Nothing Beats the Taste of Fresh FruitWould you like true fulfillment in your life? Health in your relationships? Victory over anxiety and conflict? You can have them—if you let God’s Spirit grow his fruit in your heart.In The Fruit of the Spirit, Tom Trask and Wayde Goodall take you for a close look at love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, and the rest of the fruit of the Spirit. Here is a passionate and illuminating look at what happens to your thoughts, emotions, and actions when you live each day in intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. Drawing from the storehouse of God’s Word, Trask and Goodall sow seeds of insight into your heart that both convict and encourage. They show how you can cooperate with God’s work in your life. And they offer true-life examples of the difference you, too, can make when you let the Holy Spirit reproduce the character of Jesus within you.Your witness for Christ is as good as the fruit your relationship with him produces. The Fruit of the Spirit points you toward a lifestyle that makes the Gospel you proclaim attractive to others because they can see its results.
