But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Growing More Like Jesus....what does that phrase bring to the forefront of your mind? When I hear the phrase "Growing More Like Jesus" I think of my walk with Him and how I could improve it. A Young Woman's Walk with God by Elizabeth George has indeed improved my walk with God. Through this book, God has touched my heart and has really started to make me think about my walk with Him, and my role as a young woman. Do my words, actions, beliefs, cloths, attitudes, etc. glorify God?
In this book Elizabeth George goes through the Fruits of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control) and studies Jesus and the fact that He had every one of these qualities in abundance. She also talks about the fact that we, as young christian woman, should also be a shining example of these virtues. Here is an excerpt from the back cover of the book;
