MY BODY, MY BLOOD---FOR YOU
Jesse M. Hendley
Friends, if you have your Bibles, turn with me to Luke
22, verse 20. Today we are thinking about the Blood of
the Lord Jesus Christ. There is not a richer blessing
nor a more comforting Truth in all the Bible than
studying about the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. In
this message I cannot bring all that is found in the
Bible about that Blood, but we read here of Jesus

now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus."
Romans 8:l. And we "come not into Judgment but have
passed from death unto life." John 5:24. JESUS MADE
