He chooses, He calls, He commands, He consoles, He comforts and He confirms.
Look at 2 Thes 2:13-17:
“13. But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation [HE CHOOSES] through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, 14. to which He called you by our gospel [HE CALLS], for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15. Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle [HE COMMANDS]. 16. Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation [HE CONSOLES] and good hope by grace, 17. comfort your hearts [HE COMFORTS] and establish you [HE CONFIRMS] in every good word and work.”
