DAY 4 – I never thought I’d own a Bible made of goatskin leather, let alone a Bible published by Cambridge University Press, known for its craftsmanship since 1591.
Blessed by my church, I was granted my own Cambridge Bible, just by going to Church every Sunday (I missed one though!) last year. I took hold of it yesterday and I still couldn’t believe I own one!

This awarded book by the Cathedral of Praise is something I consider an “investment”. At least in terms of the spiritual kind.
These days wherein Christianity— talking or even playing Christian songs seem to be a taboo, I consider myself blessed in establishing a relationship with my Savior.
Because in as long as I live, I will be a work in progress and I’ll say it over and over again — I’m far from being a saint. That saying to the world that I am a Christian is not as simple as it seems. My benchmark of life is “Christ” and try as I might, I couldn’t equate His kindness. I feel no amount of good deed I do will ever surpass the sacrifice Jesus has done for me. Or for the world, for that matter.
But for what it’s worth, there’s a satisfaction that He recognizes me as His own. And I hope He would ’til my last breath.
Thus, my need for His Word.
…that being recognized for attending Sunday services to listen and learn from His Word is a big deal for me. I hope this book won’t be just any other paper weight or dust collector in my room, but something more — LIVING, NOURISHING, COMFORTING PRESENCE just by talking to Him every day.
33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
