If you tell the truth and do all things as Jesus would do them, the light will only show your authenticity as it did Samuel's. It can be said of those who live without secrets and without deception, "The closer people get, the better you look."

To help people go there. 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. THE S.A.F.E. Site http://litmin.org/safe.php 2010-08-23T14:02:07-05:00 Welcome to The S.A.F.E. Site! Literature Ministries has always been proactive in the battle for purity. Believing that personal purity has never been harder for the Christian than it is today, we now supplement our own publications with carefully chosen resources. They are right here on The S.A.F.E. Site. Literature Ministies' biblically-based approach to dealing with online temptations has always included both prescriptive and preventative steps, emphasizing reliance on the Holy Spirit. Using the Bridge Strategy with integrity and wisdom in Christian evangelism http://internetevangelismday.com/no-trick.php 2010-08-14T08:12:07-05:00 Using the Bridge Strategy “Use what is dominant in a culture to change it very quickly. It is in your self-interest to find a way to be very tender” – Carved quotation outside Ulazdowski Castle Arts Centre, Warsaw The Bridge Strategy is a major factor in effective online outreach. It allows us to target any group of people according to their special interest or felt need, hobby, ethnicity or language (I Cor 9:19-23). This is a quite remarkable and unique capability of the Internet. However, it is important that there should be no element of trickery in either bringing people to the page in the first place, or the content they find when they reach it (2 Cor 4:2). At the same time, any outreach site should use appropriate contextualization for its readers: the X-Spectrum enables us to define this on a scale of 1 to 6. Worthy Christian witness - the difference between proselytism and true evangelism with integrity http://internetevangelismday.com/worthy-witness.php 2010-08-07T18:08:41-05:00 “Preach the gospel at all times – if necessary, use words.” A comforting thought, uttered by Francis of Assisi 900 years ago. Too comforting. Despite spending well over half my life with my mission, my natural tendency is to keep quiet and hope my light is shining. But Arthur Glasser (Announcing the Kingdom, Baker 2003, p. 156) reminds us that ̶...evangelization of the world is a matter of both words and activity. It cannot be reduced to mere presence without dismissing all the valid data in the New Testament about imploring people ‘on Christ’s behalf: be reconciled to God.” Nothing But the Best - #6077 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-personal-power/nothing-but-the-best-6077 2010-04-27T09:45:57-05:00 There are many ways to rob our King. By giving Him your leftover time; by making Him Lord of the things that don't matter that much to you and holding onto the things that you really care about - that relationship, that child, that dream, that favorite thing - that sin. You can rob God by taking on a work for Him and just doing it halfheartedly, by being lazy or irresponsible in getting it done. The "Go To" God That's Got To Go - #6022 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-personal-power/the-go-to-god-that-s-got-to-go-6022 2010-02-09T13:29:10-05:00 When Jesus has sacrificed His life for you, when He has all the power and all the love in the universe, how could you need something or someone else to fall back on? The Only Applause That Matters - #5943 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-personal-power/the-only-applause-that-matters-5943 2009-10-21T09:49:14-05:00 Who are you living to please: the boss, the pastor, your family, your friends, the church, some guy or girl, the community? They didn't die for you. Their rewards don't hold a candle to His. The early church leader, Stephen, knew that. He had stood up for the truth on the streets of Jerusalem and the crowd was not applauding. Followers with Footnotes - #5928 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-personal-power/followers-with-footnotes-5928 2009-10-01T09:18:46-05:00 Jesus assured Peter he was losing nothing any more than you lose the money you invest in a stock that later goes sky high. In fact, Jesus promises a reward a hundred times any sacrifice you make. What a return! But that kind of reward is reserved for those who give Jesus a blank piece of paper, not a contract.
