Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - I'm Dreaming of a Right Christmas - #4679
Right now this is a season when hearts are soft, when people's guards are down. If you're ever going to be able to put it together, this is it. Will you take the healing initiative - the peace initiative? Write that letter if that's what it takes to ask for the walls to come down. Make that phone call to that person. Send them an appreciation gift and attach that bridge-building note right now. Admit the mistakes if there's been any mistake on your part.


Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Church Talk - #4715
When you share with someone the life-saving information you have about Jesus, are you translating it into everyday, non-religious words they can understand, or just transmitting the message in words that may keep them from understanding the most important news of all.


Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Your Attitude and Your Altitude - #4238
Every pilot knows if your attitude is incorrect, there will be tragic results. Every person knows that - or at least we should. If your attitude is right, you can make it through almost anything. If your attitude is wrong, you're going to start losing altitude, tumbling, and eventually crashing. In life, we usually don't get to choose our circumstances, the kind of stuff we have to fly through. A lot of that is determined by forces or people beyond our control. But we can choose our attitude. And it will be our attitude, not our circumstances, that determine whether we stay up or go down.


Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Preparing the Battlefield - #4291
In James 5:16, our word for today from the Word of God, He simply says, "The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective." The King James Version puts it this way: "The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." No matter how you translate it, God is making it clear that praying for a person or a situation is ultimately decisive.


Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Sharp Edges - #4774
Maybe you get sharp and hurtful when you're tired, or when you're interrupted, or when something or someone messes up the way you had it planned. It could be that you become cutting and harsh when you're really stressed, or really frustrated, or when you don't get your way. I know where my buttons are that bring out my worst. I suspect you know where yours are, too. But for the sake of those we love, isn't it time we finally did something about the sharp edges that keep cutting them?


Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Orphan No More - #4786
Whatever you're in the middle of, Jesus has come to you today to bring you into His family. But He won't force His love on you. You need to choose it, which means recognizing that you really are in trouble with God because of your sin, and reaching out to Jesus as the only One who can rescue you from that trouble.


Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When the Lid Comes Off Your Life - #4800
When you get Jesus, you plug into the plan you were made for; you get heaven's direction for your decisions; you get inexhaustible, "unloseable" love; you get God's grace to help you weather every crisis; you have someone who's bigger than every challenge that's bigger than you are.


Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Winning the Fight Before it Begins - #4829
It's not what personality we book for the meeting, or the promotion, or the politics of having the right connections, or excellent planning, or a great program. There's no power in any of those by themselves. The power is in prayer - in God's people praying down the power and blessing of God as they boldly go into the Throne Room of the one who rules the galaxies.


Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Heightened Alert - #4126
In other words, when it comes to your very real spiritual enemy who would love to bring you down, be alert - and be defiant. Years ago, C. S. Lewis suggested that there are two extremes when it comes to our attitude toward the devil - ignoring him or being too curious about him. Lewis suggested that either attitude is one that your enemy can find very useful. Ignorance allows the devil to have his way in your life because you don't realize who's doing it or how he works. But, undue curiosity about the devil gives him a means of actually drawing you in his direction.


Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Blue Ribbon Performance - #4136
What the church did was so cool - they gave every child a blue ribbon. They rewarded their effort, not their performance. That's how their Boss does rewards - not their pastor - their Master, Jesus. And if you've been feeling that you don't measure up, that you're a loser compared to some winners you know, you need to look at yourself through your Lord's eyes for a while and see what He sees when He looks at you.
