Book Review - Outlive Your Life by Max Lucado
Outlive Your Life by Max Lucado, Published by Thomas Nelson
How can you outlive your life? How can you transform your faith?
Take a look at Max Lucado's latest book, and you may be surprised at what you find. One thing you learn right off the bat with Max, is what his personal stand on the subject is. As part of the dedication for this book, Max dedicates 100% of his proceeds to benefit children and families through faith based organizations.
Throughout the book Max brings the Old and New Testaments to life, and he shows you how what God said hundreds of years ago applies to my life today. We go along for the ride with the Ethiopian Enuch as he learns about God first hand from Philip. How does this story show us how Philip outlived his life? It shows that by obeying God and sharing both his time and his with an immigrant he outlives his life.
How much affect could your college student be having on someone's life while away at school? There is an interesting twist in Chapter 13 just for you. It shows you how you can be outliving your life before it has fully begun. We are never to young, to old, to poor for God to use us. God knows no limits and has no limits when using you to your fullest.
I found this book to be an eye opening look into my own faith, and how much I 'allow' God to use me. I am very thankful that Jesus did not hinder God's use of Him, and I pray that my prayer turns to action in my everyday life.
I recieved a copy of this book to review from Thomas Nelson Publishers. The opinions expressed in this review are 100% wholly my own.
