Out Live Your Life
You Were Made To Make A Difference
By: Max Lucado

In Out Live Your Life, Max Lucado reminds us we are one of a kind. There is no one else like us we are unique and different. Life passes us by so quickly, before we know it, it will be gone. And will we have made a difference? Have we let God use us?

Max was faced with the following question that caused him to evaluate his life and share the message of this book. “When your grandchildren discover you lived during a day in which 1.75 billion people were poor and 1 billion were hungry, how will they judge your response?”

In this book Max examines the events found in the first twelve chapters of Acts. Through these stories he reminds us Jesus still uses common folk just like you and me for His work. He also reminds us that God never sends us where He hasn’t already been.

The following is a quote from the end of the book: “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?”

My Thoughts: I totally enjoyed this book. It reaches in and grabs your heart and reminds you what is important. He reminds us that God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things. The one thing we are striving to hear, “Well done thy good and faithful servant, Enter in.” I love the way Max parallels stories from the book of Acts with today’s events, making them easy to understand. This book can change your life if you let it! Take a chance, you will not be sorry!
