In theology this is called effectual calling of the saints. This is not the external calling one to be a pastor, Sunday school teacher, missionary or an evangelist. Remember we need to be in context, we just saw how our hearts are being enlightened; we are talking of salvation, the internal calling, the special, and powerful and the heavenly calling of God. This is the calling of salvation, to eternal life in Christ Jesus.
This is the encouragement we have the hope for eternal life. We are called by the grace of God. There is an external calling where the gospel goes to all people. There are lots of scriptures in the Bible for the external calling or the general calling. Mr And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. But the effectual calling is closely connected with regeneration. Regeneration means born again.

In regeneration the man is brought from spiritual death to spiritual life and in effectual calling he is drawn out the new life and points it in God-ward direction. It brings the new life into action. In a broader sense this is the complete work of regeneration. There is lot of scriptures for effectual call but I am going to limit with a few. There are many scientists, engineers, doctors who cannot understand spiritual things, they are wise men, mighty men and noble men of the world but they are not called. So the gospel is foolishness to them but to you who are called it is the power and the wisdom of God.
Paul said that you may know the hope of his calling. He called us to eternal life and the eternal life is so rich. And what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints. His inheritance in the saints": as His inheritance is there said to be in the saints. Besides the heavenly inheritance prepared for the saints, there is a present inheritance in the saints. De But the LORD hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the iron furnace, even out of Egypt, to be unto him a people of inheritance, as ye are this day. This is the reason why the Lord so early provided a portion or inheritance for the children of Israel in the land of Canaan; because they were his part, his portion, his inheritance, which he chose by lot for himself, or allotted to himself; whom he chose to be his special and peculiar people; for though all the world is his, he only reserved a part for himself, which he separated from all the rest.
In the same way we the true believers are blessed as there are many people in the world yet he chose you for his own inheritance. There is no mortgage on his property. I am glad that I do not belong to me anymore. But I belong to the Lord. The answer is I am not my own but belong to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ, who with his precious blood had fully satisfied for all my sins, and delivered me from all the power of the devil; and so preserves me that without the will of my Father, not a hair can fall from my head.

Remember we are his by conquest. There was the opposition force of Satan; there was a battle just like there was battle between God and Pharaoh. There were times we heard the word of God but we put up a fight against God, however there was that time when the power of God was so effective we could not resist.

We were hiding from God like Zacchaeus on the tree but we wanted to listen to what he said but Jesus came and that effectual call was so powerful like Zacchaeus we fell into his hands. We are conquered captives of his omnipotent love, we are chosen and purchased and the Lord's portion, and the lot of his inheritance, in whom he is, and will be abundantly glorified.

So Christ Jesus enlightened us. Joh In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And do you know the hope of his calling?
