Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Christmas Shepherds Where You Are - #8158
...little did those shepherds know when they camped out in that field that night that they were about to step into a life that matters.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Christmas Tree's Dirty Little Secret - #8154
Here’s the secret: the Christmas tree is decorated but it’s dead. Not long after Christmas Day, the lights and decorations will come off and the tree will be trashed. You know, that’s given me something to think about related to the spiritual condition of a whole lot of church folks.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Forgetting Who You Are- #8135
I am convinced that so many of the damaging choices we’ve made in our life are because of one fundamental amnesia issue. We forget who we really are. We start believing we are who our critics say we are, or our friends, or our culture, or our feelings, or the devil. A life that matters is anchored in the identity given us by the God who made us, who sent His Son to die for us.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - A Hurt Too Big to Handle - #8128
Their daughter had been counting down to her wedding when it happened. The day before, she had journaled about how her life had been pretty easy so far, and she didn’t know how she could handle something terrible happening. Well, the next day it did and she said, “His grace really is sufficient.” ... You know, it really is. That’s why tragedy or the fear of one doesn’t have to take you on a massive detour from a life that matters.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Overboard On Cleaning Up - #5688
We need to be stressing relationship, not reform. The message of reconciliation God has trusted to us is all about Jesus! People sin because they're sinners, and they will be sinners until they know the Savior! So stick to Jesus and stick to His cross, and don't encumber that simple Gospel with an attempt to clean up their lifestyle.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Wounded But Still Fighting - #8118
Now if that man can keep soldiering when he’s lost his sight, what was that I was complaining about? What do I let get me down?
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Where the Spotlight Belongs - #5667
Throughout Scripture, throughout history, pride has been the subtle destroyer of people that God wanted to use. As soon as He started to use them, they forgot it was Him, not them, that any success is a gift from God, not an achievement by us. It's all about Jesus; it's nothing about you. And even though men can't usually see the pride in your heart like they can see the more outward sins, God can see it and He'll not tolerate it.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Cold Nights and Rich Colors - #8113
Actually the way God changes leaves turns out to be a lot like the way He changes people. Some of the most beautiful people I’ve ever met are people who’ve been through a lot of cold nights.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Seeing Jesus - #8109
When people look at me, do they see Jesus? I’m not tall. No, I’ll never be that. No long hair, but I’m not talking physical resemblance anyway. When people see me, do they see someone who acts like Jesus?
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Starting Over - #8090
Now most of us would not go to those kind of extremes, but some of us do know the feeling of wishing we could start over, get that fresh start, move from a life that’s unfulfilling to a life that matters. Millions of us have discovered where new beginnings can be found.
