John Wesley’s two-day experiment



John Wesley tried a two-day experiment in sharing his faith. He decided that for two days he would only speak to others about godly things if the Holy Spirit directly prompted him to do so.

At the end of this two-day experiment he concluded: 1) That he spoke to none at all, even when he rode many miles with them in a coach except for a few words when setting out. 2) That he had no cross to bear and soon went to sleep. 3) That he had much respect shown to him and that everyone though he was a civil, good-natured gentleman.

He decided that he should at all times be a verbal witness for Christ whether he felt like it or not.

John Wesley would encourage us to go and do likewise.
