Os Guinness, in his book The Call, captures a definition for Christian calling that is comprehensive and succinct.
He writes: Calling is the truth that God calls us to himself so decisively that everything we are, everything we do, and everything we have is invested with a special devotion, dynamism, and direction lived out as a response to his summons and service.
It could and probably will take you a lifetime to unpack what this definition entails. It begins with our relationship with and to God and moves in ever-increasing circles that end up touching hearts and lives in spheres closest to us and in places far away.
