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.

Westminster Larger Catechism: Question 11

Question 11

How doth it appear that the Son and the Holy Ghost are God equal with the Father?

The scriptures manifest that the Son and the Holy Ghost are God equal with the Father, ascribing unto them such names, (Isa. 6:3,5,8, John 12:41, Acts 28:25, 1 John 5:20, Acts 5:3–4) attributes, (John 1:1, Isa. 9:6, John 2:24–25, 1 Cor. 2:10–11) works, (Col. 1:16, Gen. 1:2) and worship, (Matt. 28:19, 2 Cor. 8:14) as are proper to God only.

The Westminster Larger Catechism: With Scripture Proofs. (Oak Harbor, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc., 1996).

The Son of God is equal to the Father and to the Holy Spirit.  All three are fully God and are one God.
