The Fruit Of The Spirit

Love, like oxygen, is indispensable.

Joy will keep us steady and sensible.

Peace stabilizes the soul when afraid.

Patience is a character no one can upbraid.

Kindness honors everyone, young and old.

Goodness outlasts all seasons, hot or cold.

Faithfulness leads us to God’s secret place.

Gentleness tells all that we know His grace.

Self-control will help us to finish the race.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”
Galatians 5:22-23 BSB

Inspiration is as essential as the air we breathe. What is Ernst like? I tend to live on the serious side of life. After all, my name means serious; maybe it has something to do with that. Who knows? However, if you ask my wife and our 3 children, they will tell you that I can be just as silly and goofy at times. I am a lover and disciple of Jesus Christ. I enjoy nature, gardening, photography, and lots of coffee. In fact, my favorite cup of coffee comes hot with cream, sprinkled with cinnamon, and no sugar. You should definitely give it a try.
