    This thesis aims to establish that eschatological living in Wesley's thoughts is a lifestyle which takes peaceful relationship with the triune God as its foundational basis and ultimate End. At the same time, it receives the Kingdom of Grace and the future Kingdom of Glory as its eschatological-teleological vision. This End and vision in turn shape our eschatological pilgrimage between the Kingdom of Grace and the Kingdom of Glory.

    Eschatological living begins as a new creation in God's justifying grace and continues until we are perfected in God's sanctifying grace. It is a development of faith in God's grace with our responsible participation till we are made glorious in the new heaven and new earth.

    It is an effort to live out the beauty of the Kingdom's values through responsible stewardship, through our love for God, love for our neighbours and other God's creatures in our social context.
