"God's Effectual Calling," Larger Catechism Q #67. First Presbyterian Church Perkasie MacLaren

During the first and second World Wars, a poster was distributed throughout the country with a rather vigorous looking elderly man in a striped top hat, pointing directly at the viewer. The poster said, "Uncle Sam Wants You!" In a powerful and direct way,

the poster recruited many young men into the United States military. God's effectual calling of his elect does not make use of such outward symbols, but rather works inwardly and secretly by the Holy Spirit. Watch as Pastor MacLaren explains the meaning of
God's effectual call of his elect from the Larger Catechism of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. This meditation was given as part of the Christmas Worship Service of First Presbyterian Church in Perkasie, PA (www.firstchurchopc.org).
