Grace

Max Lucado
Also Available In

Grace.

We talk as^though we understand the term. The bank gives us a grace period. The seedy politician falls from grace. Musicians speak of a grace^note. We describe an actress as gracious,^a dancer as graceful. We use the word^for hospitals, baby girls, kings, and premeal prayers. We talk as though we^know what grace means.

But do we^really understand it? Have we settled for wimpy grace? It politely occupies a^phrase in a hymn, fits nicely on a church sign. Never causes trouble or demands^a response. When asked, "Do you believe in grace?" who could say no?

^^

Max Lucado^asks a deeper question: Have you been changed by grace? Shaped by grace?^Strengthened by grace? Emboldened by grace? Softened by grace? Snatched by the^nape of your neck and shaken to your senses by grace?

^^

God's grace^has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A white-water, riptide,^turn-you-upside-downness about it. Grace comes after you. It rewires you. From^insecure to God secure. From regret riddled to better-because-of-it. From^afraid to die to ready to fly.

^^

Grace is^the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off.

^^

Let's make^certain grace gets you.??

Grace.

We talk as though we understand the term. The bank gives us a grace period. The seedy politician falls from grace. Musicians speak of a grace note. We describe an actress as gracious, a dancer as graceful. We use the word for hospitals, baby girls, kings, and premeal prayers. We talk as though we know what grace means.

But bestselling author Max Lucado says we've settled for a wimpy grace, a goldfish grace that sits in a bowl on the shelf and never causes trouble or demands a response.

Now available as a trade paperback, Lucado's bestselling book reminds readers that there's more to grace than we've ever imagined. In this cornerstone message of Lucado's ministry, he challenges readers to not only receive grace but also to be changed by grace. Shaped by grace. Strengthened by grace. Emboldened by grace. Softened by grace. Snatched by the nape of their neck and shaken to their senses by grace.

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.
