Outlive Your Life


Book Review of Outlive Your Life

“Are you more dinghy than cruise ship?” Is your past lurking like a long shadow you just can’t seem to lose? Do you feel God couldn’t possibly use you without a complete overhaul?

Lose your fear and discover why you’re here while reading Max Lucado’s latest book,Out Live Your Life. Max reminds us “God doesn’t call the qualified. He qualifies the called” and “God changes the world with folks like you.”

Where to begin? Lucado suggests you find your “language” by asking a few questions. What circumstances and age groups move you? With whom do you speak most comfortably – teenagers or the elderly? What breaks your heart most, AIDS patients or girls sold in the sex trade? For those in Christ God promises His Spirit will speak through you. By following our heart and giving God’s Spirit full rein, “we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.” (2 Cor. 1:4 NLT)

Chapters cover topics on sharing hospitality, seeing needs, persecution, humbleness, defending the defenseless, giving God glory, prayer, and the reminder that we show our love for Jesus when we love others. At the end of each chapter is a scripture and prayer. A discussion and action guide is also provided.

Out Live Your Lifeinspires us to make a difference using our lives to touch another—one life at a time. This book will also make a difference to the families and children of the world through World Vision and other ministries of faith-based compassion. How? Max Lucado has donated one hundred percent of his royalties to these ministries. I think I know Lucado’s language—it’s the language of love.
