Thought for Today
Silence and Security
“And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders,
he answered nothing”
It is in the face of false accusations that the power of Christ is most manifested. Our security in Him, who is our justification, is revealed in the crucible of false accusations, gossip and strife. It is here where His dominion and power in our life is revealed.
Humility is evidenced in a life free from the opinions of others. Its foundation lies in the power of a life rightly related to the will and purposes of God. A life lived in obedience to the truth will not have the need to justify itself to others.
“He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
yet he opened not his mouth”
