The Silence Answer

The Silence Answer…

Pilate asks Jesus, “What is truth?” In my philosophy class, I remember my teacher saying that Jesus walked away from Pilate.

Of course, He didn’t walk away; He didn’t answer. He just stood there. Why didn’t He answer? But He did… by just standing there.

Truth is not an explanation, a bunch of words, or an idea. Truth is reality. Truth is Him. To speak words would have only taken away. Truth is not summed up in something He said.

Even as believers we often miss the truth, mistaking it for words, doctrines and songs. These may all be good – but are still not Him.

When Jesus was asked, “What is truth,” He just stood there, silently. As believers we are often like Pilate, missing the truth standing right there in our midst.

So it is written, “Be still and know that I am God.” Try being still. And come back to the truth – not something about the truth, but the truth itself, the truth Himself. And you’ll find Him standing there right next to you without words, the Truth and nothing but the Truth.

Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.  Psalm 46:10

Take time today to be still and keep being still until you can know the Lord’s presence in your midst – worship Him.

Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. John 17:17

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
