Peace with God
Jesse M. Hendley
Now friends, if you have your Bibles, turn with me to one of the most wonderful Scriptures in the entire Bible. It's in Romans 6 and verse 7. I know it will be a blessing to your heart as it has been to mine. I'm planning to go to heaven on it, because it's the Word of God and God means what He says.
