Looking For Warm Hearts

John Wesley’s journal – May 24th 1738

In the evening I went very unwillingly to a society in Aldersgate Street, 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.

I like ‘warm hearts’…

Amie Ogilvie’s Facebook – March 3rd 2023 – about our local Greggs in Pakefield:

…We turned up at prearranged time to collect an order and there had been a bit of a mix up due to manufacturing issues. My son (7) is autistic and the order was for his last day in mainstream so he was excited to take all his friends in treats.

The manager sensed the sudden change in my sons face and body language when he realised it wasn’t going to plan and gave him his hat and badge to wear to be manager of Greggs, allowed him to go round and choose what he wanted to take to his friends and sorted the order a different way for us.

I’ll be forever grateful that due to his quick thinking and caring nature he helped prevent my son having a bad morning…

A warm-hearted manager warms the hearts of others.

Ian Fosten’s Facebook – March 5th 2023

A preacher took the unpredicted cheekiness of God and wrapped it in a weighted coat of dogma and no imagination. Coercively he urged his listeners to desire above all else this clumsy, muffled form.

The service wound towards its terminus and, when it finally did, almost unnoticed, the Spirit undressed and blithely touched the hurting, listened attentively, and eased the burdens of those whose needs had, for the previous hour, been put on hold.

This gentle, warm-hearted Spirit warms my heart.
