Reflection


Spiritovert


'As many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God,' Romans 8:14.

 

'All things bright and beautiful

All creatures great and small  

All things wise and wonderful

The Lord God made them all.'


God made us different and we should celebrate our differences and allow God to sanctify our personality to be used for His glory.


                                          Extrovert=Spiritovert=Introvert

Psychologists describe two main personality types as extroverts and introverts depending generally on their abilities to process and respond to different information.

Extroverts are directed to the objective world while introverts are directed towards the subjective world. Extroverts are talkative, open minded and easily adapted to new friends, groups and environment. Introverts on the other hand, are interested in their own thoughts and feelings. They keep their own territories, enjoy being alone, appear reserved, quiet and thoughtful. They have difficulty making friends and they are like icebergs; what you see on the surface is only a small percent of their entire selves, you always have to look for the substance underneath. Introverts do not easily like to change decisions, but are good listeners and methodical, whereas extroverts are vibrant, warm, emphatic, people-persons, curious and they are almost predictable.

All personality types are good, but they must be given over to the spirit to be used to the glory of God. We make decisions based on our ideas, thoughts and personality types. These decisions must be spirit driven in other to properly qualify us as sons and daughters of God.

I am led to use the term 'spiritovert' if we have yielded our personality type, life, actions, deeds, thoughts and all to be controlled and driven by the spirit of God.

We need to become 'spiritoverts' in order to please our Father in Heaven. We start with the radical change of the born again experience. The Spirit of God transforms our spirits through Jesus Christ, 'for without me (Jesus) ye can do nothing.' John 15: 5

Jesus is the fullness of God in the body. So to be led of the Spirit, we will first need to empty ourselves through repentance, relying on the Blood of Jesus to wash us clean. Then He who is the perfect God and perfect Man will fill us with His own Spirit leading and divine nature. Only then can we be spiritoverts and be fulfilled.

We Christians are sometimes affected by our personality types and these hinder our spiritual growth. We need to continually rely on the Holy Spirit for directions and instructions from the word of God as we pray and exercise our faith in God. May God help you and me to be always led by His Spirit.
