John Wesley: Living Life Expectantly

Nor yet do you say, “I must do something more before I come to Christ.” I grant, supposing thy Lord should delay his coming, it were meet and right to wait for his appearing, in doing, so far as you have the power, whatsoever he has commanded you. But there is no necessity for making such a supposition. How do you know that he will delay? Perhaps he will appear, as the day-spring from on high, before the morning light. Oh do not set him a time! Expect him every hour. Now he is nigh! Even at the door!
