It’s Free Friday and today’s featured free download is A Plain Account of Christian Perfection by John Wesley.
“Now let this perfection appear in its native form, and who can speak one word against it? Will any dare to speak against loving the Lord our God with all our heart, and our neighbor as ourselves? Against a renewal of heart, not only in part, but in the whole image of God? Who is he that will open his mouth against being cleansed from all pollution both of flesh and spirit; or against having all the mind that was in Christ, and walking in all things as Christ walked? What man, who calls himself a Christian, has the hardiness to object to the devoting, not a part, but all our soul, body, and substance to God?”
None of Wesley’s statements on holiness is more comprehensive and representative than what he penned in A Plain Account of Christian Perfection in 1777. Wesley’s call to love God with all of our being rings true more than two centuries later.
John Wesley (1703-1791) was an eighteenth-century century Anglican evangelist and founder of the Wesleyan Tradition. He is also credited as the founder of the Methodist church.
