The Tears of God
The Bible was given to reveal God to man, and He is a God like no God that man could devise. He is one God, but He is a Trinity. He is Spirit, but He became a man. He is a lion and a lamb. He is a Judge and a Saviour. He is a tender father and a consuming fire. He is the God of heaven and hell. The most amazing side of God is His tender mercy. God is so merciful that He humbled Himself to become a man, to come into this sin cursed world, to live among sinners, to live as a poor man, to live as a Servant, and to allow Himself to be shamefully treated and crucified in order to atone for the sins of His enemies. God is meek and lowly in heart (Mat. 11:29). He is so merciful that He humbles Himself to seek sinners and to call them to His feast of salvation. He humbly knocks on the door of the rebel, desiring him to open the door so that He might sup with him (Rev. 3:20). God is so merciful that He weeps over sinners even when He knows they won’t repent. “And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it” (Luke 19:41). “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under herwings, and ye would not!” (Matthew 23:37).
