Song Story:  THE  MUSIC:   

This is a PATTERN song, to help people find related scriptures. In this song, the pattern is Chapter 1, verse 21 (Colossians, James, Romans) to help us see that Jesus wept and gave His all to save his enemies.... Jesus wept and gave His all to save YOU and me while we were His enemies..... and Jesus calls us to follow His example.
Dedicated to Amazingly loving Jesus,  8 January 2012.

Romans 5:8   (New King James Version)   “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Colossians 1: 21   “This includes you who were once far away from God. You were his enemies, separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions.”     

On the Cross, it does NOT say Jesus wept for us.  YET
through His Bible, we know His heart:  Jesus truly loves us.

Jesus said "Love your enemies" and He surely showed us how.
He died for you and me on that cross while we were enemies of God.
Colossians 1: 21.... Colossians 1: 21.


Jesus wept for Jerusalem, love like a mother hen. He
cried out that He yearned to gather His enemies under His wings, Luke 13.
God's Word  says you're His enemies if your focus is this life.
He wants you to live more than these few years,
wants your eternal life with God.
James 1 verse 21..... James 1 verse 21.

While you were God's enemy, Jesus died for you.  He's
loved you despite your faults, your sins:  Colossians 1: 21, He still loves you!
Through Jesus, God has reconciled all us to Him if we come.
He weeps for those who see God in Nature,
but choose  NOT  to glorify our  God!

Romans 1:21...... Romans 1:21.

Minds set on earthly things create GOD's enemies.
Philippians 3: verse 18 and 19.... yet
Jesus loves and weeps for God's enemies and
calls you and me to weep for our enemies,  and for
    those who don't yet see God's love.......

SPOKEN AT END:       Colossians 1: 19-23a New Living Translation:   

           For God in all His fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself.  He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross. This includes you who were once far away from God. You were His enemies, separated from Him by your evil thoughts and actions.  Yet now He has reconciled you to Himself through the death of Christ in His physical body.  As a result, He has brought you into His own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before Him without a single fault.  But you must continue to believe this truth and stand firmly in it.”


James 1: 21, New Living Translation:  “So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls.”

Romans 1: 20 - 21, New King James Version
20  “For since the creation of the world His invisible [attributes] are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,  21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify [Him] as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools.... “

Jesus set the stage for Christ-followers, before He showed the extreme example in His own death to give His enemies a way to be saved from hell:  We read His words in Luke 6:27, "But I say to you who hear:  Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,….”

    Luke 6:35 contains AMAZING words for our LORD God:  "But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He [GOD]  is kind to the unthankful and evil.

Jesus says at the end of  Luke 13 such words of sorrow that the scriptures do not have to say that He literally wept:   "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones God's messengers! How often I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn't let Me”    [verse 34].

    In Philippians 3:18 and 19b New Living Translation,  Paul provides an example for us, that you should weep for your enemies who will endure eternal hell if they don’t realize God’s Truth before they die: “

I have told you often before, and I say it again with tears in my eyes,
that there are many whose conduct shows they are really enemies
of the cross of Christ…   who set their minds on earthly things..”
