The Fruit of Being in Christ

If a person is truly in Christ, then there will be some evidence of it in their life. If the Spirit of God lives within a person, then He produces His fruit and He indwells us with spiritual gifts to be used in service for God’s glory. Throughout Scripture, we see many statements to the…

Anchored in Christ Functionally
