As we began to brainstorm living in the environment of MODELING, we asked our team, “What does love look like?” That felt like an appropriate question, since our summary statement for this environment is, “I see Christ in others, and they can see Him in me.” After all, if we are going to see Christ in each other, it will most certainly be by the way we show love—right? But one of our wise writers reminded us that the sign of a Christ-follower is really found when we bear the fruit of God’s Spirit, as detailed in Galatians 5:22–23. Love leads the list, but not to the exclusion of joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
This month’s issue of HomeFront is brimming with fresh ways to offer your fruit to nourish others and invite them to see Christ in the life of your family. This can only be done by the power of God’s Spirit—no amount of trying harder on your part can produce lasting fruit.
