Character is who we really are on the inside. It’s the person we are when no one’s watching or listening. Before we choose to follow Jesus, the Bible tells us our character is controlled by our sinful nature. But when we turn to God, God gives us His Holy Spirit to change us and guide us to have godly character instead. As followers of Christ, a godly character is important, because we are examples to the world around us of who Jesus is and what His character is like. If we have godly character, they learn good things about Jesus. If we choose to continue having sinful character, people will be confused about Who Jesus really is.
