Description

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

Tennent begins this sermon, on the timing of salvation, by citing 2 Corinthians 6:1-2 "For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." He also cites Isaiah 55:6, "Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near," and Hebrews 3:15, "While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation."

From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote this sermon in 1744, then delivered it again in 1745 or 1746, 1750, 1751, 1761, and 1763.
