“And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not” (Luke 7:13).Text — Luke 7:11-15
Our passage is an account depicting the moment of sorrow in the city of Nain where the only son of a widow was dead. Jesus intervened with compassion and restored her dead son to life, thereby ending the tears of a grieving mother. It is no wonder that Thomas Moore said, “Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.” Today, there is hope for any destitute youth suffering from any incurable disease, experiencing failure in academics, facing acute financial problems, or grieving due to the loss of a loved one. Weep not! Jesus can bring joy to a sorrowful situation.
Death comes to the old and young at various times. When it happens, the bereaved are usually sorrowful. Hence we must always be ready for eternal life. “When Satan tempted the very first man, Adam, to sin, his goal was to bring forth death. There are actually three kinds of death: spiritual, physical and eternal,” said Marilyn Hickey. Every youth needs salvation from Christ to escape eternal death, which separates one from God forever.
There is hope
Rather than weep, call upon God for Help.
