SERMONS OF JOHN WESLEY

SALVATION BY FAITH

June 18, 1738

ALL the blessings which God hath bestowed upon man, are of his mere grace, bounty, or favor; his free, undeserved favor; favor altogether undeserved; man having no claim to the least of his mercies. It was free grace that “formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into him a living soul,” and stamped on that soul the image of God, and “put all things under his feet.” The same free grace continues to us, at this day, life, and breath, and all things. For there is nothing we are, or have, or do, which can deserve the least thing at God’s hand. “All our works, thou, O God! hast wrought in us These, therefore, are so many more instances of free mercy: And whatever righteousness may be found in man, this is also the gift of God.

THE ALMOST CHRISTIAN

July 25, 1741

AND many there are who go thus far: Ever since the Christian religion was in the world, there have been many, in every age and nation, who were almost persuaded to be Christians. But seeing it avails nothing before God to go only thus far, it highly imports us to consider, First. What is implied in being almost, Secondly. What in being altogether, a Christian.
