Great Read for the "Ordinary" Christian 25 Sep 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for my mother. This is her review of the book: Very encouraging and insightful- as expected when reading Max Lucado books. He gives the reader hope that being "ordinary" matters to God and that he can use us for greater things, even though we sometimes feel insignificant. I hope this is one of many more Max Lucado books.

To Make His Mine 9 Oct 2011
By Mac D. Culver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The masterful Max Lucado clearly touches hearts and souls as he seeks to make God's story my own. The power of the Gospel comes through clearly, lovingly and forcefully in every chapter. Some chapters took longer to read, however, because I was wiping tears from my eyes. An amazingly powerful book that draws one into the heart of God.

Very Enlightening 27 Oct 2011
By Clay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought the ebook and read it, now I am going to buy the regular book because there are many things I want to underline for future reference. It is an excellent book and it explains some things that I probably knew, but never thought about. I would recommend this book for anyone.

My Favorite Max Lucado Book 12 Oct 2011
By Rebecca of Amazon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
"Make his story your story, and your story takes on a happy ending."

Max Lucado excels at descriptive writing and has a real talent for recreating Bible stories so they have a much more human appeal. In this book he begins gently with a cozy story of his grandmother sharing her stories and pictures with him as a child. He them makes the point that we all need to know where we come from and explains how we can't find out our story from just looking inside ourselves.

While Satan gets one chapter - mostly a warning to Christians, Jesus gets the rest of the book. Max Lucado writes with such love and respect you can't help loving Jesus even more.

While this book is mostly serious there were a few moments when Max got a giggle out of me. The stories he tells also made me long to be, as he says, "a conduit of extraordinary grace."

What a beautiful book. This is by far my favorite Max Lucado book and I've read quite a few. This book has a comforting message that will give Christians hope and a longing for their real home in heaven.

When His Becomes Yours

By Max Lucado

When I open my heart to God He will rewrite the story of my life. Everyone wants to know where they came from and that is why God gave us His story - the Bible. The key message to the entire Bible is found in John 3:16 - God loved and He gave to the world, He loved and gave to us, His Son so that we could experience Him. He gave us a way out the sinful life if we choose to make His story ours.

Jesus was born into our everyday world so that we would be able to relate to Him. The Bible is His story but Satan wants to keep us from reading it. The devil is a divider and he divided humanity from God with the temptation in Eden. But God in His love planned a way to bridge this divide - His Son Jesus Christ.

When we face times of trial and testing by Satan we are being strengthened and purified for our life with God. Satan attacks our weaknesses so we must take them before God for strengthening. He has given us His Word - the Bible to strengthen and protect us in our battle against Satan.

Everyone longs for home, but our home is not earthly it is heavenly and our life is our journey home to our Father. But often times we try to change the route that God has given us to get there. We sin and try to make up for it by creating a "work system". The cross and forgiveness are the way, but instead we take the detour of work over God and His story of redemption. Jesus took our sins on Himself so we have no need to look for detours of works, we just need to believe and accept what God has given us - redemption, forgiveness, and His righteousness.

What the world views as our final chapter - death is but the introduction to our life when we've made God's story our story! Jesus' victory over death is our victory and our path to everlasting life.

When we believe God shares His power with us, but there are times when we don't draw on His Spirit. When we are drawing on His Spirit we are filled with the Fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5:22-23. We must wait for the Spirit's leading when we go blindly on our own way we run into blocked paths and closed doors. God is telling us, "No!" and when He says no it is for our good protecting us from something we can't see or so that we may do something greater.

Through every difficulty or challenge we face God is working it to our betterment. We must remember that when we reach our home - Heaven sin will be no more, pain and sickness will be a forgotten memory as we are made new!
