Solitude Sermon Illustrations

One of the most impressive things in the eighty-eight years of John Wesley's long life was when he was taken with his last illness. He returned from the house of a friend, where he had preached his last sermon on the text, "Seek ye the Lord while he may be found" (Isa. 55:6). His friends and housekeeper carrictl him up to his chambers adjoining the City Road Chapel. Realizing that his end was not far off, the aged saint desired all his friends and his servants to leave him for one half hour by himself. Obedient to his desire, they all went out and left him; and there John Wesley met his God alone, reviewed the incidents of his long life, and prepared for death.
