When was the last time you wept for others?

Lamentations 1 to 5 “Do You Weep for Your People?”

lamentations 1 to 5 tears.2ajpg

In Israel long ago God raised a prophet to tell God’s saving message but the people turned away.  For 45 yrs. Jeremiah faithfully reminded the people of their sin and consequences with no repentance.  And so, just as Jeremiah prophesied, the nation was destroyed both physically and spiritually. God’s discipline was harsh and long and Jeremiah’s heart was broken.

As Jeremiah wept we should also. We should weep for our countrymen who hear the gospel and reject it. We should weep for ourselves if we have failed to share the truth. But even as he wept he knew this truth which never changes:

The Lord’s loyal kindness never ceases; his compassions never end. They are fresh every morning; your faithfulness is abundant!

Jeremiah poured out his pain in his writing and as we read these words, tears run down our faces for those who have heard and reject and for those who have yet to hear.

Are we weeping along with Jeremiah?
