Have you ever wondered how Jesus felt about suffering. Or, how he feels about your suffering now. Sometimes Scripture gives us a glimpse into how Jesus felt about things. The death of Lazarus in John 11 is a good example.
What you probably notice immediately is that Jesus wept (v. 35). This clearly betrays Jesus' feelings. But, if we just chalk it up to sadness, we'd be missing the full picture. Look at verses 33 and 38. The Scripture says that Jesus was deeply moved. If you're wondering why it would be translated so vaguely, it's because this word isn't easily put into English (the NLT probably comes closest).
The key word that is repeated in both of these is ἐνεβριμήσατο / ἐμβριμώμενος.
In classical Greek this word referred to the snort of a war horse as it moved into battle.
In the Old Testament it is always used to refer to anger or rage.
As Jesus went to the tomb he wasn't only overwhelmed with sadness and grief. He was also enraged, fighting mad. He's angry at sin, disease, and death. But most of all he's furious at the One who is behind it.
Our posture toward evil should be like Jesus'. Sadness because of the suffering, but enraged at it's presence. We ought to move through this world fighting mad at the Evil One and the havoc he wreaks.
This low-burning anger compels us. (Like MADD) We are relentlessly pushing an agenda: Nothing less than the redemption of broken people in a broken world. This causes great damage to the Enemy, and great good for humanity.
