The Lord Jesus performed a lot of miracles during His work, yet He always told people not to tell others. What’s God’s will in it?

God Incarnate Does the Work of Saving Man Silently
And yet it is this ordinary person hidden among people who is doing the new work of saving us. He does not clarify anything for us, nor does He tell us why He has come. He merely does the work He intends to do in steps, and according to His plan. His words and utterances become ever more frequent. From consoling, exhorting, reminding, and warning, to reproaching and disciplining; from a tone that is gentle and kind, to words that are fierce and majestic—they all instill both compassion and trepidation in man. Everything that He says hits home at the secrets hidden deep within us, His words sting our hearts, sting our spirits, and leave us ashamed and humiliated. … From Him we enjoy an unending supply of living water, and thanks to Him we live face-to-face with God.
