Who am I 11
'Speak the truth in love, growing in every way.' Ephesians 4:15 NLT
Let's celebrate Reformers, Servers, Achievers, Artists, Thinkers, Loyalists, Enthusiasts, Commanders and Peacemakers! Each one has such an important role for God, and is blessed with such incredible qualities for bringing about change in the world.
Recognising the particular sin habits of our personality type helps us know what we need to work on. For example, if we're a Reformer we need to be aware of our tendency towards self-righteousness. However, it's also important to recognise that we've been wired by God with a passion for justice - and that's a great thing. There are positives and negatives to every character. We'll all have things we need to work on and things that help us do amazing work for God's Kingdom. And when we're aware of other people's patterns, it helps us to empathise and live in harmony with them. As we learn about their weaknesses we become more encouraging towards those who are wired differently.
Our goal is to take off our religious masks, strengthen one another in our areas of struggle, and do it in a gracious, non-judgmental way. When we know and accept ourselves and others, we can walk together in love. 'Speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ' (Ephesians 4:15 NLT). It's about becoming the best version of ourselves - God's unique creation.
So what now? Ask a few people which type of person (of the 9 we've looked at) they're most like. Ask God to help you strengthen others and yourself to be able to become who God's created you to be.
