Are you a dry sponge? Edgy and rigid? Ineffective? Would you like to be softened up some? Would you like to be more useful in the hands of the One who made you? Then come to the well, says Max Lucado. ^Scientists assure us that humans can't live without water, and we don't even attempt it. But survival without God? Oh, we sip, we taste, but we're prone to go extended times without a good drink from the well of the Lord. And we pay the price for doing so. We shrink. We coil and re-coil against the world... organs harden... hearts harden. ^In this renewing and life-giving book, Max Lucado, leads us to the four essential nutrients needed by every soul. ^Come to the cross and know that your sins are pardoned and your death is defeated. Receive Christ's energy and believe that you can do all things through the one who gives you strength. Receive his Lordship, knowing that you belong to him and that He looks out for you. Receive his love and feel confident that nothing can separate yo
What Image Best Describes Your Heart? A Water-Drenched Kid in Front of an Open Fire Hydrant? Or a Bristled, Desert Tumbleweed? You're acquainted with physical thirst. Stop drinking and see what happens. Coherent thoughts vanish, skin grows clammy, and vital organs shut down. Deprive your body of necessary fluid, and it will tell you. Deprive your soul of spiritual water, and it will tell you. Dehydrated hearts send desperate messages. Snarling tempers. Waves of worry. Growing guilt and fear. Hopelessness. Resentment. Loneliness. Insecurity. But you don't have to live with a dehydrated heart. God invites you to treat your thirsty soul as you would treat your physical thirst. Just visit the Well and drink deeply: Receive Christ's work on the cross, The energy of his Spirit, His lordship over your life, And his unending, unfailing love. He Does the Hard Part. All you do is ask. There is no spiritual "to do" list for you to tackle, no inventory of rules and regulations. Just drink. Let Christ be the water for your soul. Come thirsty, and drink the water of life.
Max Lucado Have you been sipping out of a swamp? Drinking the deluge of life? There's stuff in that water that you were never meant to drink. Pills? They may numb the pain, but they can't heal a heart. Money? Sure, it can buy what your body needs for survival, but it can't supply what your soul needs. Religion? It may pacify, but it can never satisfy. The busyness of church may hide a thirst, but only Christ quenches it. Don't you long to flush out the fear... anxiety...guilt? You can. All are welcome. You don't have to be rich, religious, or successful; you simply need to follow the instructions on what-or better, who-to drink. Him. For the sake of those who need your love, hydrate your soul! Heed your thirst. Drink deeply and often. And out of you will flow rivers of living water. The Prayer of the Thirsty Lord, I come thirsty. I come to drink, to receive. I receive your work on the cross and in your resurrection. My sins are pardoned, and my death is defeated. I receive your energy. Empowered by your Holy Spirit, I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength. I receive your lordship. I belong to you. Nothing comes to me that hasn't passed through you. And I receive your love. Nothing can separate me from your love.

Teaching Ministry of Max Lucado
In 1991, Max Lucado was presented the idea of developing a radio broadcast that focused solely on Jesus Christ. As a result, the vision for UpWords Ministries was born. Since that time, 'UpWords, with Max Lucado' has changed from a 15 minute, daily feature to an inspirational one minute message. Today, UpWords is heard in over fourteen hundred radio markets around the world.
Along with the inspirational radio program, UpWords provides a comprehensive library of full-length CDs as well as many downloadable audio files of Max's weekly sermons delivered to his home church in San Antonio, Texas.
UpWords exists for the sole purpose of encouraging others to take one step closer to Jesus Christ. The staff of UpWords is prayerfully dedicated to this purpose and is constantly humbled to see God's hand at work.
