Psalms 126:5-6 “They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.”
We have all shed a tear or two. Some more than others. But, tears just the same.
Some have been shed for ourselves and some for others. Some for loss, others for pain. Some tears have been shed for broken hearts, some for things regained. Tears flow when we lose someone dear, but also when their presence is felt so near.
Most often, it is something personal to us that causes tears to come. In this Psalm, we hear the heart of the God speak to us. Our Heavenly Father wants us to be after the souls of all who do not know Him.
Know this; Hell was never created for man – it was created for the devil and those angels that followed him in rebellion. But God, who is perfect in all things, had to punish those who would reject His Son’s sacrifice for their sin debt.
When you consider the sacrifice that Jesus Christ suffered; the pain, the agony, the loss and ultimate separation from the Father for us; it is not something to be taken lightly. For us to receive the greatest gift and not want others to know the same is just plain selfish.
If you knew that you had the cure for cancer, would you keep it to yourself, or would you want the world to know?
If you would come upon a person in trouble, would you come to their aid?
Reverse the roles and it looks a bit different – or does it?
I believe that our Heavenly Father weeps when we, who have the truth, fail to share it as we have been commanded. We who are saved, must capture the heart of our Savior when it comes to reaching lost souls for Christ.
Luke 19:10 “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
Our tears will beget great fruit – in time. We must be about the business of seeking after lost souls!
