But Jesus kept silent.
Matthew 26:47-68

As shown here, sometimes being a leader is to refuse to defend himself. Jesus knew to defend himself would be to take it out of God’s hand. We are to trust God with things we would naturally, most likely, do for ourselves.

I need to remain sensitive and vulnerable enough to defuse potentially explosive situations – even if it remains refusing to resist. Afterall, Jesus is our example – whoo better to follow?

Lord, help me to be sensitive to the Spirit. Lead me in being a good and strong leader. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
