Our Tears and God's Tears

Sometimes the pain 'causes the tears to flow, as the rain that falls. Sometimes the hurt runs too deep for tears; yet there is a promise for comfort. A promise that one day all the evil in the world, all the pain and sorrow will be no more and the tears that have flowed from hurting hearts - broken hearts, God will wipe away.

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
(Revelation 21:4)

Just think about it, our tender, loving Father - the Almighty God of the universe will wipe away our tears! My tears and your tears!

But who will wipe away God's tears?

I believe you and I are the only ones who can, by our love, by our thoughts, by our actions, by being deep diggers instead of surface 'scratchers' for truth, by our earnestness to know the will of God and by being willing to stand up for it no matter the cost. Will we be found faithful?

Oh, I'm so homesick for heaven, aren't you?

Will we wipe away the tears of God by doing our part to be among those who are saved when He comes?

Will you? Will I?
