New Class--John Wesley

Help me, Lord, to remember that faith is not to be confined to the church or closet, nor exercised only in prayer and meditation, but that everywhere I am in your presence. So may my every word and action have moral content.
.— Susanna Wesley

Just a note to say that I am currently enrolled in another on-line class and I am loving it.  The class is, “Wesleyan Tradition in Context.”  Thus far in the class we are looking at the life, theology and ministry of John Wesley, an Anglican minister and Christian theologian who lived during the 1700’s.Wesley1

Wesley is a fascinating man of God who lived a life of holiness that was realized in his love for the Lord and his love for others.

The above quote is from his mother, Susanna Wesley, who had a profound effect on his life, character and faith.

The following are some of my favorite John Wesley quotes:

“Every one, though born of God in an instant, yet undoubtedly grows by slow degrees”

"Make all you can, save all you can, give all you can”

"Do all the good you can, in all the ways you can, to all the souls you can, in every place you can, at all the times you can, with all the zeal you can, as long as ever you can”

"The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.”
