THE CHRISTIAN'S DAY OF REAPING
Jesse M. Hendley
II Corinthians 9:6-11
The other day on a trip by air I had a couple of
hours, and I analyzed one of the great chapters of the
Bible and one of the most important---Second
Corinthians, the 9th chapter---and I want to speak to
you now on "The Christian's Day of Reaping."
