GOD'S MIGHTY CARE FOR HIS OWN
Jesse M. Hendley
Friends, if you have your Bibles now, turn with me,
please, to Psalm 121. We are going to speak today to
the people of God on the subject, "God's Mighty Care
For His Own." Now by "His Own" I mean those who really
love Him, those who are saved, those who are really
the people of God, and I am dedicating this broadcast
of COMFORT, God's mighty CARE, to the sick friends and
the shut-in friends and to every CHRISTIAN who listens
to this broadcast and who loves the Lord. I do not
mean we are not interested in you friends who are not
saved, but I hope that you will see WHAT YOU ARE

believer. And believing people, who love the LORD, are
not going to Hell. So you have no right to apply that
which is written to the unsaved, to yourself.
The opposite also is true. What is written to the
saved is never to be applied to the unsaved. Sometimes
at funeral services pastors read, for instance, John
14. "Let not your heart be troubled." Unsaved people
sit out there and ...
