Which Bible Character Do You Identify With?

The Characters in the Bible was real people, just like us. We have real struggles, families, dreams, and situations. We sometimes judge others too quickly, before getting to know who they really are. The Bible identifies the bad and good, it is not a story tale book about saints who got it right the first time, but a book about God who loves His people in spite of our wrong doing.


Let us spend time studying our Bible, identifying with the characters in the book. Doesn’t matter if they first appeared to be “good” or “bad,” instead we find out that we are similar to them than we first thought.

“Peter”

I am more like Peter, Impetuous, bold and a leader. Peter was an unspoken leader of the twelve. It seems he was always the first to pipe up and answer Jesus questions or ask him questions. Peter was a sinful man, yet he became a part of Christ’s inner circle. He was singled out at the Last Supper of portrayal, yet His faith was so firm, that Jesus gave him the name of Cephas, meaning in a different language, a rock.


I know that Peter was a man, but his characteristic reminds me of myself.


Your Turn: Before you begin your study, spend time preparing your heart in prayer.

Here are some ideas to get you started.

1. Read John Chapter 11, as you read, pay close attention to each character in the story.

2. Start a journey, write down your character's characteristics. See ways that you are similar with your character.

3. Take what you’ve studied to the Lord in prayer.


Prayer

Thank you God for graciously providing real-life stories that include the good, the bad, and the ugly. We ask you to work in our hearts the transformation needed to make us more like Jesus, because He is the ultimate Bible Character. Help us Lord when we are wrong, right us, if we are lost, guide and lead us to your light and love. In Jesus Name, Amen

The Bible character I feel associated with is Abram (Abraham). God spoke to Mary Lee (Margaret) just as He spoke to Abram (Abraham). The orders were not comfortable; however, after 10 years on this summoned journey, I know that “obedience is better than sacrifice.” I‘ll just leave that right here because I can write a whole book. ViVi, this is your thunder and I respect you to the fullest. Love you much. 💞💞💞
