Daily Devotional for April 2
"He answered him to never a word." Bible Study Reference: Matthew 27:14
He had never been slow of speech when He could bless the sons of men, but He
would not say a single word for Himself. "Never man spake like this Man,"
and never man was silent like Him. Was this singular silence the index of
His perfect self-sacrifice? Did it show that He would not utter a word to
stay the slaughter of His sacred person, which He had dedicated as an
offering for us? Had He so entirely surrendered Himself that He would not
interfere in His own behalf, even in the minutest degree, but be bound and
slain an unstruggling, uncomplaining victim? Was this silence a type of the
defenselessness of sin? Nothing can be said in palliation or excuse of human
guilt; and, therefore, He who bore its whole weight stood speechless before
His judge. Is not patient silence the best reply to a gainsaying world? Calm
endurance answers some questions infinitely more conclusively than the
loftiest eloquence. The best apologists for Christianity in the early days
were its martyrs. The anvil breaks a host of hammers by quietly bearing
their blows. Did not the silent Lamb of God furnish us with a grand example
of wisdom? Where every word was occasion for new blasphemy, it was the line
of duty to afford no fuel for the flame of sin. The ambiguous and the false,
the unworthy and mean, will ere long overthrow and confute themselves, and
therefore the true can afford to be quiet, and finds silence to be its
wisdom. Evidently our Lord, by His silence, furnished a remarkable
fulfillment of prophecy. A long defence of Himself would have been contrary
to Isaiah's prediction. "He is led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a
sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He openeth not His mouth." By His
quiet He conclusively proved Himself to be the true Lamb of God. As such we
salute Him this morning. Be with us, Jesus, and in the silence of our heart,
let us hear the voice of Thy love.
