Cultivating Fruits of the Spirit


One of the most beloved and challenging passages of Scripture is found in Galatians, “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.” (5:22 CEB) As Christians, we all aspire to embody these. But how? Just as fruit needs time to grow and ripen, so too do these fruits need nurturing to develop fully inside of us. This material offers a cultivation process through a combination of devotional reflections, life experience, and biblical study. You’ll be encouraged to notice, receive, and offer the fruits of the Spirit in your own context.

We estimate that this will take you 16.5 hours to complete (but not all in one sitting!).
