The Silent Truth

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

In John 18, Messiah is standing before Pontius Pilate on trial for His life. Pilate asks Him, “What is truth?” It’s a question man has been asking from the beginning. What was the Lord’s response? As far as the Scriptures are concerned, He never said anything. Why didn’t He answer Pilate? He did, but not with words. Messiah is the truth. If He said something at that point, He would be speaking about the truth. But about the truth isn’t the same as truth itself. What is the truth? Not merely the words of Messiah, but Messiah Himself, standing right there, before Pilate’s eyes without words. Learn this profound truth. You need to tell your loved ones and the world the truth. But more than telling them about the truth, you need to show them the truth. Don’t just talk about God’s love, show them God’s love. Because people can argue with the words of Messiah, but it’s very hard to argue with His presence standing there right before their eyes.

Today’s Mission – Don’t just talk about God’s love today, show it.

Reverent and sweet submission

“I was silent; I would not open my mouth, for You are the one who has done this!” Psalm 39:9

He is not worthy to pass for a child of God, who does not receive His stripes with reverent meekness. Tears may be allowed–but a murmuring frown is no better than rebellion.

Let infidels, then, and ignorants, who think they suffer by chance–repine at their adversities, and be dejected with their afflictions.

For me, who knows that I have a Father in Heaven who is full of mercy and compassion, whose providence has measured out the due proportions of my sorrows, counting my sighs, and reserving the tears which He wrings from me, in His bottle–why do I not patiently lie down and put my mouth in the dust, meekly submitting to His holy pleasure, and blessing the hand from which I smart?

“You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in Your bottle. You have recorded each one in Your book!” Psalm 56:8
