THE INDWELLING CHRIST
Sermon By Dr. Jesse M. Hendley
October 11, 1907---November 30, 1994
I want to speak to you on "The Indwelling Christ." He

IN ME!" Christ lives in the depth of my soul, in the

speaking His words through my lips, hearing through my
ears, seeing through my eyes, moving through my hands
and feet. Christ lives in me. That little Gospel
chorus means what it says, and that is what Christ
should mean to every believer, to everyone that loves

wonder if He does?
Then look at Rev. 3 ...
