2 Peter 1:5-10 How Do I If I Am a Healthy Christian?

2Peter 1:3-9

 

In Christianity, God gives us a standard by which we can constantly measure our spiritual health(soundness), which ultimately leads to growth. All healthy things grow, when growth ceases death follows. The true test of our growth is not merely attendance, involvement in multiple activities, good deeds, or how many scriptures we can quote. It is when we are developing and increasing in the areas, that Peter lists.
