JC Ryle writes:

"Whitefield, Wesley, and Rowlands taught constantly the inseparable connectionb etween true faith and personal holiness. They never allowed for a moment that any church membership or religious profession was teh proof of a man's being a true Christian if he lived an ungodly life. A true Christian, they maintained, must always be known by his fruits; and those fruits must be plainly manifest and unmistakable in all relations of life. 'No fruits, no grace,' was the unvarying tenor of their preaching" (JC Ryle, Christian Leaders of the Eighteenth Century, 28).

Excellent and true!
