Nine character qualities for healthy living
Is your life yielding abundant fruit? This book provides a spiritual health check. Allow the Holy Spirit to cultivate and grow the life-transforming fruit of the Spirit into your daily routine! When you live in relationship with Jesus every day, the result of that relationship is the fruit of his characteristics inside of you. Growing fruit takes time, but the Spirit’s presence in your life guarantees that growth will occur and be exhibited in God’s character traits.
Growing the Fruit of the Spirit is your guide to keeping fit for life! Make a healthy lifestyle second nature by allowing God’s presence within to grow His character in you. Includes teaching outlines and questions for group study.
Coauthors, Larry Kreider and Sam Smucker have a lot in common. They both grew up as farm boys in Lancaster County, PA, each began to pastor a new church about 30 years ago in the same county, together started an interdenominational pastor’s prayer meeting, and today oversee a family of churches as they travel nationally and internationally ministering to Christian leaders.
