Living Your Promised Land Life Now
According to Pastor Max Lucado, the majority of Christians aren’t living up to their God-given potential. Lucado backs his claim by citing a 2007 surveyi of more than 100,000 members of 1,000 churches in the US: nearly nine out of ten churchgoers admit they feel “stalled” in their spiritual growth and that they aren’t as close to God as they’d like to be. In his latest book, Glory Days: Living Your Promised Land Life Now (Thomas Nelson, September 2015), Lucado gives hope to the stalled-out and shows Christians how to enjoy full throttle living.
“As a follower of God, do you sense a disconnect between the promises of the Bible and the reality of your life?” asks Lucado. “With God’s help you can close the gap between the person you are and the person you want to be.”
Glory Days is based on his life-long favorite book of the Bible, Joshua in the Old Testament. Lucado uses the life of Joshua and the Israelites as a model for modern victorious Christian living. After 400 years in slavery and 40 years wandering the wilderness, the nation of Israel was primed to claim Canaan, the Promised Land. After crossing the Jordan River, they experienced unprecedented victory, changing from hopeless wanderers to hope-filled homesteaders. The walls of Jericho crumbled and enemies fell, just as God promised.
But this isn’t just a story of the past. It’s a hope-filled template for the future. “The book of Joshua dares us to believe our best days are ahead of us. God has a Promised Land for us to take, just like the Israelites,” says Lucado.
