Nine Fruits of the Spirit: Kindness
Robert Strand, one of the most successful authors in the CBA market, believes that an understanding of the qualities of a Christian deserve a close look. To that end, Strand has developed a nine-book study series on the fruits of the spirit, emphasizing not only that a properly-balanced Christian life must include love, joy, peace, patience, etc., but that God will judge us on our willingness to incorporate them into our daily walk. Written in Strand’s famous storytelling style, each book in the series includes study questions and special insights.
Chrestotes (Greek), pronounced khray-stot'-ace, meaning: useful moral excellence of character or demeanor, gracious, gentle, goodness, and kindness.
Kindness is planted in seed form, imputed, and ingrained in the new nature of a new Christian under the code name of "fruit." It's ours to be developed by the work of the Spirit… it's to be shown in all of our human contacts. The goal is for each of us to be as kind to others as Jesus Christ in His mercy has been kind to us. Kindness is a sign of greatness! It is intended to pervade and touch our entire nature. It is to replace the harsh and hardness. Jesus was a kind person, and people are attracted to kindness personified.
But the fruit of the spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control.... - Galations 5:22–23
In these Bible studies from best-selling author Robert Strand, you will learn about yourself and how to relate to others as you gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be in Christ.
