We are made in the Image of God, in as much we were created for relationship like Jesus. Our relationships cause us to think and feel for ourselves and for one another. We have the capacity to think with our minds and experience emotions with our heart.

In John 11 we see the shortest verse in the Bible. “Jesus wept”. Yet with this scene of Lazarus’ death, we see that Jesus was not only an intellectual being but a man who was moved by deep emotions of grief.

Jesus can feel what we are feeling. He indeed can sympathise with whatever we are experiencing. Jesus is always angry towards sin and death and always compassionate with our pain and to seek and save the lost.

John 11:33 ‘When Jesus saw (Mary) weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. “Where have you laid him?” he asked. “Come and see, Lord,” they replied. Jesus wept.’
