Spurgeon on The Call

How do you know that you are called to gospel ministry as your vocation?

Spurgeon attempts this answer in his Lectures to My Students:

1) An intense, all-absorbing desire for the work, a thoughtful one that continues with us.

2) An aptness to teach and some measure of the other qualities needful for the office of a public instructor.

3) A measure of conversion-work going on under his efforts.

4) Preaching that is acceptable to the people of God.

5) The call endures through hard times.
