What John Wesley says about church growth

JOHN WESLEY MOMENTS
At one point, John Wesley became concerned about Methodist Societies that failed to grow. One suggestion he made concerning this issue you might take to heart. He said the reason they have dropped off is because they have given up early morning worship services. He urges us to have worship every morning at 5 a.m. He said those societies which fail to worship at “first light” will certainly see no growth.
How many of us would take this advice to heart if we really believed our churches would grow if we worshipped every morning at 5 a.m.? Would you be willing to arise at that time to pray for revival?
This has been a John Wesley Moment.
