Walk by the Spirit: Spiritual Fruit and Gospel Fiber


It’s true that fruit and fiber are good for our bodies, but in this course, discover why spiritual fruit and gospel fiber are necessary for the soul! Dr. Joey Dodson discusses walking by the Spirit according to the context of Paul’s letter to the Galatians. He will lead you on an exploration of the depth and breadth of the freedom we have in Christ and what we have access to as a result of that freedom. You will examine the context of the fruit of the Spirit passage and discover how this context sheds new light on the beloved text. Finally, Dr. Dodson will help you delve into the passages on the works of the flesh and the fruit of the Spirit and explore how the fruit of the Spirit is meant to be lived out within the body of Christ.
