The question of whether or not God wants you to serve in missions can be a challenging one. If you were a pilot trying to land a plane at night, you’d need not just one or two lights to find the runway. You’d need at least three to know which direction to head. In the same way, if you are looking for God’s direction regarding missions, look for at least these three items:
- An interest/desire in your heart that the Lord wants you to serve Him in missions.
- Local-church confirmation: your church sees in you the gifts, character, and ministry involvement needed for missionary service.
- The Lord’s blessing: as you get involved in the area you desire to serve in, your ministry results in people who are spiritually changed.
