Your Life Without Limits is a twenty-two page booklet that Nick Vujicic has written to encourage everyone he can to live with hope, love, and courage so they can pursue their dreams.
Even though Nick mentions God many times in the booklet he classifies himself as ‘spiritual’ rather than a Christian and the booklet has something of a pep-talk feel to it.
Not sure what I was expecting, but it felt like Nick was trying to write it in such a way as to please and help everyone, yet offend no one. As noble a task as that might be, even Jesus offended many. As narrow-minded as it might seem to us, true lasting joy and healing doesn’t come apart from God Himself. If one wants the fruit of the Spirit, one must have the Spirit, and the only way to have the Spirit is through Jesus. HE is still The Way, The Truth, and The Life and the only way to the Father.
As great and necessary an attitude as ‘Hope’ is, without Jesus as the center of that hope, it is a temporary hope that lasts no further than this life, thus is basically an empty hope.
It is a great little booklet in intent and as far as it goes, I’d just like to have seen Nick explain the basis of his hope in such a way that others might find HIM (Jesus) too.
Nick’s life is a living testimony to what he writes, but if all his reader gets from the material is to keep pressing on, and not let go of one’s dreams they have missed Life Himself. Jesus cautioned us about living for this life only. HE asked what good is it to gain the whole earth if one loses his soul? With what will he buy his soul?
If you need encouragement, read Nick’s booklet but please don’t stop there. Seek the source of love, joy, peace, and hope, Jesus. HE has promised to be found if you seek Him with all your heart and the ultimate place to seek Him is in His word, the Bible.
