    John Wesley on:    

We should be continually labouring to cut off all the useless things that surround us; and God usually retrenches the superfluities of our souls in the same proportion as we do those of our bodies.

    Topics: Self-denial

Do all the good you can by all the means 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.

    Topics: Service

Though I am always in a haste, I am never in a hurry, because I never undertake more work than I can go through with perfect calmness of spirit.

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.

One of the principal rules of religion is, to lose no occasion of serving God. And, since he is invisible to our eyes, we are to serve him in our neighbour; which he receives as if done to himself in person, standing visibly before us.

And indeed, there is no little sin, because there is no little God to sin against. In general, what to (humans) seems a small offense, to Him who knows the heart may appear a heinous crime.

    Topics: Sin
    Source: Wesley's Notes on the Bible, 1 Sam. 13:14.

Give me 100 men who hate nothing but sin and love God with all their hearts and I will shake the world for Christ!

    Topics: Sin

It is hardly credible of how great consequence before God the smallest things are; and what great inconveniences some times follow those which appear to be light faults. As a very little dust will disorder a clock, and the least sand will obscure our sight, so the least grain of sin which is upon the heart will hinder its right motion towards God.

    Topics: Sin

The person who bears and suffers evils with meekness and silence, is the sum of a Christian man.

    Topics: Suffering, Christians, Meekness

The readiest way to escape from our sufferings is, to be willing they should endure as long as God pleases.

    Topics: Suffering, Endurance
