Scripture and the Fruits of the Spirit

Course Description:

Purpose

My vision of God depends upon the state of my character. Character determines revelation. Before I can say “I saw also the Lord,” there must be something corresponding to God in my character. Until I am born again and begin to see the Kingdom of God, I see along the line of my prejudices only; I need the surgical operation of external events and an internal purification.


It must be God first, God second, and God third, until the life is faced steadily with God and no one else is of any account whatever. “In all the world there is none but thee, my God, there is none but thee.”
-Oswald Chambers from My Utmost for His Highest


This course will seek to understand the importance of studying God’s Word, memorizing scripture, practically living out the Gospel. We will dive into how to have a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ and how to walk out the fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Galatians 5:22-23
