Confusion….

As a part of my Bible college education, I had to write lesson plans.  In one class, it was required to write a lesson nearly every week, and evaluate other classmates’ lessons.  One of the lessons I wrote was on the Fruit of Spirit: Galatians 5:22-23 (ESV) 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, […]
