January 29, 1758

1758 January 29 (Sunday).  Read 1 Chron. 27 and p.m. Luk. 15.  Preached a. and p.m. on Rom. 8.28.  O that we might be truely apprehensive of the distinguishing Favor and Privilege of the External Call!  And may we be obedient to it!  Above all the Dispensers of Gods Word are under peculiar Obligations to conform thereto them Selves.  May God grant me the Grace that I may!  N.B. On drawing near the Time of Travel desired Prayers.  Granny Maynard dined with us — and was here at Evening and lodged here.  Robert Cook here at noon and delivers me another paper.  At Eve stopped the Church and read it to them — he being present.
