|Jeremiah was Called before he was born:||From Paul's letter to the Ephesians:|

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations."
|In Him also we have obtained an inheritance,
being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things
according to the counsel of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ
should be to the praise of His glory.
