Eternal Life by Jesse Hendley

ETERNAL LIFE
Jesse M. Hendley
Romans 6:16-23

Turn with me to your Bibles---of course you brought
a Bible. You wouldn't walk in a Colonial Hills
Church without a Bible. That just isn't done. That's
like going to a formal wedding without a formal
outfit. Just to check up to see if my sheep have
been wandering while I've been away, how many Bibles
are here this morning? That looks good. We love the
old Book in this place and we want to keep it that
way. I think that in our next Bible Conference we'll

there are a few people who do delight in the Word of
God.

love the Word, you have to get rid of everything
wrong in your life, things that the Old Book
condemns. Let us not be content until we can say
from the depth of our souls, "I know I love the
Bible. I love God's Word."

Let us turn to Romans, the sixth chapter, and begin
with verse 16, and I'll read to verse 23. "Know ye
