  1. “A Methodist (Christian) is one who loves the Lord his God with all his heart, with all his soul, with all his mind, and with all his strength. God is the joy of his heart, and the desire of his soul, which is continually crying, ‘Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth whom I desire besides thee.’ My God and my all! ‘Thou art the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.’ He is therefore happy in God; yea, always happy, as having in him a well of water springing up unto everlasting life, and over-flowing his soul with peace and joy. Perfect love living now cast out fear, he rejoices evermore. Yea, his joy is full, and all his bones cry out, ‘Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who, according to his abundant mercy, hath begotten me again unto a living hope of an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled, reserved in heaven for me.” – John Wesley

    I’ve never met anyone like that. or heard of anyone like that.

  2. I can’t help but notice that for someone who penned such a wonderful paragraph about having joy in the Lord, John Wesley’s portrait makes him out to be quite a sourpuss.

    1. The concept of smiling for portraits is a relatively new one. Back in the day, there were no cameras to freeze a moment in time. The subject of the portrait had to sit still in a pose for hours on end while the painter painted. No one could hold a smile for that long without moving. hence, all normal portraits of that era tend to have a “serious” nature about them.
