Have you ever heard someone describe themselves as an “introvert”? Introverted people tend to:
- Be more quiet and reserved.
- Recharge by spending time alone.
- Think carefully before they speak.
- Enjoy daydreaming and thinking deeply.
- Prefer small groups over large ones.
Introverts can be powerful disciples of Christ in a lot of ways.
You can be a powerful leader. Leadership isn’t just about public speaking. It’s also about creative problem-solving, compassionate listening, and considering others’ needs.
You can use your alone time to connect with God. Even Jesus sometimes wanted to be alone to pray and recharge.1 The Spirit can speak to you more easily when you pause.
You can listen to others. Maybe you know what it’s like to be talked over or to have a hard time sharing your thoughts. You can help others who struggle with this too. Listening to others can make a big difference—for them and for you!
You can touch hearts. Even a quiet or short testimony can have a powerful effect! Share what you believe in any way you can, even if it’s by writing it down or being a good example.
Whether you’re an introvert, an extrovert, or somewhere in between, you have value in God’s kingdom. He gave you a unique personality because He has a unique mission for you.
Look for a separate post about extroverts!
