Fruit of the Spirit Bible Study

A deeper look into familiar words from the apostle Paul

Stumbling Blocks Bible Study‘But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control...'

These words of Paul from his letter to the Galatians will be familiar to most Christians, though perhaps not the context and the impact they would have at the time.  

Paul wants his readers to let the Spirit be their guide, to put aside the ways of their past and embrace this new and fruitful life.  

These four studies look at the fruit that Paul talks of, and how its various aspects might impact on our lives, and indeed our relationship with others. There are plenty of discussion questions, notes and images to help with understanding these lovely words of Paul.



Fruit of the Spirit


The study  is formatted such that each individual study can be printed off on 2 double-sided sheets of A4 for distribution to a group.

The four studies have enough material to keep a group going for an evening, and include a Visio Divina exercise.
