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.

Westminster Larger Catechism: Question 42

Question 42

Why was our Mediator called Christ?

Our Mediator was called Christ, because he was anointed with the Holy Ghost above measure, (John 3:34, Ps. 45:7) and so set apart, and fully furnished with all authority and ability, (John 6:27, Matt. 28:18–20) to execute the offices of prophet, (Acts 3:21–22, Luke 4:18,21) priest, (Heb. 5:5–7, Heb. 4:14–15) and king of his church, (Ps. 2:6, Matt. 21:5, Isa. 9:6–7, Phil. 2:8–11) in the estate both of his humiliation and exaltation.
