Specific Topic
Reading Level: Intermediate
Wesley thought he was a Christian, until God showed him that knowing God is more than knowing the Bible or being a moral person. To have true faith in Jesus Christ begins with the miracle of conversion God does in our hearts. This may be one of the most valuable lessons from Wesley's life.
