The Christian life is a battlefield, with the most crucial battles taking place within us. Our greatest need is for help in managing our own nature. Christians may seek several ways to fight their inner battles. They may try to repress their minds and desires, as if they could shut thoughts and feelings up in a secret closet and pretend they are not there. Others may try in their own strength to fight against the enemy that lurks within, but as Paul said in Romans 7:24, “Wretched man that I am! Who will set one free from the body of this death?” Paul said again in Galatians 5:16, “Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh.” It is this walk in the Spirit and fruits produced from Him that Rev. Roy E. Gingrich has written about in this book.
This book gives an outlined commentary on the nine fruits of the Spirit, as stated by the Apostle Paul in Galatians 5:22-23. The very concise treatment of the subject will be very helpful to the Body of Christ.
