The Book of Lamentations describes the spirit in which every Christian should walk. The Bible says that Jesus was a Man of sorrows, acquainted with grief (see Isa. 53:3). Those who acquaint themselves with the sufferings of this life, and the sufferings of the next for those who die in their sins, will lament in horror and then preach with passion. The lost, with the same loves and fears as we have, are held captive by the enemy (see 2 Tim. 2:26) and await unawares the most terrible of fates, but for the grace of God. Tragically, they do not consider their eternal destiny (see v. 9).

Lamentations 1:5 Her adversaries have become the master,
Her enemies prosper;
For the Lord has afflicted her
Because of the multitude of her transgressions.
Her children have gone into captivity before the enemy.
