John Wesley: Lively Sermon

While preaching a sermon one day, John Wesley was dismayed to find that several members of his congregation had fallen asleep. "Fire! Fire!" he suddenly cried, whereupon the guilty parishioners jumped up with alarm.

"Where?" they demanded, glancing around. "In hell," Wesley replied, "for those who sleep under the preaching of the Word!"

[John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, preached an incredible 40,000 sermons.]
