I Corinthians 1 :22-24 For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
When we say God calls, we mean the work of God that unlocks our eyes to see Christ as the right and true and wise and all knowing, and the call is so compelling that we receive Him for salvation. God’s call is His life-giving order or instruction with authority. Come. If you are a believer today, that is how you came to be a believer, a Christian, or became born again,. This is how you got saved.
Now what this call of God will produce in you is exactly what is called for. In other words. God called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. The call my friend was effective, that is causing result; the desired result happened. I can tell you when God gives a call to you, it will produce what it calls for.
It is like someone comes over to you when you are in a dead sleep, and gives you a command to wake up. And you know how it is, you leap upright. In other words, when you hear the command or the call of God in your ear, you did not ponder and then decide to wake up. When God calls, you woke up. The command was “wake up” and that is what happens. That is how God raises us up from spiritual death. Only God can do it, and you know if you are a believer that is how you became a believer. That is what Ephesians 2:4 says, that God made us alive when we were dead. The truth was, you were about to sleep yourself into hell, and our gracious God woke you up to the cruelty of sin and the loveliness of a great Savior.
