Jesus’ Gift to a Weeping Mother
Sermon for Sunday May 10. Lesson 10 in a series on the miracles of Jesus.
It has been said that tears are words that cannot be spoken.
“What happens to our tears? We wipe them away… We assume they evaporate somewhere into the great universe.” (Lowell F Johnson)
But the Bible tells us what happens to the tears of God’s children:
“You number my wanderings; Put my tears into Your bottle;
Are they not in Your book? (Psalm 56:8)
The Lord cares –– He Knows every tear that is shed, and the reason for every tear.
In our text today (Luke 7:11-17) the Lord sees the tears of a mother, and tells her “weep not.” Then He gives her a gift to take her tears away––her son alive from the dead!
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”3 John 2
Dear brothers and sisters,
It is week 7 of the Covid-19 coronavirus quarantine. Isolation is never easy, and this has been difficult for all of us. You are in my heart and my prayers, and I hope you are healthy in mind and spirit. I pray that we can assemble with one another soon to worship God together. During this time be sure to remember there is a river that flows from the throne of God, that makes glad the city of God (Psalm 46). Nothing that happens to us on earth will ever change that fact––that God is on His throne and He is in control.
Your fellow servant, Bill Turner
