While every believer is uniquely created by God to be integral in the Body of Christ, not all believers fulfill their HEALTHY purposeful design. 

Some believers are BENIGN within the body occupying their intended position but being neither helpful nor harmful to the body. Other believers are MALIGNANT within the body infecting others around themselves and injuring the effectiveness of their particular body part of the Body of Christ. 

BELIEVERS: Which are YOU? 

  • HEALTHY member of the body of Christ fulfilling calling and purpose
  • BENIGN member of the body of Christ oblivious to a calling and purpose
  • MALIGNANT member of the body of Christ sowing discord among brethren

Abandon your theological and philosophical objections to the questions of free-will vs. determinism and just be honest with the Holy Spirit indwelling you. 

HEALTHY reflects living into Eph 4:13 – until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ,

BENIGN and MALIGNANT reflects living into Eph 4:14 – …children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.

PURPOSE of being HEALTHY Eph. 4:14-15 – “Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.”

HEALTHY has to do with Obedience. Obedience is impossible without discipleship and sanctification. But really, who wants to obey?...
