I want to burn

well, after spending time laboring over the last two posts, with little response (though I know people are reading, since my blog stats tell me so…), this time I’m just going to post some great quotes I copied and from someone elses site….

 these are the words of John Wesley; a great man of faith from the early days of our nation… and lest we think his words would be “out of date”, I find myself STIRRED today, reading them… oh, to be more like this . . .  (we’ll see if these generate any feedback) 🙂 

” 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”

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

” When I have money, I get rid of it quickly, lest it find a way into my heart.”

” When I was young I was sure of everything; in a few years, having been mistaken a thousand times, I was not half so sure of most things as I was before; at present, I am hardly sure of anything but what God has revealed to me”

“Once in seven years I burn all my sermons; for it is a shame, if I cannot write better sermons now than I did seven years ago.”“Give me 100 men (or women* [my addition]) who hate evil and love good, and I care not one whit whether they are clergy or laity, with these men I will change the world and usher in the kingdom of God in one generation.”

“Mr. Wesley with so much to do in a day how is it that you can find time to pray four hours a day? Wesley response, “With so much to do in a day how can I not pray four hours a day?”

One thought on “I want to burn

  1. Yes! Wesley! On May 24th, 1738, Wesley had a turning point as he listened to a man “describing the change which God works in the heart through faith in Christ, I felt my heart strangely warmed. I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone for salvation; and an assurance was given me that He had taken away my sins, even mine, and saved me from the law of sin and death.”
