Lesson 112: Why Missions Demands Weeping (Luke 19:41-44)Related Media
No one has ever wept as Jesus has wept. We can say this with confidence because we know that He, being perfect and omniscient, knew both what to weep over and everything that fed into a situation making it weep-worthy. We must take pause then whenever we see Jesus break down in tears as He does in this passage. What was grieving His heart? What do we need to learn about our responsibility to be broken over situations like this as well? Pastor Daniel helps us to look at this passage through the appropriate context of missions, making the main point that, “biblical engagement in missions requires weeping. It begins with weeping, endures with weeping, and concludes with weeping.” To guide our thinking in this, three questions are put forward. 1) Why do we weep? 2) What do we weep about? 3) How do we respond to weeping?
