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 71: Free Grace

Question 71

How is justification an act of God’ s free grace?

Although Christ, by his obedience and death, did make a proper, real, and full satisfaction to God’ s justice in the behalf of them that are justified; (Rom. 5:8–10,19) yet in as much as God accepteth the satisfaction from a surety, which he might have demanded of them, and did provide this surety, his own only Son, (1 Tim. 2:5–6, Heb. 10:10, Matt. 20:28, Dan. 9:24,26, Isa. 53:4–6,10–12, Heb. 7:22, Rom. 8:32, 1 Pet. 1:18–19) imputing his righteousness to them, (2 Cor. 5:21) and requiring nothing of them for their justification but faith, (Rom. 3:24–25) which also is his gift, (Eph. 2:8) their justification is to them of free grace. (Eph. 1:7)
