Description

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

Tennent supports his exhortation to follow God's teaching and statutes in this sermon by citing Psalms 25:5, "Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day;" Job 34:32, "That which I see not teach thou me;" and Psalms 119:33, "Teach me O Lord the way of thy Statutes, and I shall keep it unto the end."

From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote this sermon in 1751, then delivered it again in 1759 and 1761.
