Shining a light on the weekly Bible Lessons published in the Christian Science Quarterly® 

Spirit

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

In an example of outreach to the scattered Christian churches, Paul encourages the Galatians to turn from the “works of the flesh” and be “led of the Spirit” (see vv. 18–21 ). The virtues of Spirit are assured as “fruit” to all who follow Christ. 

The Bible Lessons serve as weekly study guides as well as the sermon in every Christian Science Sunday church service. Learn more at BibleLesson.com
