I read a helpful quote recently in Tim Keller’s Ministries of Mercy regarding determining your Christian calling. I paraphrased it this way,

“The way to determine if God calls you to a special ministry is to find an agreement of three issues. There will be a desire to do it, an ability to do it and opportunity to do it. Only when these three elements agree is there a call.”

Arranged in numerical points it would look like this:

1. Desire

2. Ability

3. Opportunity
