I CAN'T KEEP A SECRET (13 of 36)
Jerry Vines
Ephesians 3:1-13

Janet and I have five grandchildren—four girls and one
boy. I don't talk about my family a whole lot in the
pulpit because I know you are as proud of your family
and I am of mine and you don't have the opportunity to
get up here like I do. So I try not to spend a lot of
time talking about family, but occasionally there are

they are, it's a secret. He said, "Would you like to
be in the club?" I said, "Oh, I really would." In
order to be in the club I had to know the secret
password. He gave me the secret password, but I can't
pass it on to you because it's a secret.

I try real hard to keep secrets, but to be perfectly
