About

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—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.

The Resources for Biblical Living booklet series addresses a wide range of practical life issues in a straightforward, down-to-earth, and most of all, biblical manner.

Endorsements

“Explaining ‘radical amputation’ and illustrating it with two outstanding examples, Adams uses his God-given spiritual gifts and his biblical counseling experience to once again give us a practical resource to help us completely turn from our sin. This is such a good little booklet that I am praying the Lord will use it to help many others. . . . I know that I, for one, will use it with my counselees.”

—Martha Peace, biblical counselor and author of Damsels in Distress
