Williams: 7 inter-relational indicators

Friday, March 3, 2023
    If one [of the body] part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
    —1 Corinthians 12:26-27 (NIV)
    Seven marks of spiritual health [in] our righteousness toward others: (1) Christians work to glorify God in doing good. (2) God’s children cannot but naturally love one another. (3) A compassionate heart, even toward enemies, is a Christian heart. (4) Impartial reproving, a character of God’s people. (5) Admirable resisting of temptation. (6) A Christian bearing of reproof an argument of much of Christ Jesus. (7) God’s people willing to lose all for God’s glory.
