What Does a Normal, Healthy Believer Look Like? In Romans 15, Paul who had never been to Rome was writing to the church there and commending them on their living out the truth of Christ. He describes many elements of their lives that were what he noted as good, healthy and part of a normal life of one supernaturally saved.
