No Partition Wall For Whitefield

*Pastor’s Note: When I was searching for illustrations for this Food For Thought, I came across this illustration concerning one of my favorite classic Preachers, George Whitefield. I had to add it here for the same principle abides in my heart and has for a long time.

The year of 1730, a notable one for American Christianity, witnessed the arrival of 26-year-old George Whitefield, already famous for his evangelical preaching in England. Whitefield, a Church of England priest, welcomed as co-laborers Baptists, Presbyterians, Quakers, Lutherans, Congregationalists, Dutch Reformed, and anyone else who preached individual conversion. As he crossed the Atlantic, he wrote to a clergyman friend in England: “The partition wall has for some time been broken down out of my heart, and I can truly say whoever loves the Lord Jesus, “the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.””
