An excerpt from “mljtrust.org” entitled, “Worthy Of Our Calling” states: “God has called us with an effectual call, and through this call he has saved us to himself. He has called us to be holy, to be a royal priesthood, to be his sons and daughters, to be co-heirs of Christ’s inheritance, and so much more. Because of this calling we are to walk in a manner that is worthy and pleasing to God.” This article can be viewed at: https://www.mljtrust.org/sermons-online/ephesians-4-1-3/worthy-of-our-calling The effectual call is described in “gotquestions.org” entitled, “What is the effectual calling/call?” states: “The effectual call is understood as God’s sovereign drawing of a sinner to salvation. The effectual call to a sinner so overwhelms his natural inclination to rebel that he willingly places faith in Jesus Christ.” This article can be viewed at: What is the effectual calling/call? | GotQuestions.org [Reflection is based on the Bible Reference – Ephesians 4:1]
Application: “In one sense, there is a general call for all believers as revealed through God’s Word. God calls for all of us to make disciples, to daily spend time with him through his Word and prayer, to be involved with and serve a Bible preaching church, and to turn away from sin. These are aspects of God’s general call for all believers.
However, God also has a specific call for every believer—such as seen in God’s call for Abraham to leave his home and family to be a blessing to the world. A specific call deals with things that are not clearly revealed through his Word.” [Source: 1. Understanding God’s Call (Genesis 12:1–9) | Bible.org ]
