Savannah

Sun Apr 11 1736 [Savannah]: I preached at the new storehouse, on the first verse of the Gospel for the day: ‘Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do you not believe me?’ There was a large congregation, whom I endeavoured to convince of unbelief, by simply proposing the conditions of salvation as they are laid down in Scripture, and appealing to their own hearts whether they believed they could be saved on no other terms.
In every one of the six following days I had some fresh proofs of the absolute necessity of following that wise advice of the Apostle: ‘Judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts.’
