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.

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."
