Here are eight of the most inspiring John Wesley quotes.
I’ve been studying Wesley’s life for over 10 years now, and still find so much that inspires and challenges me in my life of discipleship and mission. Here are great quotes that cover his beliefs around prayer and the bible, his attitude to money, and his zeal for sharing the amazing news that God loves us.

“God does nothing but in answer to prayer.”
“O give me the Bible. At any price give me the book of God! I have it; here is knowledge enough for me. Let me be a man of one book.”
“Whenever I have money I give it away, lest it find a way into my heart.”
“I felt my heart strangely warmed. I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone for salvation.”
“I look upon the whole world as my parish.”
“Be ashamed of nothing but sin.”
“Give me 100 preachers who fear nothing but sin and love nothing but God, and I care not a straw whether they be clergy or lay people, such alone will shake the gates of hell and bring the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.”
“You have nothing to do but save souls. Therefore spend and be spent in this work.”
