I found a great video clip that tells the story of Francis Asbury. Asbury was an early Methodist leader in the colonies, sent by Wesley himself, and ultimately responsible for the explosive growth of early Methodism. His sacrifice and zeal for reaching people with the good news of Jesus serves as an example for all of us still. Whenever I am reminded of his story as this video does, I am inspired to “never be lacking in zeal (Ro. 12:11)” but always have a vision for what God wants to do in this world. It is no wonder that so many things in our country have his name. I only pray that we would first and foremost revere his God.
