Catch Fire! by John Wesley

December 18, 2007

* I’m not using this to promote any denomination, I just believe this will Bless you!

I found this “very” interesting tidbit in Wikipedia:

Today, many follow Wesley’s teachings. He continues to be the primary theological interpreter for Methodists the world over; the largest Wesleyan bodies being the United Methodist Church, the Methodist Church of Great Britain and the Wesleyan Church. The teachings of Wesley also served as a basis for the Holiness movement, from which Pentecostalism, parts of the Charismatic movement, the Church of the Nazarene and the Christian and Missionary Alliance are offshoots. Wesley’s call to personal and social holiness continues to challenge Christians who struggle to discern what it means to participate in the Kingdom of God.

“Catch on fire with enthusiasm and people will come for miles to watch you burn.”

“Do all the good you can, By all the means you can, In all the ways you can, In all the places you can, At all the times you can, To all the people you can, As long as ever you can.”

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

“My ground is the Bible. Yea, I am a Bible-bigot. I follow it in all things, both great and small.”

“I look on all the world as my parish; thus far I mean, that, in whatever part of it I am, I judge it meet, right, and my bounden duty, to declare unto all that are willing to hear, the glad tidings of salvation.”

“You have nothing to do but to save souls; therefore spend and be spent in this work.”
