Why? He let God break his heart over his sin. He responded emotionally to the stabbing pain in his heart. Do you? Spiritual disaster begins when you begin to quench the Spirit; you ignore the call that should wake you up. The Trouble With Microwave Believers - #6723 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-most-important-relationship/the-trouble-with-microwave-believers-6723 2012-10-17T12:52:01-05:00 You know, you could be becoming a microwave believer. 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. Where Do I Start Cleaning? - #6696 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-personal-power/where-do-i-start-cleaning-6696 2012-09-10T10:23:25-05:00 The history of revival throughout the church tells us that whenever God's people start hating the sin in their own lives, tens of thousands of people start finding Christ. So, where do I start cleaning with the mess inside my own heart? Stone Wall Heroes - #6678 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-personal-power/stone-wall-heroes-6678 2012-08-17T10:49:46-05:00 At Stonewall Jackson's battle, the troops were ready to run, but one man standing gave others the courage to do the same. If you'll be that person, you can have that same kind of effect. You have to stand under the pressure, stand under the attack, you refuse to move, you refuse to compromise. The Bible Wears a Blindfold - #6650 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-personal-power/the-bible-wears-a-blindfold-6650 2012-07-06T13:21:02-05:00 To rightly represent a holy God in this anything-goes world, we have to always be sure of the Bible's ways of life and stand on those. What Wants to Bite You - #6558 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-hindrances/avoid-what-wants-to-bite-you-6558 2012-03-01T12:20:44-05:00 The pull of temptation may be so strong on you because you haven't burned your bridges to it. You want to beat it? Then you have to avoid the places where it is, the people who draw you into it, the props that get you into it. You can't flirt with sin; it's a vicious dog! Pedal fast! The Bible says, "Flee from it." Take a route that's nowhere near the opportunity to do that sin. Relief From Fit-In Pressure - #6282 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-hindrances/relief-from-fit-in-pressure-6282 2011-03-11T16:25:42-05:00 My son summed it up one day. He said, "Dad, life is so much simpler when you've decided to be totally for Christ." Now, he's right. Starting now, why don't you verbally, clearly let it be known where you stand? And pretty soon they'll back off, and they'll expect you to be what you said you'd be like. That's the very best relief you can buy from the pressure to fit in. Revive Our Hearts: The Sin of Tolerance--Revelation: Thyatira http://reviveourhearts.com/topics/series.php?series=298&topic_name=Church 2010-08-20T14:50:59-05:00 As Nancy explores Jesus’ letter to the church in Thyatira, she warns us of the danger of compromising both sound doctrine and holy living. Plus, she reminds us that as believers, God calls us to be separate from the world and helps us grapple with what it means to engage the culture but live in a way that brings glory to Him. Revive Our Hearts: Compromising Truth--Revelation: Pergamum http://reviveourhearts.com/topics/series.php?series=297&topic_name=Church 2010-08-20T14:49:49-05:00 As Nancy explores Jesus’ letter in Revelation to the church in Pergamum, she shows us just how embracing the world’s standards rather than following Christ puts us at risk of losing our very character and identity as the people of God. Jesus knows what we’re up against and will give us the grace and strength to hold fast to our faith in Him. Contextualization without compromise. Tell the gospel so it makes sense http://internetevangelismday.com/blog/archives/1770 2010-08-09T16:46:27-05:00 Valuable explanation from Pastor Tullian Tchividjian of the strategic importance of biblical contextualization. The ministry of Jesus clearly demonstrates this sort of contextualization. Today’s popular culture also offers us multiple entry points for effective evangelism.
