You might be cold on the inside. And cold on the inside just isn't worth serving to your Lord. That's not what He wants. What He cares about is the warmth inside in your heart. Spiritual Body Guards - #6564 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-personal-power/spiritual-body-guards-6564 2012-03-09T13:45:26-05:00 Christ's body has been broken enough. He said, "This is My body which was broken for you." Don't allow it to be broken any more by a Christian attacking another Christian. Don't throw any punches at someone that Jesus loves very much. You're Not All There - #6428 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-relationships/you-re-not-all-there-6428 2011-08-31T10:53:39-05:00 if you will open up to the rest of the family, you're going to be really rich! Let different Christians challenge you, and balance you, complete you. There is no family member in God's family that you don't need and who doesn't need you, because we're just not all there. Squeezed to Obey - #6415 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-hard-times/squeezed-to-obey-6415 2011-08-12T09:38:09-05:00 Two thousand years ago the Gospel spread around the world by first breaking out of Jerusalem because some people were pushed and squeezed to do it, and right now He might be doing the same thing with you. If you're like my children or you're like the first century Jerusalem Christians, maybe you have to be squeezed to obey. Commitment Insurance - #6351 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-mission/commitment-insurance-6351 2011-05-16T16:58:08-05:00 Box yourself in; put yourself on the line for your commitments to Christ - the ones you really do want to keep in your heart. If you're tired of the ups and downs of spiritual inconsistency, you're hungry for a Christian lifestyle instead of just Christian binges - well, take out some commitment insurance; some brothers or sisters who will help you weigh in regularly. Frozen in Time - #6328 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-relationships/frozen-in-time-6328 2011-04-13T12:12:19-05:00 The early Christians gave Saul a chance and I'm so glad they did. Let's expect the best of each other. Not because we trust each other so much, but because we trust the transforming power of our Father's grace. Stay up-to-date on what God is doing in the life of that person near you, and don't leave them frozen in time. Saturating the Saturated - #6306 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-mission/saturating-the-saturated-6306 2011-03-14T10:22:27-05:00 Where are the churches who will not just aim their resources at watering God's people, but who will risk their buildings and their reputations, and their budgets, and their lives to build a bridge to their lost community? Not just to be a place to take care of the already rescued, but to be a life saving station for their community. Junking Up Your Appetite - #6277 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-hindrances/junking-up-your-appetite-6277 2011-03-11T16:34:01-05:00 God has so much prepared for you; so much He wants to say to you; so many ways He wants to lighten your load. But you come to the table saying, "I'm not hungry." Next time you're reaching for more mental junk food, reach instead for the banquet of the Bible. Spiritually it is the breakfast, the lunch, and the dinner of champions! So Many Flavors - #6278 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-relationships/so-many-flavors-6278 2011-03-11T16:33:30-05:00 You're on God's side when you're against whatever divides His body. It's not all vanilla. Its lots of flavors. It's all ice cream; but it's lots of flavors, and that's what counts. We're all the church. So, celebrate the variety in God's family. There are so many flavors. Christians - a Christian perspective http://biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Acts%2011:25-26&version=NIV 2009-09-10T15:50:52-05:00 Those that call themselves Christians have Antioch to thanks. In Acts we read that Christians were first given the name Christians at Antioch.
