John Wesley – Founder of Methodist Movement
One of finest Persons, out of 600 sermons he preached only six preached in the Church, Rest most of all done on streets, etc.
“John [Wesley] died in 1791. Converted at 35, turn that round it makes 53, add them together it makes 88. Because he was saved at 35, preached for 53 years, and you know what he left when he died? He left a hand full of books, a sacred Geneva gown that he preached in all over England, six silver spoons somebody gave him, six pound notes to “give to each of the poor men that carry me to my grave” and that’s all that he left. Six pound notes, six silver spoons, a hand full of books,a Geneva gown and ah, there’s something else. What was it, the other thing? Oh, I know something else he left, the Methodist Church.” Leonard Ravenhill
