Time for a Check Up?

Spiritual that is.

Thabiti Anyabwile has written a 9Marks book to help church members assess the state of their spiritual health. It’s called What Is a Healthy Church Member? He proposes that you can identify a healthy church member by ten marks.

  1. Expositional listener
  2. Biblical theologian
  3. Gospel saturated
  4. Genuinely converted
  5. Biblical evangelist
  6. Committed member
  7. Seeks discipline
  8. Growing disciple
  9. Humble follower
  10. Prayer warrior

How do you fare a first glance? Would you call yourself in excellent health spiritually or do you have some deficiencies to ask the Lord to help you with? This little read will help you. I’m taking a chapter a day in my quiet time and using the marks as prayer fodder for working my way through our directory. Care to join me?
