“A heart wound” by Nathan Cole

“My hearing him preach gave me a heart wound. By God’s blessing, my old foundation was broken up, and I saw that my righteousness would not save me.”

–Nathan Cole, a Connecticut farmer converted to Jesus Christ in the 1740s, describing what happened to him under the preaching of George Whitefield. Quoted in Timothy J. Keller, Ministries of Mercy (Phillipsburg, NJ: P&R Publishing, 1997), 37.
