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 30

Question 30

Doth God leave all mankind to perish in the estate of sin and misery?

God doth not leave all men to perish in the estate of sin and misery, (1 Thess. 5:9) into which they fell by the breach of the first covenant, commonly called the Covenant of Works; (Gal. 3:10,12) but of his mere love and mercy delivereth his elect out of it, and bringeth them into an estate of salvation by the second covenant, commonly called the Covenant of Grace. (Tit. 3:4–7, Gal. 3:21, Rom. 3:20,8–9)
