The Character of ChristISBN: 9781800403321
Most experienced Christians are familiar with the Fruit of the Spirit listed in the apostle Paul's Letter to the Galatians where we read of qualities like love, peace, and patience. These are considered both gracious marks of true Christian character and ideals to aim for.
But what do they look like when lived to the fullest?
Jonathan Cruse answers this question by studying the fullness of the Fruit of the Spirit in the life of Christ. In a warm and engaging style, Jonathan examines these godly attributes in the Lord’s example and compares them with our own faltering efforts at holiness – yet in a way that brings hope, not frustration.
We learn that only the power of God himself can truly conform us to Christ. The work is his, not ours — and this is good news for all those who yearn for greater sanctification.
Jonathan Landry Cruse studied theology at Westminster Seminary California. He is an author, hymnwriter, and the pastor of Community Presbyterian Church (O.P.C.) in Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA. Jonathan’s books include What Happens When We Worship, The Christian’s True Identity, and Hymns of Devotion.
