How do I figure out my calling?

The call of the worker is, in reality, a general call to the whole church. The real question is, “Who should join us as workers among the least-reached?” This raises the matter of God’s calling on all our lives. This is sometimes presented as a mysterious thing or a product of sentimentality or emotionalism. In Scripture there are many people whose call wasn’t recorded. God's calling on the lives of all believers shouldn’t be seen as unique, unusual or spectacular. The Great Commission (Mt. 28:18‐20; Mk. 16:15; Lk. 24:47; Jn. 20:21 and Acts 1:8) was given to the whole church and applies to each member of the church. A call to the whole body of believers includes a call to each member of the body. The whole church is to be committed to world mission and God is a missionary God. In a sense every believer should be a missionary. The Lord of the Harvest directs where workers go. A worker who stays in the town of his birth isn’t inferior to a worker in Atlanta, Riyadh, or Tokyo.
