At the age of seven he began to read the Bible. At the age of eleven, he began to think about the state of his soul after hearing a sermon by Henry Erskine. He attended the University of Edinburgh. He was licensed to preach by the Presbytery of Duns and Chirnside. In 1699, he was ordained and held a pastorate at Simprin until 1707. The congregation was very small. It was during his time at Simprin that his preaching began to take form and he spoke the gospel with boldness. He was an extremely popular preacher, but he was extremely self-effacing, considering that he had but small talents. He was reluctant to publish his works, although he wrote out completely all of his sermons before they were preached. Many of his works were published after his death, as he left his manuscripts to the Lord and for his friends to manage. He went from Simprin to Ettrick in 1707, where he remained until his death at the age of 57.
