It has been a while since I have done a topic study of something in the Bible. With a lot of prayer and consideration I am being led to do a new one looking at the fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5:22-23.
I want to look at each part of the fruit of the Spirit and what it means and looks like in the life of a believer. I desire to look at what other verses say about each of the parts and how it applies to the life of a believer.
This will begin next Monday and will continue one part of the fruit of the Spirit each week for nine weeks. In order to be ready for this study, I encourage you to read the entire book of Galatians. It is only six chapters long and should not take more than about 30 minutes to read through. This will give you an overall pictures of what Paul is talking about and what leads him to talk about the fruit of the Spirit. If you cannot read the entire book, please, at least read chapter five.
Be willing to let others know about this study coming up. Between now the time the study begins, pray that God will open our eyes to what He has to say and how to apply these things to our lives. Pray that God will change us to be more like Jesus being filled with His Holy Spirit that demonstrates the fruit of the Spirit.
See you next week!
