CQOD: 08/12/05 -- Owen: truth and holiness
Christian Quotation of the DayAugust 12, 2005
Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.
-- 2 Cor. 7:1 (NIV)
Sometimes truth is lost first in a church, and then holiness, and sometimes the decay or hatred of holiness is the cause of the loss of truth. But if either is rejected, the other will not abide.
... John Owen (1616-1683)
Quiet time reflection:
Show me what I must do to live out truth and holiness before my church.
