The Old Rugged Cross:
"In the eyes of the church establishment, Hus had committed heresy.
He believed that everyone should be allowed to read the Bible in
their own language -- an unthinkable notion.... He also opposed
the pope's money-raising efforts to sell indulgences (the false
assurance that people could buy or earn pardon for sin instead of
trusting in Christ's redemption through the cross).
"Hus was 'tried' and found guilty. When asked to recant, he refused.
Instead he knelt and prayed that God would forgive his accusers.
Mocked and humiliated, he was led naked to the stake, where executioners
covered him with wood and straw for the torturous fire. Given a
last chance to recant, he answered, 'In the truth of the Gospel
which I have written, taught, and preached I will die today with
gladness.' Then the fire was lit using pages from the forbidden
Bible printed by John Wycliffe as kindling.
"Enveloped in flames, Hus kept singing an old hymn, 'Christ, thou
Son of the living God, have mercy upon me.' He died praising the
Lord He loved!"
Outside the Camp
(Spurgeon): "JESUS, bearing His cross, went forth to suffer outside
the gate. The Christian’s reason for leaving the camp of the world’s
sin and religion is... because Jesus did so; and the disciple must
follow his Master. Christ was 'not of the world.' His life and His
testimony were a constant protest against conformity with the world.
Never was such overflowing affection for men as you find in Him;
but still He was separate from sinners. In like manner Christ’s
people must 'go out to Him.' They must take their position 'outside
the camp,' as witness-bearers for the truth."
He's My King: Do You Know Him?
"David said, 'The Heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows His
handiwork.... "Well, my King....is the wellspring to wisdom.... He's the
pathway of peace.... He's the gateway of glory.... Do you know

Crucifixion by consensus:
"But Pilate answered them, saying, 'Do you want me to release to you the King
of the Jews?' For he knew that the chief priests had handed Him over because
of envy. But the chief priests stirred up the crowd, so that he should
rather release Barabbas to them.
answered and said to them again, 'What then do you want me to do with Him whom
you call the King of the Jews?' So they cried out again, 'Crucify Him!'
Then Pilate said to them, 'Why, what evil has He done?' But they cried out
all the more, 'Crucify Him!'"
He lives, I can face tomorrow
He lives, all fear is gone.
I know He holds the future,
life is worth the living, just because He lives!
