John Wesley was a circuit preacher, so he depended on his horse a lot. He would ride somewhere to preach.
Wesley writes in journal:
...my horse was so exceedingly lame that I was afraid I must have lain by too. We could not discern what it was that was amiss; and yet he would scarcely set his foot to the ground. By riding thus seven miles, I was thoroughly tired, and my head ached more than it had done for some months.
Then I thought, “Cannot God heal either man
Our own fame however small is in vain ... Keep a low profile there is the gain ... Jesus did not seek his own fame ... The message still goes out there's no strain ...
Proverbs 25:27. It is not good to eat much honey: so for men to search their own glory is not glory.

And now, apropos the first resurrection: it seems that it might be useful to review the impact of the phrase “abolished death” in II Tim. 1:10 (see the text in underlined bold below):
II Tim. 1
8 Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord or of me His prisoner, but join with me in suffering for the gospel according to the power of God,
9 who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own
