John Wesley my invitational hero
I love the story of John Wesley who changed the perspective of what others thought was not possible. More specifically he did something that completely changed the way the discipleship could be done in his generation… this change unlocked a new vision, a new image for others. He was able to see what others couldn’t see… He was able to trust that vision… to go and make disciples was for him in his generation. That being said, the reason that this story stays present with me is because he really had to work for it… along his path of excellence, he experienced many personal struggles … and in the face of each of them, he was able to anchor his inner belief in his God, and truly become absorbed in the day-to-day pursuit of following his LORD. This has shaped how I understand the exploration of what God wants to do with an individual… and the courage it takes to follow that calling.
