Refiner’s Fire by treasuringCHRIST on Mar 5, 2013May this song be the prayer of our hearts: Purify my heart Let me be as gold and precious silver Purify my heart Let me be as gold, pure gold Refiner’s fire My heart’s one desire Is to be holy Set apart for You, Lord I choose to be holy S...



Comfortable? by treasuringCHRIST on Feb 28, 2013It is sad that many Christians are joining a church or staying in a church because they feel comfortable there.

Killing My Pet by treasuringCHRIST on Dec 11, 2012Before you continue reading this, think of one sin in your life you are finding it hard to let go of or turn away from.

(Un)Holy Sex and the Holy Spirit by treasuringCHRIST on Dec 3, 2012Why is sex outside the context of marital intimacy evil? We are in Christ. Christ is in us.
