Matt. 27:30-31 “And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head. And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.”
The Lord Jesus Christ could afford to be reviled. He could afford to be spit upon. He could afford to be weak and He could afford to be foolish in the eyes of silly, sinful men even though He is God because He knew the One by whom had sent Him and the One into whose hands He had committed His Spirit. He could afford to do as He was told, and He could afford to die as He was told. Because He knew that Someone else was taking care of the consequences.
If you are prepared to do the will of the Lord, no matter how weak it may make you look, or foolish it may seem to other people, then you become delightfully detached from the pressure of circumstances, and they ceases to be the criterion in the decisions which you make. You do as you are told whether God’s instructions appear to be compatible with the immediate situation or not, and you leave God to vindicate Himself and to justify the course of action upon which, at His command, you have embarked.
