Above all, stand fast in obedient faith,
faith in the God of pardoning mercy,
in the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who hath loved you, and given himself for you.
Ascribe to him all the good you find in yourself,
all your peace, and joy, and love,
all your power to do and suffer his will,
through the Spirit of the living God.v.v.
Abhor every approach, in any kind or degree.
to the spirit of persecution.
If you cannot reason or persuade a man into the truth,
never attempt to force him into it.
If love will not compel him to come in,
leave him to God.
-- John Wesley
