The Goodness And Severity Of God by Jesse Hendley

Jesse M. Hendley
Romans 11

Anyone who understands the Book of Romans will
certainly understand the Bible. Anyone who does not
will certainly go amiss on God's Plan. We learn the
great truth of GOD'S RIGHTEOUSNESS. We learn that the
person who puts his faith in Christ has his sin
question settled, and that there is no condemnation,
no judgment, nothing ahead but glory for the child of
God, so far as the salvation of his soul is concerned.
Now we come to the 11th chapter. It starts with a

although multitudes are going their own way, still God
has His own people who will not bow their knee to the
things of the world but love Him and put Him first in
their hearts.

Now the remnant is saved by the grace of God, not by
works. We are saved by the free favor of God, not by
works, or any vision we may see, or some great
experience, but by the GRACE of God. So, Paul says, if
it is BY GRACE, it is N ...
