CHRIST'S BLOOD AS A PROPITIATORY SACRIFICE
Jesse M. Hendley
I John 1:7
In First John 1:7 w read, "If we walk in the light as
He is in the light we have fellowship one with another
and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us
from all sin." As we walk in the light of God's Word,
as we walk in prayer and the Bible from day to day,

for that. We don't have to beg and beg for
forgiveness; God forgives us immediately when we

I'm not walking with the Lord as I used to." She was
very frank to say that she had drifted from the Lord,
had lost her joy and victory in Him and the blessing
God had for her.
She made this statement, "I can't live for the Lord in

ANYWHERE when you make up your mind to do it. Daniel
