What do you picture when you think of a holy person? Do you imagine someone who knows the right answers to your theological questions and impresses you with their knowledge of the Bible? Theologian Ronni Kurtz challenges us to look beyond holding the correct positions to having the right heart. Ronni points to a focus on the fruit of the Spirit as a means to produce kingdom fruit and become more Christlike. In a Christian culture that is often characterized by harsh words, biting sarcasm, and tearing our brothers and sisters in Christ down, Kurtz calls us to a life defined by the fruits of the Spirit.
