Foreword by Pastor Joseph Prince

W elcome to the family of God! There are probably 1,001 things competing
for your attention every day. So what should your focus be? Well,
Jesus gives us the answer in the Bible.
In Luke 10:3842, when He entered the house of two sisters, one of
them, Mary, sat at His feet and listened to Him. The other, Martha, rushed to
the kitchen and began cooking for Him. Guess who Jesus praised?
He praised Mary.
It might surprise you that Jesus didnt praise Martha for serving and
cooking for Him. Instead, He praised Mary because she focused on
doing the one thing needful. So all you have to do is that one thing and
God will take care of everything in your life, both big and small.
This 31-day devotional has been specially put together to help you
do that one thing to feed on Jesus Word and be strong. It will help
you build a firm foundation for your new life as a Christian. You will
discover how to live a life worth living an abundant, blessed,
fulfilling, stress-free and victorious life!
The Bible says that your future is as bright as the promises of God
and God never breaks His promises! So you can look forward to better
days ahead because God loves you and He wants you to have good
success in every area of your life.
Does that get you excited?
Then lets get started!

Why was this pupil released

presented to the deities on the same
