Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Delete Button You Can't Reach - #5281
Here's the problem. Because we live in a world where it's so easy to delete, we may start thinking we can delete things that, in fact, aren't going to go away. Like the consequences of our actions for example. The payback for the things we've done wrong. The judgment of Almighty God for making ourselves number one instead of Him. There are some things you just can't delete. Delay, maybe. Delete, never.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Knowing What it is to be "Broke" - #3824
You don't have to go into a prison to find people who are, in the words of that inmate, "broke." There's so much pain today, and so much of it is from broken things - broken family, broken health, broken heart, broken dream, broken relationships, broken trust - you may be "broke." Perhaps, even in spite of a life that's reasonably successful and an outward image that looks fine. You may be one of the millions of the walking wounded ... not sure where to put your pain...where to put your brokenness.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Always on the Air - #3843
God says your mouth is supposed to be used only for words that build up other people, never for words that tear them down. I wonder if there was a tape, let's say, of last week's conversations, how they would pass that Biblical test.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Hand in the Puppet - #3852
This was a very perceptive group of young people. They were somehow able to figure out that the blows were not really coming from the puppet - they were coming from the hand in the puppet. A conclusion that is not quite so obvious when the hand inside the puppet that's hitting you is actually your spiritual enemy - Satan.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - What to Do With the Messes We've Made - #5320
Sin really does mess things up. It messes up marriages, children, relationships, reputations, bodies, minds, souls. A lifetime of living our way instead of God's way is just too much for any human to clean up. No matter how religious or how nice we try to be.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Why Your Service Has Been Interrupted - #5328
God accepts only one response to sin, not rationalizing it, not excusing it, not comparing yourself to other people. He says, "Turn from it!" Do you want God's best? Then deal with the "wicked ways" that are holding back the very answers you're seeking.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Deadly Baggage - #3872
Too much baggage can cause a plane to crash. In fact, it can make a person crash, too. When you're carrying around a lot of emotional and spiritual baggage, it can really weigh you down - and make it very hard for you to fly or reach your destination. And these days, a lot of us are carrying around a lot of baggage. That could be what's holding you back - and even making you crash sometimes.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Biggest Mistake Of All - #3934
Some of those she came to help loved her - but others attacked her. And it's an ugly thing to brutalize someone who has come to help you. It happens to Jesus all the time. Often at the hands of people who have no idea that's what they're doing - people who have actually come close to Jesus, people who know a lot about Jesus.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Stain Is Gone - #3941
That is awesome good news. Imagine - no matter what you've done, no matter how far you've fallen, no matter how dirty you've gotten - if you belong to Jesus, you're clean - the stain is gone! No matter what your feelings tell you. No matter what people say about you. No matter what the devil tries to tell you. "No condemnation" is no condemnation! The stain is gone.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Stopping the Fire - #3992
You need to quickly go after moral fires, too. Satan is more likely to bring you down through small compromises than major collapses. That's why all of us have to be alert for the little cracks in our convictions, our integrity - the smoke of that first flirtation, that first wandering thought, that first experimentation, that first lie. By the time you've made a few more compromises, well, that fire could be well out of control and hurting things you don't want hurt.
