    This will change your life if you let it!

    Out Live Your Life By Max Lucado I was drawn to read the book Out Live Your Life by Max Lucado because that is what I want to do and intend to do with my own life. I want to live my life in a way that will leave a legacy of love and Christian faith that others may see, understand and desire to do the same. To "Pay it forward" and out live their lives as well. In this book Max Lucado reaches into the Word of God to show us who we are in Christ. Why we have been created and how God has equipped us to do what we have been created for. In God's word's we will learn how to be "a doer of the Word and not just a hearer." Max explains how very "individual" we are. We are created in God's image yet we are unique and there is none like us. We have been given a life. We did not ask for one but we have it, a first day, a last day, and any number of days in between. Our days are accelerated and as each one goes by it becomes one of the good old days, a part of our past. And if we are not careful our shot at life will pass us by. Reading this book will change your life if you let it. You will not live and die and never ask why, rather you will grab each moment and not let your fleeting vapor of life pass by without having left something behind for others to "pay it forward." Max shows us that God wants us to be His hands and His feet, loving and caring for His people with His heart. He compares stories in the bible with people of today and yesterday and he tells how they out lived their lives by doing for others things that change the world, one obedient heart at a time. If you let this book change your life, you will then be able to reach out and change the world as you "Out Live Your Life."

    Another great book from Max Lucado

    I recently received the book Out Live Your Life by Max Lucado in the mail to review from booksneeze.com. I really enjoyed reading this book. Like several other books from Max Lucado, it was well written and easily understood. It opens your eyes and brings a new perspective on serving others.



    "None of us can help everyone. But all of us can help someone. And when we help them, we serve Jesus.

    Who would want to miss a chance to do that?"



    The stories are all very touching and a good reminder that we are all created to make a difference in this world. One person can not change the world, but it can cause a chain reaction.



    We should all hope that we can live our lives in this manner.



    I would recommend this book to everyone. It is a good reminder that God uses each and everyone of us from the poor and stricken to the rich and famous. We are all instruments in Gods hands.

    Outlive your life

    NYT best- selling author, Max Lucado's newest book, Out Live Your Life, is a book that will reach and inspire even the most secularlized, discouraged or hardened audience. In his usual fashion, Lucado elevates even the most common, ordinary, humble and mundane people and circumstances into the the most extraordinary, significant and noble of possibilities. No matter what station in life that you hold, no matter how discouraged, sick or ill that you feel, this book empowers the reader with purpose and motivation. Lucado appeals to the human need for purpose and he delivers satisfactory answers and solutions. This book is sure to appeal to the the secular reader as well as the bible believer.

    Lucado brings to life, the stories and heroes of the bible and relates them to common, ordinary human circumstances. He shows vividly in animated language, the human side of the apostles- highlighting their weaknesses and shortcomings.
    One issue to explore is Lucado's choice of examples of modern day heroes. Perhaps this is an attempt to facilitate the ecumenical movement, whereby one focuses on commonalities rather than theological differences to unify different religious/ Christian denominations. Lucado chose two unique personalities to illustrate the power of a single individual- one is a fictitious character named Father Benjamin and the other is a real life hero of faith, Father Damien, a Roman Catholic priest from Belgium and member of the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I commend as well as question his choice of examples. First of all, no one could doubt that Father Damien's sacrifice of his life for the lepers of Molokai was an heroic sacrifice of faith to the glory of God. Nevertheless, as a Catholic Priest, in the order of the Sacred Hearts, a religious order based on the vision of Henriette Aymer de Chevalerie in the late 1700s, whose mission is to mission to spread the message of God's unconditional love as manifested through the Hearts of Jesus and Mary as well as finding God's mercy through the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Although the order has been responsible for the improvement and edification of countless lives, here on earth, the issue here is that Father Damien was part of a religious order that promoted the adoration of the "Blessed Sacrament" as well as Mary- who is often referred to as the "Blessed Mother/ Queen of Heaven" in the Catholic Church. Father Damien's works were heroic, but what about the theology and teaching he represented? Should that be considered as well? He helped countless lives, but what about their souls? I have no doubt that there are genuine Catholics written in the Book Of Life, who have recieved salvation through faith in Jesus Christ- of which Father Damien I am sure is one of them. But the full scope of the teaching represented by Catholic Priests must also considered as well. Otherwise, what is the distinction between these choices and any other historical or secul
