When I Cry

A friend of mine is fighting cancer. He had this Charles Spurgeon quote on his blog:

“. . . Then consider how bravely our Lord endured: herein is confidence. Tears did not drown the Savior’s hope in God. Jesus lived. He triumphed notwithstanding all His sorrows; and because He lives, we shall live also. He says, “Be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). Though our hero had to weep in the fight, yet He was not beaten. He came, He wept, He conquered. You and I share the tears of His eyes, and we shall share the diamonds of His crown. Wear the thorn crown here, and you shall wear the crown of glory hereafter. –Charles Spurgeon, ed. Lance Wubbels, “The Power of Christ’s Tears,”

How awesome. I never thought of Jesus’ tears that way.

He came down and cried my tears.
