The Right Fear, the Right Desire

Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not a straw whether they be clergy or laymen, such alone will shake the gates of hell, and set up the kingdom of heaven upon earth.

--John Wesley, quoted in Iain Murray, Wesley and the Men Who Followed (Banner of Truth 2003), 87
