Perhaps one of the biggest challenges a Christian faces in life is remaining faithful to God, the study of the Bible and prayer, and their relationships with fellow Christians. In his second letter to Timothy, Paul speaks on perseverance and having a testimony of faithfulness. So how can a Christian live similarly to Paul, being able to say at the end of their life, “I have remained faithful”? In Cynthia Heald’s 31-day devotional, she explores exactly this question.

With chapters discussing topics such as discipline, trusting God’s will, obedient love, God’s grace, prayer, and stumbling blocks to faith, this devotional explores a multitude of subjects ultimately related to living a faithful life.

In each chapter, Heald approaches a topic related to faithfulness with an anecdote, honesty, and practical applications of living faithfully. Additionally, Scripture passages to prompt further study, nuggets of wisdom from great men and women of faith, and a short prayer at the end of every section allow readers to feel engaged and to think more deeply about living a faithful life.

Useful as a tool for daily study and meditation in the Bible, this devotional will provide a month of learning how to answer the call of God to live in a faithful way.
