Quietly crucified

“He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so He opened not His mouth (Isaiah 53:7)”. So He was silent. He didn’t say a word. When we are oppressed and afflicted we tend to roar. But not Him. So should we?

“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross (Philippians 2:5-8)”. He Himself also┬ásaid that “if anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me” (Luke 9:23).
