Can one have the fruit of the Spirit? Bruce Williams is convinced this is exactly what God plans for us. Many look at themselves and see that they are far from consistent in producing the love, joy, peace, patience, and kindness that is needed, not to mention the other qualities Paul describes in his famous passage to the Galatians. But all are in process and if hearts are surrendered to God's working, one can increasingly see the Spirit produce those qualities that mark a disciple. This book will guide one toward a changed heart and character, and in so doing, to changed behavior. People can be different. People can be transformed and can live in such a way that the Spirit comes through with those things against which there is no law. This eleven-week study guide gives readers space for writing answers to the questions, which helps them to personalize the lessons and be ready to share in group discussions.
Bruce Williams has an undergraduate degree in psychology and a master's in Bible. Bruce has led churches in South Florida, San Diego, and Chicago, and is currently the congregational evangelist of the Los Angeles International Church of Christ.
