Forever. Off duty? As the face of Jesus to people whose eternity depends on believing in Him? God, help me to always - always - leave the light on for them. Whatever-It-Takes Love - #6634 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-most-important-relationship/whatever-it-takes-love-6634 2012-06-15T10:35:21-05:00 It may have looked like Roman soldiers were taking Jesus' life, but He said He was giving His life to pay for all the sinning you and I have ever done. He is the Son of God. No one can take His life. He gave it for you. Pardoning Turkeys - #6538 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-most-important-relationship/pardoning-turkeys-6538 2012-02-02T10:12:48-05:00 You know, you have to accept the pardon Jesus died to give you. You can ignore it, you can postpone it. Many do. You can choose to keep running your own life. You can try to depend on your religion or your goodness. But then, you'll pay a death penalty you don't have to pay. Jesus already paid it. Pardoning Turkeys http://hutchcraft.com/blogs/ron-hutchcrafts-blogs/pardoning-turkeys 2011-11-21T11:05:56-05:00 Many to whom God has granted this "act of grace" called a pardon - based on the death of His Son for them - refuse to accept it. They either ignore it, postpone it, or choose to keep running their own life or depend on their religion and their goodness. Wired for Worship - #6425 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-most-important-relationship/wired-for-worship-6425 2011-08-26T11:00:11-05:00 Let me recommend that we begin our day getting overwhelmed by Jesus Christ; focusing all of our worship-ness, our fan mail so to speak, on Him. Evaluate...maybe are you a little too excited about some earthly star? See, you're wired for worship, but save it for the only One who deserves it. The Myth of the Honorary Chairman - #6398 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-most-important-relationship/the-myth-of-the-honorary-chairman-6398 2011-08-08T11:45:14-05:00 Jesus paid with His life, not to have the title of Lord, but the have the authority. Authority that is daily expanded through giving Him new ground from that 24-hour period of your life. You make Him Lord of the stuff of that day and you do it again tomorrow.

The Beautiful Truth About Life's Ugliest Words - #6102 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-most-important-relationship/the-beautiful-truth-about-lifes-ugliest-words-6102 2010-06-01T16:18:43-05:00 Great faith can trigger miraculous outcomes, even when you're living one of life's ugliest words. And great faith - the kind that amazes Jesus - is faith that lives as if Jesus is going to decide this! Because, for a child of God, life's ugly words do not have the final word. Jesus does!

And whatever has come into your life has had to pass through His hand first. He's either sent it or allowed it. And He loves you and He knows what you need and what you can handle, so long as He is at the wheel.

Now that's a fundamental secret of getting things done when you pray! Those who understand that mountain-moving faith is about realizing who's in charge are people who pray with power and who get results.
