Many are called, Few are chosen

Matthew 20:16

So the last shall be first, and the firs last: and the first last: for many be called, but few are chosen.

Matthew 22:14

For many are called, but few are chose.

Romans 8:28-29

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be firstborn among many brethren.

To be faithful is to be trustworthy, reliable, and responsible in our interactions with  God both and man.  the Apostle Paul shows in 1Corinthians 12  that we must not think our calling is merely radon, a coincidence, such thinking glorifies neither God’s genius nor His magnanimous generosity in stooping to call us, God is following a plan. He is creating a family team, and within His actions, nothing happens by chance, not even our calling. (see 1Corinthiams 12:12-13,18, 27-31)

God is expanding His Family, positions of responsibility to be faithfully performed by the elect. The Church is called and formed as a body of people led by the Holy Spirit to do works  representing God. There is undoubtedly some overlap in what the elect are require to achieve, but plainly, everyone does not perform exactly the same specific responsibilities.  (Philippians 3:13-15.  Matthew 6:20.  Colossians 3:1-4)

The covenants contains extensive foundational material that can bolster our awareness of why things are the way they are in this world, promoting understanding. Each covenant provides a clearer picture of God’s desires and of his judgments, to which we can learn to submit and conform. In his children, God is creating righteous leadership so that the leadership failures of the past will not be repeated in His Kingdom under  Jesus Christ.
