Character and Power

We should not be impressed with people who have strong anointings or power who do not have a life of character. On the other hand, we cannot think a person with moral excellence is all that a Christian should be.

Jesus was neither a monk nor a showman.

Jesus was a miracle worker who operated with great power and Jesus lived a life of holiness who hated sin and loved righteousness.

We should always aspire both: character and power.

Character demonstrates the work of God within us to transform us into his likeness. And power witnesses to the glory of Jesus as the supreme God of the universe.

I want people to see the holiness of God through my life. Yet I want also want people to see the power of God as I lay hands on the sick, blind, and the demon-possessed. Both bear witness to God’s greatness, and both form the direction that we should strive to be as Christians.
