What are the marks of a truly mature Christian? The first chapter of 2 Peter is a refreshing well of truth on this subject. Peter lists the virtues of a Christlike believer-knowledge, self-control, endurance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love. Attaining all these virtues may seem impossible; but with God's help, every Christian can become spiritually mature.
