Going Deeper in the Fruit of the Spirit: Cultivating Godly Character (Paperback)
This book is incredibly organized and very easy to follow along. Readers will have no questions regarding what the author shares with them, but they will be intrigued and most likely ask themselves questions on how to better themselves as followers of God. I like how the author focuses on the nine godly qualities and really expands upon each one. These qualities are truly the essence of God. Mr. Mead's no nonsense and truthful statements challenge the reader's mind and stimulate the soul to ultimately be the fruit God so longs for His children to be.

Cultivating the Fruit of the Spirit
Outside of becoming born-again Christians, growing in godliness is our next greatest challenge. This involves seeking to be the persons God wants all of us to become in our attitudes, behaviors, values and character. The Apostle Paul highlights qualities representing part of God's divine nature in Galatians 5:22-23. This book can be a great resource to steer us in understanding and applying these characteristics.
The author brings out some new and important perspectives as he guides us to think deeper on this topic. Practical principles of interpretation and logic lead us through this process. Going public with our faith is a powerful way to draw attention to our Christian witness. This puts us in the spotlight. Exhibiting these qualities will reflect the scope of the godly qualities present in each of us. This book is written by a seasoned Christian professional counselor who has a unique perspective to this topic.
This book is also a great resource for Bible classes
and sermon material.
