Truth - in pursuit of this noble virtue

"Seek the Truth, 
Listen to the Truth, 
Teach the Truth, 
Love the Truth, 
Abide by the Truth,
Defend the Truth,
And unto death."
  - John Hus (1370 - 1415)

These were not just nice words that John Hus made up one sunny morning. They were his Credo and passion. He lived, and ultimately died, defending the Truth of Jesus.

We will be confronted by many opportunities to 'bend' the Truth or to create a 'new version' of the Truth. In the end all of these options will take us away from Christ, who is TRUTH. The choice still lies with us, but it is worth heeding the words of Hus.

John 8:32 - "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

John 1:17 - "For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ."

Living in Grace
