Some time ago I did an in depth study of the fruit of the spirit, and made several posts about each fruit and how they are used in our lives. So when this site crashed and I started rebuilding it instead of posting 9 new blogs to be sent out I decided to put a link to them via PDF all in this one spot.
I hope you find this an easy and convenient alternative and I hope you enjoy these lessons as much as I enjoyed researching and writing them.
God cleanses our hearts by grace through faith (Eph. 2:8). We cannot and could not save ourselves, thus the need for a savior to come and that Savior is Jesus Christ. The religious leaders of Jesus’ day were not unlike many religions and religious leaders of today. They believed that “right actions and performance would produce a right relationship with God” but the ONLY way to have a right relationship with God is to humble ourselves and accept His sacrifice and receive His gift of righteousness through faith.
