Becoming Like Jesus- Cultivating the Fruit of the Spirit


God wants to fill the world with people who look like Jesus, “little Christs” as CS Lewis liked to call them. He does this by giving us his Spirit and helping us to grow the Jesus–like qualities of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self–control. Over the next four Wednesday afternoons, we’re going to be thinking about some of these “fruit of the Spirit” and how cultivating them means we’ll become more like Jesus.

Christoph Ebbinghaus and Stephen Kerr will be sharing with us over the next few weeks as we consider this fruit the Spirit of God wants to grow in our everyday lives.
