My Riches in Christ

by Quentin S Clingerman

My riches in Christ Jesus
Immeasurable and pure

Rich in love,depths unfathomable
Rich in grace beyond degree
Rich in mercy wider than the widest sea

The richness of love unconditional
The richness of grace fully provided
The richness of mercy for all my waywardness

Riches beyond poverty or wealth
I am rich beyond measure

I like your units of wealth-measurement and do so identify with it. Grateful for the love of the Father who accepts and loves even the darkest parts of me. Thanks for this, my friend.

Riches and richness - two words used most effectively here - I can feel the depth of your faith and I like the contrast with the usual monetary use of the word. Thank you, Que.

wealth works both ways. it is perfectly illustrated here, to see something as rich is to be seen equally as rich by that something which is deemed rich, by virtue that when one qualifies something as rich, one is richly qualified in return by that something.

I agree with all the previous comments Quentin. You have a unique way of capturing our relationship with Jesus, and in this case, infinite richness that goes way beyond any monetary value.

This is such a wondrously wise and loving piece! Jesus loves us for who we are and not who we've been - He'll clean up all of the ugly parts with His pure blood. Making us new creatures. AMEN!
