John Nelson preaching about the influence of John Wesley’s preaching and its effects upon him, said:

"This man can tell the secrets of my heart, but he hath not left me there, he hath showed me the remedy, even the blood of Christ. Then was my soul filled with consolation, through hope that God for Christ’s sake would save me.

"That is the experience wherever Christ and Him crucified is proclaimed. We must tell of sin, but also of the sacrifice that atones for it; of guilt, but also of grace that pardons; show man’s depravity but God’s redeeming mercy. Not half a gospel, but a whole one."
