What kind of fruit are you bearing for Christ?
The apostle Paul uses the term "fruit of the Spirit" to describe traits of the Holy Spirit that should be evident in every Christian. The fruit we bear indicates how much we resemble Jesus, our model and mentor.
The fruit of the Spirit, listed in Galatians 5:22-23, include:
The fruit of the Spirit should characterize each Emmaus or Chrysalis team, Board of Directors or standing committee, and Emmaus or Chrysalis community. It is a good standard by which communities can evaluate their leadership styles and practices.
This booklet looks at each fruit of the Spirit and helps Emmaus and Chrysalis leaders learn how to spread the Spirit-filled attitudes and behaviors. The goal is to for leaders to demonstrate Christlike attitudes and behaviors in such a way that pilgrims/butterflies will desire this fruit and go deeper in their own relationship with Christ.
