Be Blessed
May Our Tongues Not Cause Strife

The Silence that Amazed

In a day when we, as Christians, feel compelled to protest our losses of special privilege, criticism, insult, offense, or false characterization of our motives, we have a role model for how to handle it.

After saying all there was to say, he just went silent. He was not standing there to defend himself. After speaking truth, he simply embodied it with humility, grace, confidence, determination, and non-resistance to the consequences.

It was his silence that amazed Pilate.

" And Pilate again asked him, “Have you no answer to make? See how many charges they bring against you.” But Jesus made no further answer, so that Pilate was amazed."

(Mark 15:4-5 ESV)
