John Wesley (Christian Heroes: Then & Now)

51gdofumxdl-_sx324_bo1204203200_John Wesley: The World His Parish – Pursuing his calling with singleness of vision, John Wesley defied the strength of angry mobs and longwithstanding traditions to offer the hope of Christ to millions of people who were outside the influence of the churches of the day.

Passionate and tireless, this Anglican clergyman rode a quarter of a million miles on horseback during his lifetime, stopping to preach more than forty thousand sermons in open fields, churches, and barns.

Focused on God’s love and holy living, the movement Wesley founded quickly multiplied in vibrant Methodist societies all over England and would soon influence far-flung nations for Christ.

  1. Reading the biography of John Wesley, I am challenged by how he worked hard til the very end (87 years old)! It serves as an inspiring example to calibrate my own expectation and frustration when things become difficult.

  2. “Preach faith till you have it; and then, because you have it, you will preach faith.” John Wesley isn’t someone born on preacher island but he struggled with what he believed and this was something someone told him when he was struggling with his belief. I was so struck by this and at times when feeling doubts, just want to reason to stop doing anything least it not be genuine, but I see how preaching truth and faith will cultivate it in a person. As I read how John Wesley desired God, I see how he really struggled and worked hard to understand God’s heart and then to share with those around him and more. He is an amazing man!
