Christ-level calm--what does it look like?

This is what we have to be today, even in the secular realm.
  • "When he was abused, he did not return abuse; when he suffered, he did not threaten; but he entrusted himself to the one who judges justly." (1 Pet. 2:23)
  • "He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth." (1 Peter 2:22)
  • "Do not resist an evildoer. But if anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn the other also." (Matt. 5:39)
  • "He gave Pilate no answer, not even to a single charge, so that the governor was greatly amazed." (Matt. 27:14)
  • "Pilate asked him again, “Have you no answer? See how many charges they bring against you.” But Jesus made no further reply, so that Pilate was amazed." (Mark 15:4-5)
