The Peace of Jesus
Jesus said we would know His followers by their fruit. Although it probably does not mean only the "Fruit of the Spirit" that is the very best way to judge a person's growth in maturity as a Christian. In our book, Listening for Heaven's Sake, we include the chart above that allows us to assign a number on a scale from 1 to 10 to indicate how well we are doing on developing the fruit mentioned in Galatians 5.
On my November 29 post I mentioned that peace or anxiety can rise up from the deep heart and leave us with either positive or negative fruit. That fruit is easily discerned by others. The way to fertilize the Fruit of the Spirit is to "Be renewed with the mind of Christ."
My book, Power Christian Thinking tells how.
Take a look at the chart and see how you are doing.
