Description

We want to live loving, joyful, anxiety-free lives. Yet how can we live in grace when we're so busy battling our old patterns of behavior?Jerry Bridges explores the nine aspects of the "fruit of the Spirit" described in Galatians 5:22-23: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. These qualities of character can truly mark our lives if we devote ourselves to a twofold pursuit: God-centeredness and God-likeness. Jerry shows us how to practice the fruit in daily life.When The Fruitful Lifefirst released, Jerry said, "It was the book I had wanted to write that included everything I forgot and/or learned since The Pursuit of Holiness."
