“John Wesley was once asked, ‘If you knew that you would die at twelve o’clock tomorrow night, how would you spend the intervening time?’ ‘Why,’ was the answer, ‘just as I intend to spend it.  I would preach tonight in Gloucester and again tomorrow morning.  After that I would ride to Tewksbury, preach in the afternoon and meet the society in the evening.  I should then repair to friend Martin’s house, as he expects me; converse, pray with the family, retire to my room at ten o’clock, commend myself to my Heavenly Father, lie down to sleep, and wake up in glory.'”
