Discernment of God’s will is the process of choosing between two or more good options, seeking out the option that brings God the greatest glory through one’s life.
Discernment does not mean choosing a good option over a bad option; rather it is choosing the best option based upon God’s call in your life. Perhaps you are discerning between full-time missionary work and a secular career. Both paths could give glory to God and bring about the salvation of souls! The question to discern then is which brings the most glory to God and is most profitable to the salvation of souls, including your own.
So how do you begin to discern whether or not you may be called to full-time missionary work with CCO?
Discernment of God’s will is built upon a relationship of communion, dependence and collaboration with God.
