None to Comfort Them

Click here for the audio version

To weep is to experience profound emotion, and humanity has wept for multiple causes. Tears have been shed in the wake of substantial personal loss, as the Eleventh of John records the weeping of family and friends at the death of Lazarus, at which time the Savior Himself wept also. The Seventh of Luke tells us of a sinful but penitent woman who wept as she washed the Lord’s feet with her tears and anointed His feet with ointment. The Twenty-Fourth and Twenty-Fifth of Matthew’s Gospel tell us of both the weeping and the gnashing of teeth characteristic of those eternally lost from the Lord’s presence, while the Twenty-First of Revelation assures the redeemed that God shall wipe all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, sorrow, nor crying. People have wept for loss and penitent remorse, but none will weep more than the lost; and there shall be none to comfort them.
