Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Healthy Appetite - #4205
Watching my granddaughter's demand for mama's milk has actually helped me understand even more how God uses that example in showing us how to grow in Him. I feel like He's talking about my little darlin' when He says in 1 Peter 2:2, our word for today from the Word of God, "Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation."
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Surprising Secret of Greatness - #4213
If you've listened much to what Jesus says about leadership, these recent "discoveries" shouldn't be a great surprise to you. In Mark 10, beginning with verse 42, our word for today from the Word of God, Jesus presents what most people believe about being a leader - and then the truth according to Jesus.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Shuttled Home - #4234
Our word for today from the Word of God is actually the Scripture the President used so powerfully that awful day that the Columbia and its crew were lost. It seemed as if the words had been written for that very day. They're in Isaiah 40:26. "Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens; Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls them each by name. Because of His great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing." And then, with his eyes glistening, the President then said, "The same Creator who names the stars also knows the names of the seven souls we mourn today. The crew of the Shuttle Columbia did not return safely to Earth but we can pray they are safely home."
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Look at the Label - #4666
We have to check what damaging ingredients there might be and what we allow to feed our soul. Our soul feeds on the books and magazines we read, the TV and videos we watch, the music we listen to, the movies we go to, the jokes we listen to, the conversations we're involved in, the relationships we spend a lot of time on, and God's command is to do that without compromise. Abstain from sinful desires! Don't touch, don't watch, don't listen to, don't be around any input that Satan can use later to attack your soul.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Someone to Share the Load - #4253
All around us, there are people who are carrying a heavy load they should not have to carry alone. But most of us are so preoccupied with our own burdens that we have little or no time to lighten someone else's. And yet, we who follow Jesus, are following a Savior of whom the Bible says, "When He saw the crowds, He had compassion on them..." (Matthew 9:36)
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Refusing to Move, Losing it All - #4746
Is any place in life worth holding onto when it's going to cost you your life ... eternal life? Don't miss Jesus because you won't move. He left heaven and went to that horrible cross for you. And because of that, He's your only chance at heaven and at the life you were made for here on earth.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Unseen, Unbeatable Security - #4771
With all the unsettling possibilities on the road ahead of you - medically, financially, relationally, even the end of your life whenever it comes. A strong protector who will never leave you is something worth hoping for, worth searching for.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Noise of Neglect - #4772
Look at the action words - consider her - take her needs and feelings into consideration. Treat her with respect. That means listening to her; regarding her as someone important. She's supposed to be, after all, the most important voice on earth to you. Are some other voices drowning hers out? And treat her like a fellow heir in God's family. We're talking royal treatment here. How much does this matter to God? He says if you don't treat her like this, don't expect Him to answer your prayers!
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Shaking the Snake that Stalks You - #4794
Remember, Satan has no power over you except what you let him have. And every temptation the devil brings into your life is to do one of three things. Jesus said that "thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy." Why in the world would you go along with that?
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Why it Doesn't Have to Be the Way it's Always Been - #4801
Because of what Jesus did, things don't always have to be like they've always been. When you open your life to Jesus, God's Rescuer from our sin, you receive His supernatural power to beat the darkness inside you.
