Reading: John 11: 35
When people suffer, they may believe that God doesn't know how they feel. They may think that God has not felt the same type of pain that they do. They may say that God just doesn't understand.
That is not the case, however. God sent Jesus Christ to earth. Jesus was God's son in human form. And, Jesus felt the same type of pain we feel. In fact, He felt even greater pain on the cross. When Jesus found out about the death of Lazarus, He wept. He felt the pain of losing someone you care for.
God does understand. God feels your pain. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
