When you stand up for Christ and let others know about your faith, opposition is inevitable. Opposition is a guarantee. Your faith will be challenged. Those who don't believe will mock not only your faith but in worst case scenarios, your intelligence. How do you respond without meeting their hateful and hurtful words with hateful and hurtful words of your own? How do you keep a calm and level head? How do you refrain from feeling insulted? How do you tell the truth and stand up for the truth without going down a rabbit hole of worthless back-and-forth debate? The answer to all of these questions is, we respond as Christ did.
Jesus was always put into situations where He was being questioned by people who didn't believe Him or didn't want to believe Him and were trying to set Him up every chance they got. The way Christ responded to these individuals gives us the perfect example of ways we too can respond today!
