Description

Gilbert Tennent (1703-1764) was an Irish-American Presbyterian clergyman, and one of the leaders of the Great Awakening.

Tennent begins both of these closely related sermons, the first on the mortification of sins and the second on resignation to God's will, by citing 2 Samuel 15:26, "But if he thus say, I have no delight in thee; behold, here am I, let him do to me as seemeth good unto him."
The second sermon also cites verses from Matthew, Samuel, John, and Hebrews.

From dates noted on the manuscript, it seems Tennent wrote these sermons in 1744, and delivered them again in 1745, 1746, 1748, 1749, 1756, 1762 and 1763.
