Teacher, pastor, leader? How can we know if someone is 'called'?

The way we know someone is called as a teacher is not by their knowledge, degrees, or how articulate they are, but by seeing the Teacher in them.

How we know someone is a true pastor is not by their certificates or even their compassion for people, but when we see our Shepherd in them.

Similarly, we know someone is called to leadership in the church when we see our King coming forth in them. No one can have true spiritual authority unless abiding in the King.
