Summary

What are the virtues of conduct that identifies Christ-likeness for the believer? Building off a very basic daily prayer of John Stott’s that concludes by asking God to help one live the fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5:22-23, Chris Wright invites us to live a life in step with the Spirit by cultivating the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. These nine chapters, each addressing a different fruit, conclude with questions for contemplation or discussion. As a maturing believer, growing in Christlikeness can be cultivated by living a fruitful life based on these spiritual benchmarks.
