Hidden Treasures

The Bible is much more than a book of religion.

Crucified to the World

My desires seem especially to be after weanedness from the world, perfect deadness to it, and that I may be crucified to all its allurements. My soul desires to feel itself more of a pilgrim and a stranger here below, that nothing may divert me from pressing through the lonely desert, till I arrive at my Father’s …house.” –

David Brainerd  18th century American missionary to Native Americans in the New York/Pennsylvania area.  Died at the age of 29.
