My whole family at church in the mornings. We dined on a cold bullock’s heart pie and cucumbers. My whole family at church in the afternoon; the text in Job 31:3: “Is not destruction to the wicked? and a strange punishment to the workers of iniquity?” From which words we had an excellent sermon, setting forth to us in a very expressive and persuasive manner the danger which every sinner runs of incurring the punishment of Hell, and also, how severe the punishment of Hell will be. Oh, may the good God give me his grace that the words I have this day heard may sink deep into my heart and produce in me a thorough reformation, and that I may every day bring forth fruits meet for repentance! In the evening Thomas Davy at our house, to whom, and in the day, I read 2 of Tillotson’s and of Hervey’s sermons.
