That I may gain Christ

He is altogether lovely.

May my meditation be sweet to Him. ~ My beloved is...chief among ten thousand. ~ A chief cornerstone, elect, precious, and he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame. ~ You are fairer than the sons of men; grace is poured upon your lips. ~ God...has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name. ~ It pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell.

Whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory.

I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith.
