I want to offer a challenge/bit of encouragement to my brothers and sisters in the Methodist/Wesleyan family.
Along with your various resolutions about calorie intake and exercise and starting a new hobby, make this promise to yourself. Read one of John Wesley’s sermons each week and think about the ways it does or does not speak to you today. At one sermon per week, that’s the first 52, which depending on which list you use is almost the entire set of “standard” sermons. You can read the funeral sermon for George Whitefield on New Year’s Day 2013 to close out the list.
If you don’t own a copy of the sermons in book form, here’s a link to the sermons by number.
First up, Sermon 1 “Salvation by Faith.”
