Joy is found in the strangest places: in hospital rooms where patients are weak from surgery; around a dinner table when a husband announces he has been laid off; in a household where every waking moment is filled with laundry, cleaning, shopping, and cooking. Situations like these are hardly fun, but they can be surprising occasions of joy. This Fruit of the Spirit Bible study helps you discover how to rejoice in any situation. 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.
