At any price, give me the Book of God!

Let John Wesley’s enthusiasm for encountering God in His Word infect you at the beginning of a new work-week:

“At any price give me the book of God! I have it! Here is knowledge enough for me. Let me be a ‘man of one Book.’ Here then I am, far from the busy ways of men. I sit down alone; only God is here. In his presence I open, I read his book; for this end, to the way to heaven . . . I meditate thereon with all the attention and earnestness of which my mind is capable.”

Cited in Evangelical Spirituality, James M. Gordon (Eugene, OR: Wipf & Stock, 1991), 36.
