Out Live Your Life: You Were Made to Make a Difference by Max Lucado

4 out of 5 stars.
It starts with the statistics. 1.75 billion stuck in poverty. 1 billion hunger each day. 2 million children trapped in the sex trade industry. 10 million die each year in Africa of preventable diseases. 2% of the world’s grain harvest would end the problem of hunger and malnutrition around the world, if only it were shared.

Someone should do something, right? Perhaps it should be us.

Max Lucado is a favorite of mine. He brings forgotten stories to life. He senses the irony, seizes the blessings, and simplifies the complex in ways that motivate and inspire his readers. This book is no exception. Spotlighting the transformation that takes place in the lives of the 11 apostles in the book of Acts, Out Live Your Life shares story after story of people who laid everything they had to offer out on the table. When people are able to see past themselves, into the souls of those that God brings across their path, He is able to do amazing things through us. In spite of us. Because of us.

Celebrating 25 years as an author, Max devotes this book, along with all proceeds, to World Vision and other worldwide mission fields that demonstrate minute by minute how to reach out to the poor, the lost, and hopeless. He inspires his readers to outlive their own lives by doing something that betters the life of someone else. God is always ready and willing to change the world. He just needs volunteers to do it.
“Therefore, accept each other just as Christ accepted you so that God will be given glory.” Romans 15:7 (NLT)

Those are the words of God. Not Max.

I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze blogger review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
