Take my poor heart, and let it be, Forever closed to all but thee; Seal thou my breast, and let me wear, That pledge of love forever there. Amen (A prayer of John Wesley)

Romans 4:3-5, 5:1-2 New Revised Standard Version
3 For what does the scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness.”
4 Now to one who works, wages are not reckoned as a gift but as something due.
5 But to one who without works trusts him who justifies the ungodly, such faith is reckoned as righteousness.
1 Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
2 through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand, and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God.
After years of spiritual searching & trying to serve as a missionary (in which he failed), John said, “My chief motive to which all the rest are subordinate, is hope of saving my own soul…” John attended a small group of faithful Christians & felt his “heart strangely warmed. I felt that I did trust in Christ & Christ alone for my salvation & an assurance was given to me that he had taken away my sins, even mine.” He felt he met God personally for the first time. He met the life-changing power of God & experienced conversion.
