Bible characters can seem larger than life. Their stories are so grand, their significance so great, it’s easy to forget they were real people—with real struggles—that God chose to use in spite of their weaknesses.
That’s one reason character studies are so powerful. Whether you’re studying for personal devotion or preparing a lesson or sermon, when you dive deep into the lives of biblical characters, you realize that there was nothing special to set them apart; God didn’t choose these individuals because of any intrinsic greatness. In fact, God delights in using sinful, flawed people who nevertheless turned to him in reliance on his grace. In short, character studies remind us that God uses messed-up people like you and me.
