Read: Matthew 23:37-39
Super glues. Super adhesives. In our 21st century, we have the technology to fix anything. But science has yet to discover a product strong enough to mend a broken heart. For that you will have to go to the Saviour, who specialises in such matters. He is the one who, in the final days of His life on earth, saw the city of Jerusalem, and what He saw made Him weep. In Matt. 23:37, Jesus says, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!”
D. L. Moody said, “From Adam’s day to ours, tears have been shed, and a wail has gone up from the broken-hearted. And it is a mystery to me how all those broken hearts can keep away from Him who has come to heal them. Jesus often looked up to heaven and sighed. I believe it was because of so much suffering around Him. It was on His right and on His left – everywhere on earth. And the thought that He had come to relieve the people of their burdens, yet so few would accept Him, made Him sorrowful. Do you think there is a heart so broken that it can’t be healed by Him? He can heal them all. But the great trouble is that people won’t come.”
Jesus wept over a city, not for its buildings, but for its people. Their hearts and spirits were broken, and they were in need of repentance and repair. Though He wept, He can tenderly wipe the tears from your eyes. For He is the great Physician, capable of healing every broken and wounded heart brought to Him. But you must be willing to put yourself under His care. He has so much to give. But very few are willing to receive. Let that few include you.
