The cry of the Innocent

He was oppressed and treated harshly, yet He never said a word. He was led like a lamb to the slaughter. And as a sheep is silent before the shearers, He did not open His mouth.
(Isaiah 53:7 NLT)

There’s something so powerful about doing the right thing for the sake of doing it right. Even if you yourself don’t like the idea of it (Luke 22:42). Even if the people around you are thinking it’s ludicrous and tell you, you don’t have to do it (Matt. 16:22-23).
Even if you are being attacked for doing the right thing…

But when the leading priests and the elders made their accusations against Him, Jesus remained silent. “Don’t You hear all these charges they are bringing against You?” Pilate demanded. But Jesus made no response to any of the charges, much to the governor’s surprise.
(Matthew 27:12-14 NLT)

It’s wonderfully pure and incredibly loud when you allow these kinds of actions to speak for itself.

For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps, WHO COMMITTED NO SIN, NOR WAS ANY DECEIT FOUND IN HIS MOUTH; and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously;
(1 Peter 2:21-23 NASB)

Because at the end, the cries (especially the silent ones) of the innocent will be heard and justice will be met.
