Come Thirsty

Come Thirsty
Max Lucado
What a title yet something I’ve come to expect from one of my favorite authors. The sub-title explains the book’s contents a bit better: No Heart Too Dry For His Touch.
Max Lucado’s books are for me, keepers. By keepers I mean there are some books that read and enjoy but not enough to keep on our already crowded book shelves. His style of writing causes one to find a nice quiet place to read and just devour the book in one sitting. I rarely attempt to read any of Max Lucado’s books while in bed because I’d never get to sleep!
First off he describes something that all Christians (the honest ones) experience at one time or another: “dehydrated hearts” that send “desperate messages” causing “snarling tempers” and “growling mastodons of guilt and fear.”
In John 7:37 and 38 we read: “In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.”
And so this is the “living water “that Max Lucado speaks about in “Come Thirsty” which is a book I highly recommend. Following are the chapter titles:

  • The Dehydrated Heart
  • Sin Vaccination
  • When Grace Goes Deep
  • When Death Becomes Birth
  • With Heart Headed Home
  • Hope For Tuckered Town
  • Waiting For Power
  • God’s Body Glove
  • It’s Not Up To You
  • In God We (Nearly) Trust
  • Worry? You Don’t Have To
  • Angels Watching Over You
  • With God As Your Guardian
  • Going Deep
  • Have You Heard The Clanging Door
  • Fearlessly Facing Eternity
  • If God Wrote You A Letter
