The Reality Of Temptation And Sin by Jesse Hendley

THE REALITY OF TEMPTATION AND SIN
Jesse M. Hendley
James 1:12-18

We are taking up a portion of the Book of James today,
chapter 1, verses 12 to 18, and we are studying the reality
of temptation and sin. It is an important study, and I hope
it will be a real blessing to our hearts. I know it will if
we take it in! For God's Word is all profitable, and as we

the Lord Jesus as your Saviour and are filled with the
spirit of God, for up until that time the devil has been
more or less inactive toward you, has been asleep regarding
you, for why should he worry about someone who is in his
hand thoroughly and completely? The devil is out to bring
souls to ETERNAL RUIN, and the way he does it is by KEEPING
