As these two young 'digital natives' grow up, they will barely distinguish between online and offline, face-to-face or virtual. They will be unaware of that strange world just 20 years ago, which was almost untouched by digital media. They may never see, except in a museum, such ancient artifacts as typewriters, rotary-dial phones, or film cameras. Their use of digital will be totally instinctual, a seamless extension of minds and fingers. As the years pass, they will effortlessly handle digital tools and platforms yet to be invented. Digital has transformed our societies faster than any previous media revolution. And it is transforming evangelism and discipleship too. Read more... A Bible Study for the New Year http://faithgateway.com/bible-study-for-new-year/ 2013-12-04T06:00:04-05:00 There’s power in words.  Beauty in words.  Grace in words. Words create movement.  They craft nations.  They seal a marriage.  They cast a vision.  They make us laugh.  They focus our attention.  They expand our horizons.  They stimulate our creativity.  And they script our possibilities. My One Word is a project for you to embark […] Slamming the Window On a Refreshing Wind - #6816 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-mission/slamming-the-window-on-a-refreshing-wind-6816 2013-02-25T10:18:27-05:00 Be open to that new wind of the Holy Spirit. "Forget the old things" He says, "and open up to the streams that He wants to make in the desert." Is the Spirit trying to blow through your life, your church, your organization with a bold, new breeze? Well, don't slam the window! New Year...New Management - #6800 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-most-important-relationship/new-yearnew-management-6800 2013-02-01T11:05:51-05:00 The realization that I was never meant to drive my life; that's the first step to beginning a love relationship with God; the very relationship you were made for. And when you admit that and you realize that the mess of our life, the guilt of our life, the shame of our life, the hurt that we've inflicted is because we've taken our life and done it our way instead of His way. You are ready at that point to say, "I need a Savior. I need a Rescuer from this sin." Storm Surge - #6778 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-most-important-relationship/storm-surge-6778 2013-01-03T11:24:04-05:00 Battered and confused, we finally open our soul to the love that we've been looking for all our lives. And we find in Jesus what the Bible calls "an anchor for the soul, firm and secure" (Hebrews 6:19). The howling winds leave us, not lost, but found and finally at peace. In the arms of the One who speaks "Peace, be still!" to the storm in your soul. Take Care of it Before the Price Goes Up - #6753 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-most-important-relationship/take-care-of-it-before-the-price-goes-up-6753 2012-11-28T12:25:24-05:00 The sin bill will never be smaller than today. Victory will never be more within your reach than it is today. The cost is going up! Take care of it before the price goes up any more. I'll Become What You Call Me - #6728 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-personal-power/ill-become-what-you-call-me-6728 2012-10-24T10:58:48-05:00 Tell the people around you what they could be with the strengths that are there, even if you only see a little bit of it. Because by naming it, you can nurture it. When the Kids All Agree - #6633 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-personal-power/when-the-kids-all-agree-6633 2012-06-15T10:33:58-05:00 I've asked young people before, "How many people are in your prayer triplet?" The answer - four. Because Jesus said, "You can see three, but I'm right there." So don't just pray for people. Pray with people. Don't say, "I'll pray for you." Put an arm around them and pray right there. Get a regular team of partners together who agree on some things and be prepared to see mountains moved, and hearts changed, and answers discovered. How to Give a Man a Makeover - #6631 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-relationships/how-to-give-a-man-a-makeover-6631 2012-06-11T10:28:18-05:00 Ruth Graham, Billy Graham's wife, said very wisely: "It is my job to love Billy; it is God's job to change him." That principle applies to sons and fathers to some extent, and certainly to husbands. A woman is a powerful force in changing a man if she makes him feel safe. A man often isn't going to risk changing unless he feels like there's a woman who will love him whether he changes or not. The Light in Your Night - #6622 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-most-important-relationship/the-light-in-your-night-6622 2012-05-29T10:06:11-05:00 All those religious hang-ups, all those lame arguments, all the proud resistance, all the spiritual pride just drops to the ground at the foot of His cross and you finally belong to the One you were made for.
