Publisher's Description

Why are so many Christians stagnant in their faith? Why do we often live as though the gospel stops at the moment of conversion?
 
The good news of Jesus doesn’t stop the moment we get saved. In fact, salvation is only the beginning of God’s work in our lives. We often view salvation as the ending point; it’s really the beginning point. The gospel of Jesus doesn’t only justify us; it sanctifies us. When we receive the Holy Spirit at salvation, an incredible work begins to happen in us: we begin to bear fruit. When we are firmly planted in the gospel and committed to growing in Christ, He produces in us the fruits of the Spirit, the marks of a true Christian.
 
In Bearing Fruit, Robby Gallaty walks us through the life of the Christian. Biblical, intentional, and practical, Bearing Fruit points our hearts to the gracious God who called us, justified us, and is now sanctifying us by the work of his Holy Spirit.

    Great description of spiritual growth and sanctification process

    BEARING FRUIT by pastor Robby Gallaty is part of a trio of books by books published by B&H Publishing Group on the topic of discipleship (the other two titles being Growing Up and Firmly Planted --- also published by B&H Publishing). This particular title focuses on the fruit of the Spirit as described in Galatians 5:22,23. But rather than an in-depth exposition of each of the fruits mentioned in that passage, Gallaty probes a more extensive exposition of the allegory of fruit as compared to the evidences of the life of God that should be evident in the lives of Christians.

    The author wants to show that sanctification --- the process on Earth where the believer cooperates with the action and leading of the Holy Spirit to become more like Christ --- is a natural growth function of life as a new creature in Christ. Just as a human baby would be treated as ill and nutritionally comprised if he did not learn to eat and digest adult food, and to grow physically, emotionally and mentally; so too a Christian is expected to display spiritual maturity and the evident inner changes wrought by the Holy Spirit as time goes on. As Gallaty writes, "Believers are expected to sanctify themselves in the Lord through the strength and power of the Spirit within each of us. We walk in the Spiritwhen we allow God to work in us and to work through us." And the evidences of that work and sanctification [growth] are the fruits of character and attitude called the "fruits of the Spirit" in Galatians 5.

    The author makes a very good point in showing that the term "fruit" is actually used in several places in the New Testament outside of the passage in Galatians, and so a number of chapters are taken up with examining those passages and their meaning to the overall topic of spiritual growth and sanctification. After delving into a thorough explanation of the idea of abiding in Christ, the next chapters look at fruits of repentance, ministry, sanctification, righteousness, good works, love-joy-peace and others in Galatians 5; and finally, the fruit of praise. Writing in a clear and humble manner, Gallaty displays keen insights into both human behavior and psychology, as well as the truths of Scripture and church history to encourage believers to pursue a lifetime and lifestyle of growth by learning to yield to the promptings of the Holy Spirit and keep in step with Him on a daily basis. A quick read, but with much spiritual nourishment to be gained in less than 200 pages. Recommended especially for lay leaders and those who wish to become "disciples who make disciples."

    Bearing Fruit: What Happens When Gods People Grow is the latest book by author/pastor Robby Gallaty. Robby is the Senior Pastor of Long Holly Baptist Church in Hendersonville, TN and has become a leading voice for discipleship within Christian circles. This book is the third and final book in a series which began in 2013 with Growing Up: How to Be a Disciple Who Makes Disciples followed by Firmly Planted: How to Cultivate a Faith Rooted in Christ in 2015.

    In Bearing Fruit, the author attempts to work through the concept of sanctification, defined by Gallaty as the process whereby Christ lives His life through us. He states that the entire process is Gods doing from start to finish but when it happens, God brings forth fruit. All of us should strive to be fruit bearers.

    But what is that fruit? That is the question that Gallaty attempts to explore in this book by going to the seven places in the New Testament where the word fruit is located. He then explores the following: The Fruit of Repentance, Fruit of Ministry; Fruit of Sanctification, Fruit of Righteousness; Fruit of Good Works; The Fruit of the Spirit; and The Fruit of Praise.

    I found this book to be a powerful read, especially when you put it up aside the other books in this series. This will be an excellent discipleship tool that can be used in a small discipleship group setting. It would be helpful to go through this book with what Gallaty has called a D-Group: a gender-exclusive, closed group of three to six people who meet weekly. He does a great job of really going deep in each of these areas. If you are like me, you will be underlining quotes along the way. This book is full of repeatable material that can benefit believers in their walk with Christ.

    I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review.

    FRUIT!

    Bearing Fruit... I found this book to be packed full of wonderful truths that I'm excited to mull-over. Each chapter is another aspect of fruit in our lives and it's a great reference to go to which ever one I'm feeling drawn to by the Spirit to read and pray over any things that He might be helping me see in my own life. I found chapter 7 to be my favorite and loved how he mentioned that the fruit that is in us is for others... it's a way to show the Gospel to others. We need to be constantly weeding our spiritual gardens just like weeding my own garden. If I let it go, I will lessen my harvest if I receive a harvest at all (it might just choke out my plant and kill it). With hands laid out before the Lord, my prayer is that the Gardener would do the cultivation needed in me to bear the fruit He desires, knowing it's NOT an overnight process.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
