Capsule for the Day
We live in a very noisy world. A world with many competing voices, all talking over the top of each other. The voices are so loud that we often can't hear the Word. There is power in the voices, it is the strength of numbers. They have the vote; but there is a deep concern... do they have the truth?
Truth! What is it? Even Pilate asked Jesus the same question in the midst of the competing voices that voted for His crucifixion. What is truth? The answer was Silence. For the Word spoke in the Silence of the Son of Man; revealing the Truth as that which is, and is to come – Jesus the Christ.
He is the Truth that speaks in the heart of the noisy world, and urges us to return to Him who is our Creator and Redeemer. For in Him we live and move and have our being. There is no life without Him. For He is Life. Thus, to live life to the full is to come to the Truth and bow before Him in worship.
