The Golden Chain
In the midst of storms . . .
You can't pray:
the Spirit Intercedes vs. 26-27
You can't see:
God is weaving vs. 28
You don't trust:
God has worked your salvation vs. 29-30
Used for Identification
Used for a Request
Used for God's Effective Work
The Inner and Outer Call
"When he returned, having received the kingdom, he ordered these servants to whom he had given the money to be called to him, that he might know what they had gained by doing business.”
Romans 1:1 "Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God"
Romans 4:17 "as it is written, “I have made you the father of many nations”—in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist."
Romans 11:29 "For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable"
Hebrews 9:15 "Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant.”
1 Corinthians 1:26 "For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth."
1 Corinthians 7:18 "Was anyone at the time of his call already circumcised? Let him not seek to remove the marks of circumcision. Was anyone at the time of his call uncircumcised? Let him not seek circumcision."
Ephesians 4:1 "I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called"
Jude 1 " Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and brother of James, To those who are called, beloved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ"
The Effective Work of God:
"But when he who had set me apart before I was born, and who called me by his grace”
It is equated with God's action
It is used synonymously with salvation
It is the outworking of predestination
Synonymous with Salvation
Equated with God's Action
2 Thessalonians 2:13-14
“13 But we ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the firstfruits to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth. 14 To this he called you through our gospel, so that you may obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
God effects His determined call to save those whom He has chosen through the Gospel that we proclaim to the lost.
“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day.”
All those that the Father draws will be saved.
“For many are called, but few are chosen.”
The 'Gospel Call' goes out to many people but only those whom He has foreknown and predestined will be saved.
The Legal declaration of God that we are righteous.
“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”
“My life is but a weaving
Between my God and me.
I cannot choose the colors
He weaveth steadily.
Oft’ times He weaveth sorrow;
And I in foolish pride
Forget He sees the upper
And I the underside. . ."

The act of God where He finally and fully makes us like Christ
