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.

Calvin on Assurance:: Westminster Seminary California

Good works are not the basis of assurance. Muller misunderstands Calvin.  Calvin never associated assurance with works even after conversion.  After conversion there are good works to be sure but good works can never give assurance precisely because they are always imperfect and fall short of God's glory.  (Romans 3:23; 1 John 1:8-9; Psalm 143:2).
