THE GLORY OF CHRISTIAN SERVICE
Jesse M. Hendley
For our message for today, I would like for you to
turn to Romans 10:14 and 15, and we want to think

the privilege of being God's instruments in bringing
His Truth to all men. That is the summation of a great
man about the Gospel of the Lord Jesus and the
