The Kind of Person God Uses

Often times we wonder the kind of people or person God uses for His good works and if we actually fall into the category of such people. According to Walter A. Henrichsen, from his book “Disciples Are Made Not Born” describes the kind of people or a person God uses as an Individual who is Committed, a Faithful man who will Teach others to be committed to doing the work of God.

In his book, Henrichsen pointed out that the key to this disciple-making ministry is Faithful men and women. About seven essential traits of what qualifies you to be “a faithful man or woman” were described in his book. In this article, I will be sharing a summary of these seven characteristics of a faithful man- the kind of person God uses.

A faithful man/woman has adopted the same objectives in life that God sets forth in the scriptures. A faithful man chooses eternal objectives for his life. Matthew 6:33

A faithful man/woman is willing to pay any price to have the will of God fulfilled in his life. Having vomited himself to God’s objectives, the faithful man steadfastly resists becoming ensnared in the world’s glittering attractions. 2 Timothy 2:3-4

A faithful man/woman put no confidence in the flesh. 2 Corinthians 1:9

A faithful man/woman does not have an independent spirit. Accomplishing the work of God is a team effort, God is looking for faithful people who are willing to subjugate their own ideas for the sake of the team.

A faithful man/woman has a love for people. To be like God is to love people because God loves people. A disciple is one who is involved in the lives of people. 1 John 4:10

A faithful man/woman does not allow himself to become trapped in bitterness. Hebrew 12:15

A faithful man/woman has learned to discipline his life. 1 Corinthians 9:24-27

The truth is we all want to be used by God and be His disciples – teaching others and helping them to know and grow in Christ, but the question is: Are you a Faithful man or woman whom God can use?

Who is a faithful man/woman?

A person who has applied the Scriptures to every area of his/her life.
