Paul spoke of laboring among the Galatians that "Christ might be formed in them." Later, he speaks of the development of Christian character in their lives, what he calls the "fruit of the Spirit." The question is, how is Christ like character cultivated in our lives? The contention of this book is that such fruit is produced naturally and organically through abiding in Jesus Christ. The starting point is not Galatians 5, but John 15. There Jesus informs us that it is as we abide in Him that we bear fruit much fruit, fruit that will last. After laying the groundwork of God's grace to us in Christ as the Vine of life, we will see how our Father tends us for the production of fruit in our lives. we will explore each fruit, gaining insight into its makeup and looking at practical application for its outworking in our lives through abiding in Christ.
