Thought of the Day March 18, 2024 Lent: silence before accusers

By 10:56 AM

 Jesus' passion continues as he sees his disciples desert him at the moment of his arrest. Even though he knew they would under the fear of persecution and imprisonment, it still pained Jesus to be left alone. As the soldiers led him away bound, they led him to the high priest,  Ananias. He was mocked and buffeted, falsely accused and threatened. Still he said nothing. He endured all for our sakes. He knew he was innocent. Silence was his defense. How often we seek to defend ourselves, rather than embrace the verbal torments for our own sins! Jesus, help me to share in your passion by enduring the false accusations or judgments in silence, knowing the truth.
