John Wesley's Heart for His People

You ask, what I would do with them: I would make them virtuous and happy, easy in themselves and useful to others.

Whither would I lead them? To heaven; to God the Judge, the lover of all, and to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant.

What religion do I preach? The religion of love; the law of kindness brought to light by the Gospel.

What is this good for? To make all who receive it enjoy God and themselves: to make them like God; lovers of all; contented in their lives; and crying out at their death, in calm assurance, “O grave, where is they victory! Thanks be unto God, who giveth me the victory through my Lord Jesus Christ.”
Amen and Amen!
