When we partner with the Holy Spirit, together we accomplish the impossible: we are made into the likeness of Christ. When we work with the Holy Spirit, the Spirit works miracles, and we are the miracles He is working! Not only are we changed, but through our joint efforts with the Spirit, the world is changed as well. Now is the season to grow with the Holy Spirit!
Pastor Johnson has designed and developed a comprehensive study on the theme of maturing in our character as disciples of Jesus. The specific focus of this text is to actualize growth of the fruit of the Holy Spirit. The result is a thorough biblical instruction on how to apply these principles of spiritual growth in our daily lives. Assessment checklists at the conclusion of each chapter provide a frame of reference to reflect on our growth in grace. This book would be a practical follow-up for a sermon series and small group discussions on spiritual growth related to understanding and ripening of our fruit of the Spirit.
