THE WONDERFUL BLESSINGS WE GET, NOW AND FOREVER, "IN
Jesse M. Hendley
Will you turn with me now, friends, to Romans 8 and
verse 1, as we are taking up the study today of the
marvelous expression, "In Christ Jesus." We found out
a wonderful, wonderful truth. I do not apologize for
staying with this for a moment, because we need to see
it. There cannot be any happiness and peace without
knowing, first of all, that the sin-question is

brought up any sin against me then, and if I were to
die today, God will never bring up a single sin
