He has a tender heart of love and mercy for all the unsaved. Jesus has compassion for all people. It does not matter if you are rich or poor, black or white, young or old. Jesus loves all people Jesus loves you.
Once Jesus was on a mountain top and looked at Jerusalem below. He saw many houses. As He looked He thought of the many people who were not saved. As He looked He wept over the city. (Read St. Luke 19:41.) Jesus wept because people were lost. Jesus did not weep because He was bitter or hurt. Tears came from His heart because He cared for other people. He wept because of His love for the people who were lost and needed His help. Jesus loved the people in the city of Jerusalem and Jesus also loves you!
