Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

Why are they trying to change the doctrine of Penal Substitutionary Atonement - YouTube

What is the Law/Gospel distinction? There are three uses for the moral law: 1) The Law drives us to Christ for mercy. 2) The Law is the basis for keeping the peace in society through judicial and criminal sanctions. 3) The Law tells Christians how they are to glorify God and please God by doing good works. Good works do not earn or merit salvation or justification. We do good works only out of gratitude to Christ for saving us. Only because of faith are we accepted and our good works are only pleasing to God after we have come to Christ through faith.

There are three kinds of law in the Bible: 1) Sacrificial and Ceremonial Law. 2) Judicial/Criminal Law of the OT nation of Israel. 3) The Moral Law. The first two kinds of law are done away with. #1 is no longer necessary since Christ fulfilled all the law and is the end of the law for righteousness. (Romans 10:1-4; Galatians 4:4; Matthew 3:15; Matthew 5:17). Only the moral law is still in effect that is only for sanctification and to show the Christian how he or she is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.  The judicial laws of the Old Testament nation of Israel passed away with that nation in the dispersion. 

Article VII Of the Old Testament

The Old Testament is not contrary to the New; for both in the Old and New Testament everlasting life is offered to mankind by Christ, who is the only Mediator between God and man, being both God and man. Wherefore they are not to be heard which feign that the old fathers did look only for transitory promises. Although the law given from God by Moses, as touching ceremonies and rites, do not bind Christian men, nor the civil precepts thereof ought of necessity to be received in any commonwealth; yet, notwithstanding, no Christian man whatsoever is free from the obedience of the commandments which are called moral.
