Romans 1:06 - Called of Christ Bookmark

Romans 1:6

"among whom you also are the called of Jesus Christ;" (NASB)

"Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ:" (KJV)

"And you are included among those Gentiles who have been called to belong to Jesus Christ." (NLT)

Called
CALLED, pp. Invited; summoned; addressed; named; appointed; invoked; assembled by order; recited. (Noah Webster)

G2822
kle?tos
klay-tos'
From the same as G2821; invited, that is, appointed, or (specifically) a saint: - called. (Strong's Concordance)

The fruit of the olive in its wild state is small and worthless.  To become prolific the olive must be grafted, a process by which good stock is made to grow upon the wild shrub.  Paul uses this fact as a powerful allegory (Rom. 11:17) in showing how the Gentiles are under obligation to the true Israel, indicating that it is contrary to nature for the wild olive slip to be grafted on to good stock.  Douglas, J. (1982). New Bible Dictionary.

How wondrous indeed to be "called to belong to Jesus Christ."  Who am I that you are even mindful of me?  Yet you have saved me from my sins and called me into a life undeserved. Born from above in a most miraculous and unusual way.
