”Yes, God wants us to bear fruit.But what kind of fruit are we called to bear? We’re called to bear the fruit of Christian character, Christian conduct, and Christian converts! First, God wants us to bear the fruit of Christian character. Galatians 5:22-23 describes the fruit produced in us by the Spirit Christ gives us.
