Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Password for Heaven - #4975
When Jesus died on the cross, He was dying so you don't have to. And the day He walked out of His grave, He proved He's got the power to turn your death sentence into eternal life.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Hero Anyone Can Be - #4977
You know Jesus and you know the person who listens to you. Who do you think Jesus is counting on to be the introducer? You don't have to be a Peter, but you can be an Andrew. You take your friend Jesus in one hand and the person you care about in the other hand, and you be the one who brings them together. For that person you introduce to Jesus, you will be the friend they will never forget!
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Storm-Proof Security - #4979
Don't let the storm make you forget that the Lord is your God and that His sovereignty is unshakeable. No life that is in the hands of the Sovereign Lord is out of control no matter how much it feels like the storm is winning. If you are His child, then every storm in your life has either been sent by Him or approved by Him for His glory, for your good and your growth.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Replaying Your Performance
Beyond our intrinsic, God-given worth, it's the kind of person we are that matters to God. That's worth much more than the kind of performance we give. We need to be praising people for how generous, how compassionate, how unselfish they are - strengths for which there are no medals, but the strengths that really make a difference in people's lives.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Unforgettable You - #4988
Do people feel that you care about their need? Do you stop to weep with those who weep and rejoice with those who rejoice? Are you calm in the midst of the frenzy or are you just another stress-carrier? Do people feel important when they're with you because you listen to them and focus on them? Do they feel lifted up or put down by being around you? People are so starved for praise and appreciation. If you give it, you will be a magnet.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Most Important Question About the Road You're On - #4996
A ransom is the price you pay to get someone back. The price to get us back was the death of Jesus Christ for the sin that separates us from God. A religion, a personal spirituality can make us feel spiritual, even close to God, but it can't pay the death penalty that we carry because we've dethroned God in our lives to run it ourselves. It took what Jesus did on the cross to do that. Only the man who died for your sin can remove your sin.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Driving Hard on the Wrong Road - #5010
It all comes down to what we do with Jesus. Trust Him and Him alone to get you to heaven or put your trust in something else and never get there. It's the choice every one of us must make. Our eternity hangs in the balance.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Making it Spring - #5013
Hard, difficult people are often folks who have experienced a lot of wintry treatment from people and some of it may be their own fault. But more cold will not help blossom them into something better. Only warmth will do that. How about singing up for the Barnabas Club? Make up your mind that you're going to ask God for the grace to regularly affirm that person, to tell them their worth and beauty. Make them feel safe when they're with you. Be the one person who expects the best of them, not the worst.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - No Life Without the Source - #5050
Either you have the Son of God in your heart and you have life forever, or you don't have the Son of God in your heart and you will miss eternal life.
Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Always Caught - #5062
The fact is when it comes to people catching us, we often do get away with sin. Your parents may never find out, your mate may never know, your boss may never catch you, your friends may never find out, or your pastor, or your congregation. It sets you up with the myth that you're getting away with it. Nobody ever gets away with a sin. The bill may be delayed, but the bill always comes. Adam and Eve's death sentence came later, but it came. Postponed judgment never means judgment has been canceled.
