Publisher's Description

Christians are commanded to grow. Once we are saved, spiritual fruit should be a natural byproduct. If the fruit isn't' there, the growth we are supposed to display is not happening. Yet many Christians find it difficult to bear fruit because their branches are weak 0 the old patterns of sin and bad habits creep back in and choke off the growth that should be taking place.

So what do you do when your spiritual fruit isn't what it should be?

You do what you would with the fruit of any type of tree: free it from what inhibits its growth by finding weak branches and cutting them off.

Here Jay Adams unpacks the teaching of jesus in Matthew 5 and shows us how to use the principle of radical amputation to develop spiritual fruit, putting on holy patterns of living by putting off our sinful ones.
