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.

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not… « God's Hammer

 The so-called "well meant offer" is an irrational doctrine put forward by neo-Kuyperians and neo-Calvinists.  Basically, the doctrine says that God's revealed will is that all men without exception be saved but God's secret will is that only the elect will be saved.  Unfortunately that has never been the position of the Protestant Reformers in the Calvinist tradition nor is it part of any of the Reformed confessional standards.  In fact, it is what might be called "semi-Arminianism."  The general call of the Gospel is not the same thing as saying that God "desires" to save those whom He has reprobated from before creation.  (Romans 9:11-13; 1 Peter 2:8).
