When Jesus had come into the temple area, the chief priests and the elders of the people approached him as he was teaching and said, “By what authority are you doing
these things? And who gave you this authority?” Mt 21:23-27
When someone who is against you asks you a question, they really don’t want an answer. Because any answer you give, especially one in defense of yourself or your stand will, in their ears, be wrong or just not heard by them. Jesus knew this fact. So whenever He was asked a question by his adversaries, He responded with a question back. And usually their own answer would backfire on themselves because there is only ONE TRUTH.
Jesus IS that Truth!
So don’t let your adversaries ever feel they have the upper hand, beloved, when you hold the Truth of Jesus. The Holy Spirit will guide you to the answer that will always lead to Jesus. And sometimes silence is just as good an answer as any words can impress.
Always hold on to the Truth of Jesus!
