Iain Murray on John Wesley

[T]he quest for felt Christian experience dominated his personal life. While he knew that love is not all feeling, he believed there is no true love without it, and in this sense feeling had the highest place in his aspirations: 'I see abundantly more than I feel. I want to feel more zeal and love for God.' 'I feel more want of heat than light. I value light; but it is nothing compared to love.'
--Iain Murray, Wesley and the Men Who Followed (Banner of Truth 2003), 100; italics original; quotations are of Wesley
