How are Christians called to live their lives? While there are some Christians who stress the importance of upholding all the rules in order to prove they truly are Christians, there are others who reject the idea of rules or traditions entirely, viewing the point of Christian faith as setting them free from the institutionalized religious burden.
The Apostle Paul addresses both of these views by demonstrating a far better and truly Christian way to live our lives—the way of the Spirit of God given to us through Christ. At the heart and soul of Christian living is to 'Walk by the Spirit . . . led by the Spirit . . . live by the Spirit . . . keep in step with the Spirit.' In Cultivating the Fruit of the Spirit, pastor and scholar Christopher Wright invites readers to live a life in step with the Spirit by cultivating the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Divided into nine chapters, each addressing and surveying the depths and breadth of biblical background to each of the words Paul mentions in his fruit of the Spirit, and including questions for contemplation or discussion, Wright's book forwards an ideal resource for group studies and pastors alike.
