Description

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

This manuscript contains two sermons, although only one is listed on the title page. The first sermon, on the subject of sleep, or perhaps laziness, begins by citing Proverbs 6:9, "How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?"

The second sermon, "On conversion in heaven," begins by citing Colossians 3:1-4, "If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory."

From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote these sermons in 1749, then delivered one or both of them again in 1760.
