Tears represent the heart, the spirit, and the soul of a person. To put a lock and key on your emotions is to bury part of your Christlikeness!
She went and told those who had been with Him, as they mourned and wept.
- Mark 16:10
Especially when you come to Calvary.
You can’t go to the Cross with just your head and not your heart. It doesn’t work that way. Calvary is not a mental trip. It’s not an intellectual exercise. It’s not a divine calculation or a cold theological principle.
It’s a heart-splitting hour of emotion.
Don’t walk away from it dry-eyed and unstirred. Don’t just straighten your tie and clear your throat. Don’t allow yourself to descend Calvary cool and collected.
Please . . . pause. Look again.
Those are nails in those hands. That’s God on that cross. It’s us who put him there.
