One of the most important things we can in our walk with God is to study the scriptures. Growing deeper in God’s Word helps us to grow closer to God. It helps build our faith and helps us to have wisdom. It helps us to make proper judgments based on the way God sees things. It helps us to witness to others and defend the faith. Studying the scriptures gives us the knowledge do the work of God. 2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. Another reason to study the scriptures is so that we can be ready to give an answer to others. 1 Peter 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: The Bible itself tells us to study the scriptures. John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. Acts 17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. Studying the scriptures gives us the knowledge to...Read More

It not only covers what the fruit of the Spirit are, but also covers why you need the fruit and how you get the fruit. It also shows how to keep the fruit in your life. Jerry Bridges shows from scripture that taking on God’s character is essential to our fruitful life.
