You Were Made to Make a Difference - Max Lucado

Pastor and author Max Lucado joins us again this morning talking about the concept of "outliving your life" - doing things each and every day that will have an eternal impact that will continue to make a difference long after you are gone.  For some ideas from Max, click here.

This idea - "outliving your life" is the subject of an upcoming book from Max and here's what Max has to say:

These are difficult days in our world’s history. 1.75 billion people are desperately poor, natural disasters are gouging entire nations, and economic uncertainty still reigns across the globe. But you and I have been given an opportunity to make a big difference. What if we did? What if we rocked the world with hope? Infiltrated all corners with God’s love and life? We are created by a great God to do great works. He invites us to outlive our lives, not just in heaven, but here on earth. Let’s live our lives in such a way that the world will be glad we did.

And is if a book wasn't enough, this Fall Max will be hitting the road sharing from his heart and also sharing the stage with Michael W. Smith, Third Day and Toby Mac on The Make a Difference Tour 2010.  For more on the tour (tickets went on sale last week), go here.

Sometimes I believe we forget that we can make a difference everyday in our own community.  Don't get me wrong, I believe in missions and our church is a mission driven church.  The difference I love to make everyday is in the heart of hurting marriages.  As a woman who has been divorced and comes from a family of divorce, God has grabbed my heart for this issue.  My husband and I continue to watch God rescue marriages for His glory and therefore change a generation!  We love the loads of time we invest in marriages and the stories continue to change our lives and our marriage.  Around us everyday are hurting people in marriages, even those sitting next to us at church are crying out.  I ask God to open my heart up to those cries everyday.  May I never forget the power of God's hand upon my life when I live in the middle of His will making an eternal difference in the lives of married people and their families.

I read this article in our local newspaper and wanted to share it with all of you at K-Love. It has inspired me to make more of a difference in people's lives.
