Ordinary Time: Monday, July 17, 2006

Sorry this is late and short. My daughter, because she loves me, has decided to share her cold with. We are a very caring family.

"You have nothing to do but to save souls; therefore spend and be spent in this work."

John Wesley

This was Wesley instructed his preachers to be about. The only job in life was to see the lost come to salvation. That makes good sense, because that's what we preachers are supposed to be about, right? One additional note. Most of Wesley's preachers were lay folks; they had jobs and families and were not in the "full time" ministry. He tells them, yes, there are things you are supposed to be about, but your job is to see souls saves.

Friends, if you are a Christian, then today, that is your most important task. Yes, we have other responsibilities and concerns, but our life's work is supposed to be about seeing the lost come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
