Fruit of the Spirit Bible Studies were written with the goal of allowing the Spirit of God use the Word of God to produce his fruit in your life. They can be used in your quiet time, small group, Sunday school, or neighborgood Bible study. Six lessons focus on one or two verses each so that you can see them in context and discover what the Bible says on your own. Questions encourage thought and exploration rather than one-word answers. Leader's notes are provided.
We all need faithful friends--people who accept us as we are, who seek our best interests, and who stick with us in a crisis. Yet being a faithful friend is more important than finding one. This Fruit of the Spirit Bible study looks at six essential qualities we need to become faithful friends. These qualities help us lay a foundation for lasting relationships. The eight-volume Fruit of the Spirit Bible Studies series not only helps you discover what the Bible says about the vital traits that the Holy Spirit produces in believers, but also moves you beyond reflection and discussion to application. Designed for use in small groups or personal devotions, the interactive format will help you grow in your ability to reflect the character of Jesus.
