How did you know you were called to the priesthood? I would like to get an answer from someone I know more personally.
It is a good question and one I am not sure I can adequately answer, but I will try. Several reasons come to mind, particularly these three:
- When I read the Scriptures and the accounts of the Lord calling the prophets and Apostles, it felt like he was personally addressing me, as well.
- The thought of being a priest kept nagging at the back of mind and would not go away. It was persistent and so I thought it must be from God.
- Other people told me I would be a good priest and encouraged me to consider the priesthood. God often speaks through other people.
