Treasure in earthen vessels

I am an earthen vessel
Nothing special
Common at best

Yet inside
A treasure resides
The glory of One who died

To put an end to sin
Who rose again and lives within
This is my faithful Friend

His excellent presence
Frees me from pretense
And I can just love Him

Unashamed to be made of clay
And broken in some places
That He might receive praise

    I usually don’t understand poems and definitely can’t write ’em. But oh, THIS one I think is beautiful!
