Five Life Roles

Focus on the relationships that matter the most

What Are These Roles?

There are five basic roles in life that each person can fulfill or help others fulfill. These life roles include being a mature person, an effective proclaimer of truth, a loving marriage partner, a skilled provider, and a wise parent. Relationships form the essence of life. Created for fellowship, we are made to enjoy full fellowship with the Heavenly Father and with one another. Jesus came to earth to reconcile us to Himself and each other, and it is our hope that your relationships will be deepened, strengthened, and affirmed as the Holy Spirit speaks to your life.

Person

Walking with God as an Individual

Each of us is a uniquely created individual, fashioned by God in our mother’s womb and destined for a special purpose in God’s Kingdom. As we grow to understand the Gospel and become a born-again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, our person is changed by the indwelling Spirit of God. Mature people delight in God and seek out His wisdom. They study His Word and obey it. Their lives are surrendered to God, and they endeavor to maintain the disciplines of memorization and meditation on Scripture, consistent prayer, moral purity, freedom from anger, a clear conscience with God and man, and submission to God-given authorities.

Provider

Demonstrating Wisdom in Financial Matters
Each one of us must be prepared for our role as a provider in the home, workplace, or ministry. Whether single or married, skilled providers are diligent in their work and make wise financial decisions. They display the qualities of initiative and creativity in their efforts, and they apply money-saving techniques, establish purchasing disciplines, and avoid debt. They have not only learned to be good stewards, but they are also generous givers who share their resources with those who are in need.

Parent

Wisely Directing Those in Your Care

Should God bless a marriage with children, the things we thought we once knew about raising a family are tested! We learn again, now as a parent, to ask God for His guidance. Wise parents direct their children to seek God, to know Him, and to walk in obedience to His ways. By example, they lead them to live with the priorities of cultivating a relationship with God, maintaining family harmony, and advancing God’s Kingdom. They invest in their children’s lives through praise and help each child discover God’s purpose for his or her life.

Partner

Becoming a Team Player

Successful marriage partners learn contentment before marriage and are committed to a lifelong covenant marriage. Discovering the privilege and responsibility of the role as a partner requires sensitivity to those around us and prepares us to relate lovingly and work together as a team with our spouse. Good communication skills must be applied to preserve oneness in marriage and to keep the relationships strong and free from bitterness. Even if a person does not marry, he or she still needs to understand and work with the people that God brings into his or her life—thinking of others rather than themselves.

Proclaimer

Developing a Powerful Life Message

The Lord grows us through all the seasons of life in order to build a unique life message that becomes our very own testimony to share with others. Effective proclaimers of God’s truth communicate in love. They share the message of salvation through Christ with others, understand the power of prayer, and live according to the Word of God. They are sensitive to the needs of others and alert to timely and appropriate ways to help them as they themselves have been helped by the Lord. They not only seek to make disciples for Christ, but they also help others become disciple makers as well.
