Good Tree, Good Fruit

A sermon series on the Fruit of the Spirit

Fruit is good.  We all know from our education in nutrition – from the food pyramid to whatever it is that is used today – that we are supposed to eat fruit.  It produces health – “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”  But not only do we eat fruit to become healthy, it is also true that when we are healthy we produce fruit.  Like a fruit tree that has adequate water, sunlight, and nutrition, we are to bear fruit as Christians.  One of the most beloved scriptures in the New Testament is Paul’s call for us walk in the Spirit, and in so doing to bear fruit for the kingdom.  This preaching series explores what it means for us to bear the fruit of the Spirit.
