What is God`s calling on my life?
Your calling is unique because God created you as a unique individual with a special part to play in His plan, as a unique member of Christ`s body (that is assuming that you have received Jesus as your Lord and Savior).

The easiest way to discover your unique calling is to spend time getting to know Jesus more intimately. This means spending time in prayer, reading God`s Word and with other followers of Jesus. As you do these things, over time you will learn what your call is.

You are not the same as anyone else because He has designed you to be a unique member of His body, with a special task. That task could be something very simple. It might mean that you are called to clean toilets, or to be an excellent mother or father raising your children for Jesus, or to feed the poor, or preach the Word all around the world, or create websites sharing the Gospel . . . Or perhaps He`s called you to do a job and earn money and send some to missionaries so they can preach the Gospel overseas. Or maybe you are called to become a missionary yourself. Whatever Jesus calls you to do, the important thing is to do it wholeheartedly as if you were doing it for Him.

The Bible says that if you are faithful doing the small things, God will give you greater things to do (Luke 16:10). He rewards those who work hard and who are faithful. Those who preach, sing or who are "seen" to be doing the work of the Lord do not necessarily have a higher calling (although they may be more accountable because they have been given a place where they are in the limelight and others see them.) Jesus does not perceive prestige, position and power as man does. Not at all. He sees and rewards humility. Many believers have been given more "hidden" gifts. They might sit in their home praying for others, and writing letters to prisoners, perhaps baking cookies for a sick neighbor. Their gifts are not "seen" by many people. But God sees them and will greatly reward those who are faithful to humbly exercise their gifts.

It is important to attend a church where the Bible is studied as God`s Word, and where Jesus is lifted up, exalted and worshiped as the Son of God. As you pray, hear good, Bible teaching, and as you fellowship with other believers, you will discover your unique gifting and calling.

Oftentimes our calling to serve Jesus relates directly with our personalities and natural gifts--although this is not always so. Many times, God takes our talents and asks us to use them to glorify Him and to let others know about Him. But He does not want our talents to be used to bring honor and glory to ourselves as so many people do; rather, He wants us to be conscious of Him as we use our talent, and to bring Him all the glory, honor and praise.

Read the Bible to discover more about your calling. Read Romans 12, and 1 Corinthians 12 and Ephesians 4.  And pray and ask God to specifically show you what He would have you to. Here is a beautiful verse, which shows that we are God`s handiwork, and He made us to serve Him by doing works that He has prepared for us to do: "For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them" (Ephesians 2:10).

What is God`s calling on my life?
Jehovah’s purpose is for all intelligent creation to be united in worship—none being misled by falsehood, none groping because of failure to find the real meaning of life. How we long for the day when all who live will bless the only true God! (Ps. 103:19-22) But before that can be, Jehovah must purge his creation of those who spurn his loving kingship and who insist on spoiling life for others. Mercifully he gives advance notice of what he will do. People everywhere have opportunity to change their course. Thus in our own day this urgent appeal is being made worldwide: “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of the judgment by him has arrived, and so worship the One who made the heaven and the earth and sea and fountains of waters.” (Rev. 14:6, 7) Have you accepted that invitation? If so, it is now your privilege to work with Jehovah’s organization to help others to do so. 6 It is not God’s purpose to bring into his organization people who simply say they believe in Jehovah and that they want to live in Paradise but who at the same time continue to pursue their own selfish interests. He wants people to come to an “accurate knowledge of his will,” and this should be reflected in their lives. (Col. 1:9, 10) After appreciative persons learn the fundamental teachings of the Bible, they want to press on to Christian maturity. Their desire is to get to know Jehovah intimately, to broaden and deepen their understanding of his Word, and to apply it more fully in their lives. They seek to be like their heavenly Father, reflecting his qualities and viewing matters as he does. This moves them to search out ways to share as fully as possible in the work that he is having done in the earth in our day. Is that what you are doing?—Eph. 5:1; Heb. 5:12–6:3; 1 Tim. 4:15. 7 The Bible shows that those who serve Jehovah are to be a united people. (Eph. 4:1-3) This unity is to exist now, even though we live in a divided world and are still struggling with our own imperfections. Jesus earnestly prayed that his disciples would all be one, enjoying true unity. What would this mean? That first of all they would have a good relationship with Jehovah and his Son. Also that they would be united with one another. (John 17:20, 21) This is now being achieved as they apply the instruction received at Jehovah’s “house.”
