Recovery of the Divine Likeness

John Wesley wrote a letter in 1734 which included, “I take religion to be, not the bare saying over of so many prayers morning and evening, in public or in private; not anything super added now and then to a careless or worldly life; but a constant ruling habit of the soul; a renewal of our minds in the image of God; a recovery of the divine likeness; a still increasing conformity of heart and life to the pattern of our Most Holy Redeemer.”
