EFFECTUAL CALLING. They that are effectually called do in this life
partake of justification, adoption, and sanctification, and the
several benefits which, in this life, do either accompany or flow
from them. It is a common but very false opinion, that whatever may

and they are sanctified, for Paul having prayed that the very God
of peace might sanctify the Christians at Thessalonica wholly, and
that their whoJ spirit, and soul, and body, might be preserved
