Methodism—-“And are we yet alive ?”

“I am not afraid that the people called Methodists should ever cease to exist either in Europe or America. But I am afraid lest they should only exist as a dead sect, having the form of religion without the power. And this undoubtedly will be the case unless they hold fast both the doctrine, spirit, and discipline with which they first set out.” 
John Wesley 1786

This is one of my favourite quotes and it always challenges me.

Have we become little more than a self-perpetuating structure, seeking ways to simply keeping the organisation going, rather than seeking to build the Kingdom of Jesus ?

Lord, forgive us and reignite the fire in our bellies.

Lord, forgive us and reignite the fire within our bellies.
