Thesis:   God's call is unto the acquisition of glory from our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Introduction:   In our look at this short paragraph last time, we focused our attention upon the work of the Spirit in bringing us to a new identity and the work of Truth in bringing us to faith. These are the two most fundamental aspects of the methodology of the salvation for which we were chosen by God.

This evening we are going to look at the goal of God in His choices. Our text says that we were called unto the acquisition of glory from our Lord, Jesus Christ. The text is important in that it tells us why God has gone to all the trouble that is involved in creating a host of inhabitants for the Kingdom of the Christ. In the almost inevitable turn from God's plan to the wishes and wants of men that occurs over time, men have made the goal of salvation simply getting to heaven when they die, often with no serious interest in anything beyond that. That is like unto a person simply wanting to be "born", but never grow up; it is a waste of "Life".
