Christ: loving the people, even as they turned him over to be crucified; offering no answer to the false charges against him, but enduring the cross for our sin.

 

This is the heart of Christ: loving the thieves being crucified with him; saving one who believed, promising him a place in Paradise.

 

This is the heart of Christ: loving the Roman soldiers who guarded him as he hung on the cross; asking his Father in heaven to forgive them, because they did not really understand what they were doing.

 

As he entered Jerusalem that first Palm Sunday, Jesus knew what was about to happen to him. But, amazingly, he did not weep for himself. He did not turn from his destiny. He did not shrink from the horror of it. The heart of Christ is revealed in his tears, not for himself, but for us.     Pastor Daniel Rhodes
