He Began to Cry

Jesus was going to Jerusalem:
When  He came closer and saw the city, He began to cry. He said, “If you had only known today what would bring you peace! But now it is hidden, so you cannot see it. The time will come when enemy armies will build a wall to surround you and close you in on every side. They will level you to the ground and kill your people. One stone will not be left on top of another, because you didn’t recognize the time when God came to help you.”

—Luke 19:41-44
Because they didn’t recognize the time…

When God comes to help me, I don’t want to fail to recognize it. 

Jesus cried over Jerusalem. 

He wants us to be obedient and faithful. 

He wants what is best for us. 

Can you picture in your mind Jesus crying over Jerusalem?

How does that make you feel?

Does it help you to understand His intense love?
