Wesley way of life

METHODISTS need to consider the way Reverend John Wesley lived his life which was prioritising the saving of souls for the kingdom of God.

This was highlighted by church interim president Reverend Laisiasa Ratabacaca during the spiritual awakening commemoration celebration at the Centenary Church in Suva last week.

Mr Ratabacaca said the life Mr Wesley led was not an easy one, especially in making tremendous changes for the Methodist Church.

He said Mr Wesley was an educated man who was always busy trying to save people's souls and he steered the way for evangelism, especially through open-air preaching.

The church's communications secretary Reverend James Bhagwan said it was important that Methodists remembered the core of Mr Wesley's theology was the compassionate heart of God and the love of God.

Mr Bhagwan said theology was something Methodists needed to embody in their lives.

"The fact that our spiritual lives need to be uplifted is vital too," he said.

Church general secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra said Methodists needed to reflect on the impact of Mr Wesley's ministry.

"The Wesleyan traditions we celebrate as Methodists are not just song, preaching the word, and praying but also social action of solidarity and love with the least in our society," he said.
