We are all looking for happiness, but too often we are afraid to risk a little to find it. The comfortable and familiar beckon and ensnare. God whispers, “Step out in trust.” Yet we shrink back in the shells we’ve carefully constructed. Shelters that let us exist but never take a chance. Walls that prevent hurt but also keep us from experiencing the “land of the living.”
Live Fully Alive
In his latest book, Fully Alive, author and comedian Ken Davis challenges us to let go of our inhibitions and apathy, to step out in faith and begin to live life to the fullest.
- Quotes that make us think and re-evaluate life as we know it: “Happiness and fulfillment come from glorifying Him even when there’s sacrifice involved.”
- Quotes that charge us to engage the power of the cross to affect dramatic and permanent change in our lives: “One of the key aspects of knowing Christ and His power is to completely trust in the forgiveness He offers.”
- Quotes that inspire and give us hope that change is possible: “The power to live fully alive comes from knowing Christ better.” (Phil. 3:10)
- Quotes that convict: “… earthly life is not a waiting room for eternal life.”
This is a book everyone needs to have on their book shelf, no matter what stage in life they are—to be pulled out whenever we are tempted to let life just happen to us, to be encouraged to set aside our inhibitions and
glorify God by living fully alive!
To get back on that sled and squeal with delight as we fly down the hill.
