 Description: There can be no doubt about what Jesus thought was "the main thing," the Great Commandments to love God with our heart, soul, and mind and to love neighbor as yourself. What were the non-negotiables for the founder of the Methodist movement, John Wesley? Wesley's first priority was to grow Christian disciples who loved God and neighbor with a holy love that keeps those Commandments.
As United Methodists what is our primary purpose? Put simply, it is to follow Christ as redeemed persons who put those Commandments into daily practice. Using John Wesley as guide, this book describes the ten most important United Methodist beliefs, so that we are equipped for every good work.
The book describes how a passionate Wesley can still inspire us to travel the road to perfection using these basic beliefs as signposts, not hitching posts, so that we can more fully follow Jesus. But discipleship can be arduous and God's grace is not cheap. We must be prepared to walk the walk and not just talk. The Christian life is action packed with surprises at every turn. "Are you able?" as the old hymn asks. Yes, Lord, we are able through the power and love of God to be accountable to Jesus and each other.
