Item description for You Were Made for More: The Life You Have, the Life God Wants You to Have by Jim Cymbala & Dean Merrill...

Christians face many barriers in their efforts to grow in their faith, many of which are "self-inflicted." The primary goal of this resource is to reveal a deeper understanding of the nature and character of God and how God works in the lives of his followers.

Publishers Description
Jim Cymbala knows something a lot of us miss--that a comfortable, secure life won't produce the satisfaction we long for. How could we feel fulfilled by missing out on the life God has for us?Whether life seems good or not right now, Jim Cymbala believes that God has more for you. In this new book, he'll help you find out how to access the 'more' God intends---more peace, real joy, and a deep sense of purpose. As you open yourself to the 'more' of God, you will also discover your unique work assignment---the one thing God is calling you--and no one else--to accomplish for the sake of his work in the world.You Were Made for More draws a compelling picture of people just like you who are finding that 'more of God' means more influence, more energy, and ultimately more happiness. It will help you picture what your own 'land of milk and honey' might look like---the fuller, richer spiritual place you long to be. Using examples from the Bible, contemporary stories, and experiences from his own life, Jim Cymbala points the way to a richer, deeper life, helping you take hold of everything God wants to give.

From Publishers Weekly
Using the style of extemporaneous sermons, Cymbala, longtime pastor of the Brooklyn Tabernacle and author of Fresh Faith, brings a message of inspiration to readers. God, Cymbala says, wants more for Christians than rote religion or an empty life. The book is dotted with anecdotes of real people who overcame obstacles of poverty and drug addiction by a newfound commitment to Jesus; used their money and skills to support the church; or gave up the security of good jobs to serve others. As such, it will likely encourage some Christians facing life challenges. Although the associations often seem forced and the books trajectory is unclear, Cymbalas use of biblical texts (particularly from Joshua, Judges and Ruth) serve their contemporary purpose. What the book lacks in unity, it makes up for in passion. Cymbalas confidence about defining the nature and wishes of God will not suit every reader, but his commitment to promoting generosity and well-being through the church yields gems of encouragement for people seeking stability and direction.

Reviews - What do customers think about You Were Made For More?

Great sermons for veteran christians  Dec 28, 2009
A great book indeed. However, I would recommend it primarily to those who had read the Old Testament or at least the history between Joshua's fight into Canaan and Saul's annointment as Isreal's first king. Otherwise, the author's other masterpieces, in particular "Fresh Faith", "Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire" will be better alternatives. No matter what, an excellent spiritual food for thought! Highly recommended!

p.s. Below please find some of my favorite passages for your reference.
If I were to spend three days sitting and watching TV for eight hours a day, eating cookies....I should be well rested, right? ..Actually the opposite is true....Muscle tone is developed and energy is created not by doing nothing, but by doing something. This principle holds true in the spiritual realm as well. pg18
We are slow to learn that the importance of any service depends upon God's estimate of it...that the meanest worthy of all devotedness and zeal if the mind and heart of God are upon it, and if He has put it into your hand. pg26
We would do well not to focus on the troubles lined up against us. Instead, we need to celebrate the God who has already demonstrated his power and provision in the past...What a difference it would made if we simply paused once an hour or to say, "I praise you, Lord. You've been so good to me! I give you thanks." Just think how much more joy and peace would be ours all day long. pg37-8
When we run out of things to ask for, we stop praying. If we would stay in God's presence a little longer and listen, he would pour out his heart and mind to us. He would tell us invaluable insights into our circumstances. He would counsel us on some family problme or testy relationship at work. He would reveal whether we should say yes or no to a present opportunity. We need his guidance, and the good news is that he is more than willing to give it if we ask in faith. pg101
You dont need to strive for a master's degree in "flesh methodology." You are far better off focusing on God's power and presence in your life. pg157
God says in essence. "You may not have the right connections - but you have me! I'm your source. I'm the one you need to call." pg169
What the world calls great is often an abomination to God. What the world laughs at - devotion, consecration, faith - is what God calls great. pg184
Another tactic Satan uses to steal our peace is to flood us with anxiety...Phil 4 has a remedy for this, too. too. It says, "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (v.6)...Worry says, "God doesnt care, and so He wont do anything - I'll have to worry it through." Faith says, "God does care, and He and I will work it out together. I'll supply the willingness, and He will supply the pwoer - with that combination we can do anything." We we truly release our anxieties to God, "the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Chris Jesus. (v.7) That is a divine guarantee. pg203-4
very good read  Sep 7, 2009
This was very helpful in understanding the Bible and my purpose. It made it current and easy for me to relate things that I do everyday. I am greatful that there is a book out there to assist me in applying everyday life to the Bible. I have a new appreciation for it.
Great book  Dec 14, 2008
I love Jim Cymbala. I enjoy all of his writing and I always come away inspired and challenged and encouraged.
Quite a Challenge  Sep 17, 2008
You Were Made for More was an inspiring book that makes you examine how you are living. If you are looking for ways to improve your Christian walk, you will want to pick up a copy of this book. The book is filled with true stories of others who overcame life's obstacles by committing their life to Christ and shows how living close do God can change your life. This not only a book of encouragement, but a challenge to live a better life.
Truthfull Page Turner!!!  Aug 20, 2008
This book is truly inspiring and filled with truth. It is written with clarity and it is easy to read with many real life illustrations. Jim Cymbala always comes across with humility and love but does not hold back truth. Great Book and highly recommended. God Bless
