Outlive Your Life By Max Lucado & A Book Giveaway!

Max Lucado challenge's believer's to be more like Christ in his inspiring book, Outlive Your Life.  He reminds the reader of the difficult times that we are living in and the hope that we have.  Christain's are called to share the hope and love of Jesus Christ.  This book reminds me of  a saying I once heard that made a great impression on my life, that the greatest preaching does not come from speaking but through our actions.  By living one's faith.  Max Lucado guides us through the Gospel of Acts and the Days of Pentecost urging us to have that same commitment and like enthusiasm to walk daily in the Spirit.  In his book he states that when you look upon the poor, you are looking at Jesus.  When you look at the needy, you are looking at Christ.  We all can do our part in assisting and showing the Love of  God.  In doing so, our lives are more enriched and those around us will be blest.  Max Lucado stresses that with each one doing our part we can reach a multitude of  souls.  We will be leaving a legeny, making our mark on a world that so badly needs the Truth.  He also forewarns us that it won't be easy  and that we must expect persecution.  The members of the early church put the Lord first in all that they did and God blessed them greatly for their efforts.  I love the urgency that the author puts in his writings as he reminds us that the time for action is now.  I had the great priviledge of reviewing this book for Book Sneeze.  In celebration of  the start of my new blog,  I will be running a giveaway. All you have to do is become a friend of this blog and comment.  The contest runs until Oct. 31, 2010 at Midnight (EST).  Winner will be announced here.  Spread the news!  I will be giving away one copy of  Max Lucado's "Outlive Your Life".
