Three Principles


Written by John Wesley (1703-1791), an English cleric, theologian, and evangelist. He led a revival movement within the Church of England known as Methodism. This is an excerpt from “The Classics of Western Spirituality” series.

Get these three Principles fixed in your hearts: that Things eternal are much more considerable than Things temporal; that Things not seen are as certain as the Things that are seen; that upon your present choice depends your eternal lot. Choose Christ and his ways, and you are blessed forever; refuse, and you are undone forever.


From the Gregorian Sacramentary, a 10th century illuminated Latin manuscript ascribed to Gregory 1.

O God, the Protector of all that trust in You, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy, increase and multiply upon us Your mercy; that, You being our Ruler and Guide, we may so pass through things temporal that we finally lose not the things eternal. Grant this, O heavenly Father, for Jesus Christ’s sake our Lord. Amen.
