The Collect

O LORD, who for our sake didst fast forty days and forty nights; Give us grace to use such abstinence, that, our flesh being subdued to the Spirit, we may ever obey thy godly motions in righteousness, and true holiness, to thy honour and glory, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

Gordon H. Clark: The Contents of Revelation Form a System

"Since God is truth, and since Christ is the Logos, Wisdom, or Reason of God, one naturally expects that the contents of revelation would form a system.  This expectation is not disappointed.  The various doctrines of the Bible dovetail and fit into each other.  A later part explains more fully the implications  of an earlier part.  For this reason a given chapter of the Westminster Confession is understood more clearly when it is compared with others.  Predestination and providence were closely related; the chapter on the fall of man lays the foundation for the doctrine of the atonement, effectual calling, and sanctification."
