Strangely Warmed...

On this date in 1738 (May 24) John Wesley wrote in his journal, "In the evening I went very unwillingly to a society, where one was reading Luther's preface to the Epistle to the Romans. About a quarter before nine, while he was describing the change which God works in the heart through faith in Christ, I felt my heart strangely warmed. I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone, for salvation: and an assurance was given me, that he had taken away my sins, even mine, and saved me from the law of sin and death."

His heart was "strangely warmed" and God used him to set England and America on fire and today through the message Wesley preached and God blessed, hearts are continuing to be "warmed."
