The Greatest Characteristic Of A Christian Life by Jesse Hendley

Jesse M. Hendley
I Corinthians 13

One of the characteristics of the Christian life is
LOVE. We do not mean something sentimental. This is
the love of a Christian for GOD and CHRIST and the
SOULS OF MEN. I pray that the Lord will speak to all
our hearts as we read now from First Corinthians 13.

"If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and
have not love, I am become as sounding brass or a
tinkling cymbal. And although I have the gift of
prophecy, and understand all knowledge; and though I
