Quote of the Day

“Make me what Thou wilt, Lord, and set me where Thou wilt. Let me be a vessel of silver or gold, or a vessel of wood or stone; so I be a vessel of honor. I am content. If I be not the head, or the eye, or the ear, one of the nobler and more honorable instruments Thou wilt employ, let me be the hand, or the foot, as one of the lowest and least esteemed of all the servants of my Lord.”

John Wesley, eighteenth-century theologian and father of the Methodist movement, in his “Covenant Service: For Those Who Would Make or Renew Their Covenant with God, 1780” as printed in Ken Bible, ed., Wesley Hymns (Lilenas Publishing Co., 1982). Wesley’s theology of holiness would have a major impact on the Brethren in Christ Church.
