Character is a combination of qualities that distinguishes any person or class of persons. It is also a sum total of all positive and negative qualities in a person’s life which is shown in his thoughts, values, motivation, attributes, feelings and actions. Character is the inner life of an individual and the make-up that defines us uniquely.
Reputation is what you have come to be known by, what people say about you, it is based on people’s opinion about you whether positive or negative, but character is what you are known by God. Moses was known as the “meekest man on earth”, while David was known as “A man after the heart of God. Character is beyond what men sees on the outside. It is the results of the fruits produced inside.
Character is what defines you. It’s what people see in you. It’s what people will say about you after you pass away. Character is one of the most important things you have. How are you investing in yours? Do people see your faith in what you do? Is your character reflected in how you serve the Kingdom?
True character will be seen only when you under pressure, under compromise to give in or give up. D. L Moody said, “If I can take care of my character, my reputation will take care of itself”. To enjoy the things we ought to and to hate the things we ought to are expressions of excellence of character. If you create an act, you create a habit, if you create a habit, you create a character, if you create a character, you create a destiny.
Character building and development continues now and ever until death. How reformed your character is shows your maturity level, and thus determines your level of influence. The church has never lacked power, what is missing is basic character, and this has contributed a great hindrance to power flow. To sustain the anointing, there must a character revolution.
Your character needs development for these reasons: It is a sign that you have received the Lordship of the Word and the Spirit in their totality, so that you may be vessels unto honour. As God’s beloved and representative on earth, we don’t have to carry His power alone, but also to portray His image character. People don’t just listen to effective message again, but they also watch the man behind the message. 2 Corinthians 3: 2 … “We are the epistles known and read of all men”. GRACE TO YOUR HEART!
