These forty-eight weekly Bible studies were written with one goal in mind-to allow the Spirit of God to use the Word of God to produce his fruit in your life. These studies will help you discover what the Bible says rather than simply telling you what it says. They encourage you to think and to explore rather than to merely fill in the blank with one word answers.
Fruit of the Spirit will help you discern what the Bible says about the vital traits that the Holy Spirit produces in believers, and move you beyond reflection to application. Designed for use as personal Bible study or group study, the interactive format will help you grow in your ability to reflect the character of Jesus and will not only in understanding the fruit, but also in applying them to daily life.
Whether you are studying on your own or within a group, the Fruit of the Spirit Bible studies reveal areas in your thoughts and feelings that need to be transformed by the truth of Scripture. In addition, these studies include many "resource boxes" which accompany some of the questions to enrich your time in God's word. These helps include explanations from original languages, cultural and historical background, quotations from biblical scholars, and other features.
