When I’ve Been Falsely Accused- Part 3

While I’m discussing false accusations, I can’t help but think of the One who never, ever sinned against anyone, yet took the punishment for the sins of the world. His was the ultimate false accusation, and He responded with the perfect example of humility.

Isaiah 53: 7-10 “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.”

I Peter 2:21-24 “For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.”

My false accusation pales in comparison to Christ’s. And He endured the agony from that false accusation for my benefit! May I respond more like Him as I express the gratitude I owe Him!

  1. Addy, thank you for sharing this wisdom from God’s Word about how we should respond when wronged, and about all the wrong our Lord suffered on our behalf. It is hard to stay grounded when someone does something like this to us. Thanks for your encouragement and example!!!
