A few weeks ago after my Sunday sermon I had multiple people harass me because I did not cry while speaking. Now let me make this clear…I never cry-it’s not apart of my emotional make-up. If I cry it’s usually over my girls. I didn’t even cry at my mom’s funeral.

But when I have a mic and I discuss poverty or the cross in front of a crowd…I cry. I hate it and I love it. But I can’t help it.

There is a good chance if you don’t have something that makes you cry you have nothing to live for.

What breaks your heart? When was the last time you wept and sought God?

I want to weep for those who go without…I want to weep for those who are broken…I want to weep for those who are far from God…I want to weep for an apathetic Church. I want to weep for my city and nation.

  1. I cry when you leave the room. It makes me very sad.

    Seriously, when I am preaching and God’s grace just hits me anew while on the pulpit, it just stops me and the eyes start welling up. It is almost like I realized his grace all over again.

  2. LOL, you rock JVH.
    I hope we never lose that passion.
