The future promised to God’s faithful is rulership over cities. Perhaps those promises are figurative, but certainly there is a governance function expected of the “kings and priests” God is training. How should introverted people who do not want such responsibility and interaction see this? Are God’s people required to be extroverted? Our physical personality traits cannot be allowed to limit the working of the Holy Spirit. Ultimately, God will heal any “defect”. However personality and character are not the same thing. They are, respectively, genetically derived and learned. Personality is a present moment phenomenon. Character is long term project. Our job is to work with God to build character. With the Holy Spirit, we are capable of change, such that our every thought is aligned to God’s. Daily prayer and Bible study are the keys to chipping away that which doesn’t fit what God requires. God doesn’t expect one monolithic personality in His family, but we will have the same character.
