Life has been crazy in this season of COVID-19, hasn't it? Have you been stretched spiritually? Has your character been tested? What's God doing in your life when it comes to developing the fruit of the spirit?
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things, there is no law" (Galatians 5:22-23).
Pastor Aaron Menikoff joins us to talk about how important this is for all Christians.. but especially pastors. His new book is Character Matters: Shepherding in the Fruit of the Spirit.
Plus, during the 8 am hour, Open Line's Dr. Michael Rydelnik joins us for more Bible Q&A on Mondays with Michael!
