In this installment of our modern animated series, which features the brothers who founded Methodism, John and Charles Wesley explain God’s prevenient grace in laymen and feline terms.
We hope you will watch and share these clips, whether with your confirmation class, new member class, Sunday school group or in other settings. See more of the Wesleys Take the Web series.
JW: Here kitty kitty! Come thou long expected feline!
CW: Hey brother, have you started making cat videos to get more followers?
JW: Certainly not Charles! My plan is to bring this forlorn feline into a warm place. Just as God’s prevenient grace never gave up on me, I will not give up on—that creature!
CW: Ah, yes, God’s love that goes before us—like an enticing bowl of whatever that concoction is.
JW: Now, now, you are safe. When we repent & accept Christ, we experience justifying grace, or forgiveness, in the open arms of God.
CW: Salvation as quick as a jump through the door / Begins a pursuit of God’s grace to explore.
JW: Sanctifying grace is God’s gift of making us more holy like Christ, day after glorious day.
CW: Now that would make any cat want nine lives! End of this cat tale. Time to mouse on. Meow about that?!
JW: Oh, Charles!
