What does it mean to bear fruit? Our new book is intended to refresh and refine our understanding of the Fruit of the Spirit—of a life lived out of the Holy Spirit’s dwelling with us.
From the Garden of Eden to the Age of Information, the Fruit of the Spirit blooms in all of God’s story. To engage with it is to travel a terrain of delight, discipline, and destiny. It is to commune deeply with the Holy Spirit, allowing it to influence and imprint us. Paul does not describe the fruits as separate components of a cornucopia, but as a singular Fruit with nine shades, textures, and flavors—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
This book is meant to guide and encourage us on the journey to fruit-bearing. As we read, may we read with the Spirit, growing in awareness of how God embodies this fruit and calls us to do the same. Amen.
