Final Thoughts Learn to thank God for the distinctive way that He has made you to fit and serve the church and the city around you! Don’t let your personality control you, (e.g. “that’s just the way I am…”) Instead let God control your personality (i.e. let Him fill/control you with His Spirit) © J.
