A Holiness Revival!
– Andrew Murray
A holiness revival! What was the great evangelistic revival in England through
Whitefield and Wesley but this? They had together at Oxford been members of the "Holy
Club". With their whole heart they had sought deliverance from the guilt
of sin, but also from the power of sin. When their eyes were opened to see how
faith can claim the whole Christ in all fullness, they found the key to the
preaching which was so mightily effectual for the salvation of men. What John Wesley
did for the Methodism, General Booth, and his disciple, did for the Salvation
Army. Looking at the material on which he had to work, it was amazing how, with
his teaching of the clean heart and full salvation, he was able to inspire tens
of thousands with a true devotion to Christ and the lost. There may be great
differences of doctrine, but no one can be blind to the seal God has set upon
the intense desire to preach a full salvation and an entire consecration.
