With Outlive Your Life, Max Lucado comes in with another sure-fire winner. He takes the reader through the book of Acts, but he blends it with today. He shows the reader how to apply the lessons of the Apostles from many years ago, to our lives. It was a sucker punch. Virtually every Christian in the world probably feels they could be doing more to spread the love and Grace of Jesus Christ. Many of us feel we just don’t have time. Many of us say we have too many things to do. Many of us are wrong. It’s time to step out of our clamshells and quit forgetting the bread. We are not alone on this planet, and we are not the sum total of our number of friends on Facebook. We don’t get credit for clicking “like” on a charity. It’s time for Christians of all persuasions to get off the couch and get some skin in the game.
I’ve long been a fan of Max Lucado’s work. I’ve read many of his books, and some have stuck with me. I think this is another that will stick with me. I’m torn because on one hand I want to share my copy with everyone I know and on the other I want to read it a hundred more times.
After reading this book, I had to ask myself why don’t I do more?
